Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Translation and Philosophy
Edited By: Lisa Foran
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?430794
Series Title: Intercultural Studies and Foreign Language Learning - Volume 11
Description:

To what extent is philosophy reliant on translation and how does this practice
impact on philosophy itself? How should philosophical texts be translated? Is
translation inherently philosophical? Can philosophy be described as a 'type
of translation'? The essays in this collection seek to respond to these
intriguing and provocative questions. Exploring a wide range of issues, from
the complexities of translating ambiguous philosophical terms to the role of
language in concepts of identity and society, each essay highlights the
manner in which the two disciplines rely on (and intersect with) each other.
Drawing the collection together is an understanding of both translation and
philosophy as practices which seek for meaning in our complex relationship
with language and the world.
