Feminist bakış açısı kuramı için bir rehber olarak Gadamer hermenötiğini yeniden yapılandıran bu çalışma beş bölümden oluşmaktadır. İlk olarak, birkaç feminist bakış açısı kuramı ve bilginin hem konumsal hem de hakikat olması konusunu ele almadaki başarısızlıkları incelenecektir. İkinci olarak, Gadamer’in önerisi olarak hakikata ulaşmadaki tarihselliğin etkisi incelenecektir. Üçüncü olarak, hakikate ulaşmada bir yol olarak Gadamer’in kavramı ‘ufukların kaynaşması’ tartışılacaktır. Dördüncü olarak, Wasterling’in Gadamer’e getirdiği eleştirilere ve Gadamer’in maskulen epistemolojinin yerine feminist epistemolojiyi ikame ettiği iddialarına açıklık getirilecektir. Son olarak, Gadamer’in önerdiği hermenötiğin feminist bakış açısı kuramı için uygun olup olmadığı, uygun ise nasıl uygun olduğu değerlendirilecektir.  

This work which reconstructs Gadamer’s hermeneutics for guiding feminist standpoint theory consists of five chapters. Firstly, several possible feminist standpoint theories and their difficulties in addressing how knowledge is situated yet true are clarified. Secondly, it will be examined that Gadamer’s proposal for the relevance of the historicity on the reaching to truth. Thirdly, we will discuss Gadamer’s notion of fusion of horizons as a way to reach to truth. Fourthly, we will elaborate Wasterling’s critique against Gadamer and some arguments that Gadamer’s hermeneutics substitutes feminist epistemology for masculine epistemology.  Finally, this paper will evaluate Gadamer’s proposal for hermeneutics is appropriate for feminist standpoint theory, if so, how it is appropriate.
