Philosophers-hermeneutics in their conceptual constructions often set no store by extra-rational forms of knowledge and make sometimes superfluous account of a pre-understanding or intuitive pre-knowledge the presence of which alleged to furnish us with complete understanding. On the other hand, it seems that insight into, of the whole, often plays enormously high role in hermeneutics.
