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.

Author Item Summary Meta data
Habermas III 153
Interpretation/Action/Weber/Habermas: the interpreter of an action only needs to determine "how the action would have proceeded if all circumstances and intentions of the co-interested parties had been known and if the means had been chosen in a strictly procedural rational manner, based on what we consider to be valid experience. (1) ((s) > Contrafactual conditional/Weber).
Habermas: the more clearly an action corresponds to the procedural rational course of events, the less further psychological considerations are needed to explain it.
Habermas III 154
An action can be interpreted as more or less instrumentally rational. By proposing a rational interpretation, the interpreter himself takes a standpoint on the claim with which procedural rational actions occur; he himself leaves the attitude of a third person in favour of the attitude of one involved, which examines and, if necessary, criticizes a problematic claim of validity.
