“Things are like words. They have meaning, but that meaning isn’t singlevoiced and exclusive. Even so, we almost always undestand words and things well. We rarely run into a word that genuinely stumps us, and we rarely encounter things that we stare blanky, saying: ‘What the heck is that? Is it a car part or something I can eat?’ It happens, but it’s rare. Nor do we ever run into a word or thing that we insist can mean only one thing. (…) Things and words do not have meanings apart from us.” [página 182-183].
