When undertaking a hermeneutic-philosophical discourse, centered on the notion of Bildung or human formation, it emerges as an epistemic objective to provide meaningful explanations in the field of the Sciences of the Spirit. Here, Hans-Georg Gadamer has had a fruitful philosophical innovation that affects both the understanding of man and ethics and politics. This research on his contributions to the Bildung is divided into two questions. In the theoretical field: Is it true that Gadamer gives us an original version of the Bildung that can be said to exceed those conceived by the philosophers of the German tradition? Is its universality such that it can be applied to other realities outside the "Heritage of Europe"? In the field of application: Does your version of the Bildung have any significant ethical or political relevance or incidence in today's society? Later, we will analyze the Hegelian perspective of formation as a process focused on the category of "ascent to universality". Both parts seek to establish the fundamental theoretical background from which Gadamer drew for the elaboration of his hermeneutics. We will present those revealing theoretical-practical contributions into the spectrum of Bildung from the humanistic tradition.
