Hermeneutical consciousness is the human capacity of interpretation through the hermetic teachings of the sacred marriage of opposites, the goal of the Great Work of the alchemists transmitted into western philosophy through Goethe and other mystics such as Sweand reached American letters by the Transcendentalist Movement chiefly due to the hermeneutics of Margaret Fuller, the Mother of American literature whose first text was a biography of Goethe.
