Stephen Neale on Meaning and Interpretation

Stephen Neale discusses questions of meaning and interpretation in everyday life and in the law. How relevant are intentions? Do words carry their meanings independently of the contexts in which they are used? Although this is about the meaning of language it can be extended to a discussion on the meaning and interpretation of works of art. Another related discussion is whether or not the meaning of words is interpreted in the same way as the meaning of works of art.
