Abstract: 
My paper shows how the concept of phronesis was the basis of Gadamer’s thought, right from
the beginning. In fact, the problem of the development of Aristotle’s thought, and his
outdistance of Plato and in his critique of the doctrine of ideas, takes place because of this
concept. I would also refer to the first review of Jäger’s book which is not set out on the
discussion of the development of aristotelian Metaphysics on the basis of the doctrine of ideas,
but on the basis of the critique of Good, of the True and the Right. Aristotle develops it in his
First Book about Nicomachean Ethics and basically on the basis of the critique of the unity of
knowing and acting, which constituted the central core of Plato’s ethics.
