To tackle the evolution challenges of adaptive systems, this paper argues on the necessity of hermeneutic approaches that help to avoid too early elimination of design alternatives. This visionary paper proposes the Hermeneutics Framework, which computationally integrates a design rationale management system, an auto-adaptive control system and a reflective and modular event-driven language runtime together. The Hermeneutics Framework is, among others, suitable for implementing dynamic adaptive software systems that undergo intensive evolution cycles.
