The act of understanding, as Martin Heidegger’s notion of the “existential†tries to show, belongs to the fundamental structure of human being-in-the-world. In this sense, the study of how we understand and what it means to understand requires collaboration among anthropological, philosophical, and hermeneutical approaches to the essence of the human. The paper will introduce the topic and the issue of “Teoria†devoted to it.
