Armstrong argues that conflicting readings occur because readers with opposing suppositions about language, literature, and life can generate irreconcilable hypotheses about a text. Without endorsing a particular critical methodology, the author offers a theory designed to help readers better understand the causes and consequences of interpretive disagreement so that they may make more informed choices about the various interpretive strategies available to them.
Originally published in 1990.

A timely contribution to current debates about the interpretation of texts, both literary and nonliterary. The author steers a judicious middle course without ignoring the legitimate points made by the best 'anarchist' and 'absolutist' critics.--Paul Hernadi, University of California, Santa Barbara
