The same way you interpret what anyone writes. There's an entire field of study designed to do just that. It's called 'Literary Criticism'. Since you cannot know what the writer was actually thinking, you must concentrate on the written words. The choice of words conveys both the surface meaning and additional concepts, giving a fuller, richer meaning to the text. (That's what Deconstruction is--the study of choice. You may thank me for saving you from reading Derrida and Foucault and spending two years steeped in confusion.)
