Book: Method Today

Chapter: 20. Homo Interpretans

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.34438


This chapter looks at Epicurean physics and ethics, nineteenth German Romanticism, and contemporary problems in criminal justice, to reflect on questions about interpretation, as raised by Kevin Shilbrack. I argue that interpretation is useful precisely where it overlaps with explanation.
