About the Book

On Interpretation challenges a number of entrenched assumptions about being and knowing that have long kept theorists debating at cross purposes. Patrick Colm Hogan first sets forth a theory of meaning and interpretation and then develops it in the context of the practices and goals of law, psychoanalysis, and literary criticism. In his preface, Hogan discusses developments in semantics and related fields that have occurred over the decade since the book first appeared.
