“…the task of moral knowledge is to determine what the concrete situation asks of him–or, to put it another way, the person acting must view the concrete situation in light of what is aksed of him in general. But–negatively put–this means that knowledge that cannot be applied to the concrete situation remains meaningless and even risks obscuring what the situation calls for." (313)
“For the hemeneutical problem too is clearly distinct from ‘pure’ knowledge detached from any particular kind of being."
“For moral knowledge, as Aristotle describes it, is clearly not objective knowledge–i.e., the knower is not standing over against a situation that he merelyu observes; he is directly confronted with what he sees. It is something that he has to do."
“The purpose of his (a man’s) knowledge is to govern his action."
The above are Gadamer’s interpretation of Aristotle’s idea of moral knowledge in Nicomedean Ethics.
