Abstract

Viola has advanced a model, inspired by Gadamer, that I will call «hermeneutic practical interpretation» and has endeavoured to reconcile it with pragmatic interpretative theories in order to explain «other-directed actions and intentions». The key argument is that intention is about meaning and therefore also about interpretation. I will challenge the view that the understanding of «other-directed actions and intentions» should be conceived as an «interpretative» or «hermeneutic» exercise. My argument is that it is via practical reason (all the way through) that we can satisfactorily explain and provide a solution to the «guidance» problem and «other-directed actions».
