Christine Oliver’s chapter focuses on the core interest of systemic practice in the relationship between context and meaning. It is in framing the context that we decide what a particular behaviour means. She has become interested in the effect of the moral dimension on the way we decide what something means or on what she calls “the interpretive act”. The moral dimension consists of the implicit rules of what is acceptable or legitimate behaviour or action. Oliver hypothesizes that there is a key moment in communication where a choice is made about how an interpretive act will determine future contexts.
