Faye, Jan (2007) Interpretation in the Natural Sciences. In:  EPSA07: 1st Conference of the European Philosophy of Science Association (Madrid, 15-17 November, 2007).
Interpretation in science has gained little attention in the past because philosophers of science believed that interpretation belongs to the context of discovery or must be associated with meaning. But scientists often speak about interpretation when they report their findings. Elsewhere I have argue in favour of a pragmatic-rhetorical theory of explanation, and it is in light of this theory that I suggest we can understand interpretation in the natural sciences.
