Summary/Abstract: This study analyzes the relation between the text and the interpreter. The starting premise lies on the fact that the issue solved by the interpreter while lecturing the text is related to identification of meanings and meaning conferment. The method used is multiply-articulated: it deals with elements specific to the meta-analytic method, elements of hermeneutics and elements belonging to the comparative method. The conclusion we reach is that on the one hand, by means of the text generated, the author controls some of the interpretation’s reference points and on the other, that, as the text itself is an interpretation as well, any interpretation is at least in part the interpretation of an interpretation, that is a superior interpretation.
