The ZigZag Café

We will be convening here at the ZigZag café, Suisse, on Thursdays for conversation and dialogue. I invite you to stop by every Thursday for the question of the day. Your thoughts and participation are most welcome. Pull up a stool, avec un café, un thé, ou un chocolat chaud, et un croissant, and join in here on Thursday at the ZZ café.

For today:

“This coffee is poison” can have multiple meanings: quick, get a doctor; you forgot to put sugar in my coffee; this is lousy coffee. How might we draw a distinction in interpretation between the inescapable relativity of meaning, and the escapable relativism in meaning?
