In our multimedia age, text description presents many conceptual problems: texts, as cultural objects, cannot be interpreted without descriptions of genre, communicative condiitons, and language, which positivist approaches have proved unable to provide. This volume addresses itself as much to linguists as to computer scienctists, arguing that rational hermeneutics can offer better descriptive methods by allowing the theoretical and practical conditions of text interpretations to be deined.
