The epilogue attempts to bring together this experiment in analysis and politics by means of delineating the hermeneutic character of existence. Because of this hermeneutic character of existence, it is argued, a critical hermeneutics provides not only the best possibility for coming to understand the worlds of which we are intertwined, but also, and ultimately most importantly, the ways in which we can best participate in these worlds so as to help make them the best possible worlds for ourselves and our nonhuman co-habitants. Critical hermeneutics, then, provides us with hope that we need not continue to be disappointed.
