McCarthy develops a theory of radical interpretation--the project of characterizing from scratch the language and attitudes of an agent or population--and applies it to the problems of indeterminacy of interpretation first described by Quine. The major theme in McCarthy's study is that arelatively modest set of interpretive principles, properly applied, can serve to resolve the major indeterminacies of interpretation.
