Hans Albert, Critical Rationalism and Universal Hermeneutics, in Jeff Malpas, Ulrich Arnswald, Jens Kertscher (ed.), Gadamer's Century. Essays in Honor of Hans-Georg Gadamer (MIT Press, March 2002)

Last paragraph:

 It is quite clear to me that my criticism of universal hermeneutics, and of the linguistically oriented idealism influenced by it, will make no impact whatsoever an international discussion, since German contributions will hardly come into question here. Moreover, mod­ern Anglo‑Saxon philosophers seem to have an attraction to Ger­man philosophy just inasmuch as its products are unmistakably marked by Hegel, Heidegger, or Gadamer. This is true even for ex­ponents of economic thought whose reception of German herme­neutics occasionally begets almost grotesque consequences." Karl Popper's critical rationalism has had much less chance of having an explicit impact an discussions within the range of philosophy or so­cial science than, for instance, neoclassical empiricism or Ludwig Wittgenstein's later philosophy‑both of which are more closely re­lated to American pragmatism." On the other hand, Popper's ideas are time and again being adopted an the quiet, without their source being revealed. When they do appear in an analytical or hermeneuti­cal makeup they seem to be more appealing than in their original state. But they nonetheless appear, at least to some extent, to have already become part and parcel of philosophical "common sense."
