Summary:
This dissertation develops an ethics of meaning. In the first chapter, I offer an account of meaning that comprehends its many varieties---natural, cultural, linguistic, literary, and ethical meaning, for example---by appeal to the structural role meaning plays in the practice of interpretation. In Chapter 2, I develop a distinctive account of the concept of ethical meaning ("meaning" as it's used in the phrase "the meaning of life"). In Chapter 3, I develop a new account of irony on the basis of the comprehensive-interpretive account of meaning introduced in Chapter 1.
