|To mean, intending, philosophy: the intention of a spokeswoman to refer to an object, a property of an object or a situation by means of her words, gestures or actions in a manner which is recognizable for others. From what is meant together with the situation, listeners should be able to recognize the meaning of the characters used.|

Intention / Quentin Skinner: we cannot say about an acting person that she had intended or done something what she could under no circumstances accept as a true description of what she intended or did.
Interpretation / Rorty: if we accept that, we can go ahead and ask: What would Aristotle said about the moons of Jupiter or about Quine’s anti-essentialism?
