As a consequence of the distance between meaning and interpretation, scholars have typically taken one of several paths that Smith surveys.
Fall of Interpretation: Philosophical Foundations For A Creational Hermeneutic
First, they may have sought to overcome the limitations of the gap between meaning and interpretation, whether by devising finer rules for interpretation or by removing those ideological mediations that interpose themselves in the gap as the putative means of bridging that very abyss. Smith observes that both responses simply assume that the gap constitutes a problem, and that there must be some remedy for the plight of interpretation. Second, Smith highlights a tendency among other scholars he cites Gadamer, Habermas, and Pannenberg to treat meaning as the asymptotic ideal to which interpretation, properly pursued, eventually draws near.
Whether or not interpreters ever finally attain meaning, the study of hermeneutics involves charting the course toward that eschatological goal. Thus, these philosophers also maintain the assumption that interpretation constitutes an accidental recuperative gesture, not desirable in itself but useful as the means of approaching true meaning. Smith questions the justification of assuming that interpretation is unsatisfactory in the present and can be overcome in the end.
