But there can be no unequivocal articulation of the syntactic conventions governing the use of (say) the term "aggression", as any such articulation would itself be embedded in diverse contexts of usage. Attempted justifications for the thesis that meaning is contextually dependent can be found in the hermeneutic contributions of Gadamer and others.
