This volume collects twenty-one original essays that discuss Michael Krausz's distinctive and provocative contribution to the theory of interpretation. At the beginning of the book Krausz offers a synoptic review of his central claims, and he concludes with a substantive essay that replies to scholars from the United States, England, Germany, India, Japan, and Australia. Krausz's philosophical work centers around a distinction that divides interpreters of cultural achievements into two groups. Singularists assume that for any object of interpretation only one single admissible interpretation can exist. Multiplists assume that for some objects of interpretation more than one interpretation is admissible. A central question concerns the ontological entanglements involved in interpretive activity. Domains of application include works of art and music, as well as literary, historical, legal and religious texts. Further topics include truth commissions, ethnocentrism and interpretations across cultures.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Michael Krausz's influential and important work on interpretation in all its cultural manifestations is the focus of this comprehensive collection of discussion papers. In engaging with Krausz the contributors show the richness, subtlety, and depth of his thinking. There are few guides more percipient and sure-footed in this terrain than Michael Krausz." - Peter Lamarque, Editor, The British Journal of Aesthetics and Professor of Philosophy, University of York
