"If it is true that there is always more than one way of construing a text, it is not true that all interpretations are equal… The text is a limited field of possible construction… It is always possible to argue for or against an interpretation, to confront interpretations, to arbitrate between them, and to seek for an agreement, even if this agreement remains beyond our reach."
