Abstract. The article deals with the meaning of the term "pre-understanding" as a structural element of hermeneutic practice introduced in philosophical hermeneutics by its founder Hans-Georg Gadamer. The model of so-called hermeneutic circle is analyzed critically. The author proposes a hypothesis that in some cases "pre-understanding" identified with understanding reflects achieved by the human combined prior experience, "pre-reflexive purpose of consciousness", the condition, which is previous to the start of the new interpretation and understanding of the undisclosed sense of any phenomenon in the problem situation.
Key words and phrases: герменевтическая практика, "предпонимание", интерпретация, понимание, герменевтический круг, hermeneutic practice, "pre-understanding", interpretation, understanding, hermeneutic circle.
