|Interpretation: A) making statements about other statements, whereby the new statements of the vocabulary make use of the original statements and possibly introduce new vocabulary. If no new vocabulary is introduced, new information can be obtained by changing the syntactic elements.|
B) In logic, the insertion of values (objects) instead of the constants or free variables.

> Objet ambigu/artifact/interpretation/Game of Life/Conway/Dennett: Question: are the "Eater", "Glider", etc. designed objects or natural formations? The easiest Glider arises obviously from the rules, no one had to make it.

Interpretation theory/Dennett/Fodor/Lepore: (Brentano: Thesis: the intentional cannot be traced back to the physical).
Dennett: i.e. Ontologically, there are no such things as belief, desires, intentional phenomena!
Interpretation: they are, however, indispensable as elements of interpretation (epistemic). (s). That is, that intentionality (or its attribution) is accessible only by interpretation (of behavior?). ("Interpretivism", "interpretativism").
Intentional attribution/Dennett: intentional attribution is always wrong. Because there is no intentionality which is ontological (merely as epistemically useful concepts), Vs intentional realism.
Principle of Charity/Fodor/Lepore: must be intrinsically holistic, which is also accepted by Dennett.
Interpretation theory:/Fodor/Lepore: according to Dennett, there are two schools:
1. Definition Projectivism/Dennett: one ascribes to the other the internal states that one would have oneself in the appropriate circumstances.
2. Definition Normativism/Dennett: one ascribes to the other internal states which he should have in the circumstances.
There are, of course, close relations between normativism and holism.
