Aristotle on Interpretation - Dictionary of Arguments

Ricoeur I 34
Peri hermenias/Interpretation/Aristotle: provides a "too long" interpretation term:
Interpretation is every sound produced by the voice and carrying meaning - every
phoné semantiké, any phoné semantiké. In this sense, the noun in itself is an interpretation, and so is the verbum, because we say something with it; but the simple saying (phásis) is taken from the total meaning of the logos; the full meaning of the hermeneia appears, therefore, only with the complex saying, the sentence that Aristotle calls logos, and which includes the command, the wish, the request as well as the meaningful speech. The hermeneia, in its full sense, is the meaning of the sentence.
Ricoeur I 35
The fraction between the designation and the thing has already been made with the noun, and this distance marks the place of interpretation. Not every speech necessarily remains true;
it does not adhere to being; (...).
(...) the path for a hermeneutics of double meanings [seems] to be blocked; the concept of meaning demands the unambiguity of meaning: the definition of the principle of identity in the logical and ontological sense demands this unambiguity of meaning; (...).
Ricoeur I 37
Def Interpretation/Aristoteles: "to testify something about something".
Ricoeur: his discussion of the multiple meanings of being breaks through the purely logical and ontological theory of unambiguity. Cf. >Interpretation/Ricoeur.
