One common response to the conflict of interpretations is to judge one’s own interpretation correct and all others wrong. The most radical believers in determinate meaning posit not only the possibility of a single correct interpretation, but claim to possess it. Interpretation on this view becomes a form of absolute knowledge, with clear-cut “right” and “wrong” answers. However, it is precisely this claim to absolute knowledge that invites the Undoer’s skeptical response.
