Glasersfeld E. von (1983) On the concept of interpretation. Poetics 12(2/3): 207–218. Fulltext at
Like many nomina actionis, “interpretation” designates either an activity or its results. When someone says, “I’m not sure how to in-terpret what she did,” it may mean that he sees several possible in-terpretations and does not know which to choose as the most plausible; but it may also mean that he has no interpretation because he sees no way of constructing one. In the first case, the speaker’s quandary pertains to the results; in the second, to the activity. In this chapter, I shall be concerned with interpretation as activity and only incidentally with the appropriateness or choice of its results.
Key words: philosophy, language
