The first is hermeneutics (Heidegger, Gadamer, Ricouer) whose grounding concept is interpretation and is concerned with the search for how things (texts, actions, communications,) become meaningful within social contexts. The second is the analytic orientation whose origins lie in the Vienna Circle (Wittgenstein, Carnap) and which is concerned with what can be determined as meaningful according to agreed rules and conventions and what therefore cannot.
