Guess Who

Who wrote the following in the context of a discussion of postmodernism and textual interpretation?

“Two interpretations may, of course, be equally valid renderings of what actually is the (‘objective’ ) truth, even if we cannot know it ‘objectively,’ because they are looking at the same reality from different perspectives; but some interpretations actually distort the truth, or betray the truth, and thus are false interpretations.”

This statement is true, but not everyone I know would think so, especially if we spun out some examples.  We all would do well to remember this.
