Accordingly, any determination related to the text is placed in the context of the text. The reflection of hermeneutical concepts does not arise from the activity of the one who interprets. The concepts are initially reflected by the text and turned toward the interpreter. It is only in this way that the latter can ponder them. The experience of artworks is hermeneutical; they must be interpreted, and in this way they can be conceptually determined according to what they are. But the experience of art exceeds normal hermeneutical experience in that the significance and meaning essentially lead to astonishment.
