This edited work titled "Musings and Meanings : Hermeneutical Ripples..." is the outcome of the international conference hosted in honor of two eminent veteran scholars Richard De Smet and Jean de Marneffe of the Faculty of Philosophy at Jnana-Deepa Vidyapeeth, Pune in January 2014 to dwell extensively on the art of understanding from both the Eastern and the Western perspectives. All the scholarly essays in this edited work critically engage with contemporary theories of cross-cultural understanding and the discourse on the stranger. This work therefore is attempt to formulate a cross-cultural interpretation that incorporates the ambivalence of boundaries, the enabling dimension of essentialism and acknowledges the role that fore-meanings and fore-structures have on cross-cultural understanding.
