It is the community that invests a text, Modern literary theory book for that matter life itself, with meaning. The Linguistic Turn Peter Berger argues that "reality is socially constructed, and therefore that truth over and beyond these social constructions cannot easily be attained. This culture is referred to by Fish as an "interpretive community" and the strategies of an interpreter are community property, and insofar as they at once enable and limit the operations of his consciousness, he is too [community property].
