Description The article shows that the hermeneutical conceptions of H.-G. Gadamer, C. G. Jung and J. Derrida share the dialectic, imaginative and projecting conception of human experience. The author of this article argues that the hermeneutical theories of Gadamer and Jung are closely connected with the analogous conceptions of the temporality and of the finitude of human being. Special attention is also paid to Gadamers theory of the organic time. This theory, as well as Jungs theory of individuation, is based on the conception of the cyclical process of life, a perpetual renewall of balance and a recurrent return to the beginning, regeneration and rebirth. Therefore Gadamers philosophical hermeneutics and Jungs hermeneutically oriented philosophy are prospective, stressing the most profound forms of temporal experience. According to the author we can find a certain analogy between Jungs view on the energetic character of the world reality and Gadamers conception of the dialectical character of sprachliches Geschehen as the medium of hermeneutical ontology. The last part of the article reconstructs the hermeneutical aspects of J. Derridas philosophical thought and its importance for the theory of interpretation and for the crosscultural communication.
