In this book, Michael Krausz addresses the concept of interpretation in the visual arts, the emotions, and the self. He examines competing ideals of interpretation, their ontological entanglements, reference frames, and the relation between elucidation and self-transformation.“This book marks a decisive moment in the philosophical scholarship on interpretation. Krausz is a unique figure in the current philosophical climate, equally capable of theoretical sophistication, eloquence, and compelling argumentation. Widely acclaimed for his major contributions to interpretation theory, he has now added a crucial dimension to his work, and to the field itself.”Andreea Deciu Ritivoi, Carnegie-Mellon University (Author: Yesterday's Self; Editor: Interpretation and Its Objects: Studies in the Philosophy of Michael Krausz)Interpretation and Translation (IT) explores philosophical issues of interpretation and its cultural objects. It also addresses commensuration and understanding among languages, conceptual schemes, symbol systems, reference frames, and the like. The series publishes theoretical works drawn from philosophy, rhetoric, linguistics, anthropology, religious studies, art history, and musicology.
