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?
