Even more so than the preceding chapter’s ambition to treat in the limited space of its pages the ponderously debated topic of canonicity, an attempt to consider the topic of interpretation in the confines of a single chapter would seem at best presumptuous if not merely foolhardy. As with Chapter 4 , however, I have sought to calibrate my aim and method to the modest scope of this book

in The problem of literary value
Susan Strange

Chapter 3 Some other interpretations In the last chapter, I suggested that the roots of the world’s economic disorder are monetary and financial; that the disorder has not come about by accident, but has in fact been nurtured and encouraged by a series of government decisions. This view is shared by a few, but not by all, whether they write for the press, the academic journals or in books. If we look beyond the literature that deals specifically with money and finance, we find a much wider range of interpretations of the causes of our present troubles. To

5 Republican perspectives on constitutional interpretation Introduction Republican scholarship has focused a great deal on the legitimacy of rights-based constitutional review, as considered in Chapter 4, and to a lesser extent on the concept and nature of constitutional rights, as discussed in Chapter 2. However, it has paid relatively little attention to the discrete issue of constitutional interpretation.Yet since the power of constitutional review itself is so well established and widely accepted in Ireland, the question of constitutional interpretation is

An ecocritical reading

13 On-site natural heritage interpretation: an ecocritical reading William Welstead Visitors to the countryside are increasingly faced with a variety of panels, interpretation centres and other interventions that convey selected narratives and ways of seeing our natural heritage. This chapter explores the scope for these cultural objects to be included in ecocritical enquiry. The ubiquity and undemanding nature of many displays makes for an accessible source of information about basic ecology as filtered through the viewpoint of site managers for national and

2 Interpretations of Irish social partnership Introduction The subject of social partnership has been approached in a number of ways. This chapter provides an overview of these approaches in order to set the scene for examining the more specific topic of the CVP. This discussion covers both historical and comparative perspectives and is tailored to the more recent period, i.e. since 1987. In the first part, the variety of sceptical perspectives on the Irish model of social partnership is explored. Much of this material is pitched at a negative and abstract level

Shapely 02 2/8/07 01:32 Page 52 2 National interpretations Although local authorities worked within a common framework of national legislation and policy directives from the government, policy was also determined by local problems, council politics, the attitude of local authority officials and the distinct urban culture in which cities operated. Understanding the complexities of the policy process, appreciating the process of government and governance across urban society, underlines the importance of locality. This chapter highlights the significance of

11 1 Traditional scriptural interpretation and sixteenth-century allegoresis: old and new This chapter offers a brief orientation to allegorical and typological reading within the Christian tradition. In allegorical reading, or allegoresis, the writer finds a figurative or hidden message in a biblical text previously presumed to be literal. In typology, a literal person or object functioned as a precursor or anticipatory example of someone or something to come. Typology and allegorical reading were “traditional” both in the sense that they were already well

contradiction – to be all good things to all people. Widening the interpretation of democracy solves little, and only exacerbates existing difficulties. This book has argued that two interpretations of democracy have undeservedly gained an especial import: those based upon private property rights, and those focused on differential cultural rights. But, as sections one and two illustrate

Leslie Huckfield

entrepreneurship and non-profit models or an interpretation of market-oriented WISEs from mainland Europe, as typified in contributions from the EMES. Because these discourses exclude other significant mainland European and Canadian literatures, for nearly 20 years UK contributions on social enterprise and third sector development have been dominated by the market. In particular, these rarely mention earlier

the support of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, Political Division IV. The adverse interpretation of the zakat committees during this period, that they were simply fronts for Hamas, is held up to the light, and a more benign alternative interpretation is proposed. Throughout the text is faithful to the principle of open enquiry: that further evidence could
