Abstract: 

The aim of this article is to make a picture of the general cultural-intellectual circumstances of the time in terms of the relation contemporary man finds between himself and the ‘truth’. One way to grasp this relation is obviously by putting the subject into its historical perspective. We begin the inquiry with the genealogy of the tradition of scribe and producing the text-as its achievement-in archaic and modern cultures. ‘Book’ has been taken to be the symbol of the source of the truth, and in movies, fairy tales, paintings, poems and literature, has always -been the sign of knowledge or truth itself. That is why the text is an appropriate departure point. We take it for granted the relationship man finds between text and the truth is subject to the very relation he finds between himself and the truth. Thus, studying the contemporary human's concept of the place of himself before the truth, we have no option but to deal with hermeneutics. Since this inquiry is not in line with only our linguistic interests, but with our philosophical question (vicinity or distance man feels between himself and the truth), we choose by nature philosophical hermeneutics among several hermeneutical approaches; in Heidegger's philosophical hermeneutics all consequences find ontological implications.
The ultimate answer turns out to be that contemporary man considers he has have a very good chance of finding the truth directly and meeting it face to face immediately. It is important to note that this article attempts describe cultural conditions disinterestedly and make no issue of Heidegger's philosophy at all.
