What the meaning of "meaning" is (or isn’t)
January 4, 2007 § 11 Comments
Every nontrivial finite text underdetermines the space of possible meanings of that text. In other words, every nontrivial text taken alone and in itself has multiple possible[**] mutually incompatible interpretations. Including this one.
[**] Note that “possible” and “plausible” aren’t the same thing.
