Example text

Chau claims that this general approach makes the translator at once humble and more responsible, taking part in the active creation of a translation rather than remaining a slave to illusions of necessary equivalence. Others might claim that the approach encourages the translator to transgress the ethics of fidelity or equivalence. Here, very clearly, the paths of the philosophers have diverged widely from the positivistic tenets of 20th century linguistic analysis. As formulated, the hermeneutic approach reflects aspects of the 20th century loss of certainty.

These chains allow concepts to be borrowed and thus constantly displaced. They also allow authority to be projected back onto the discipline referred to, such that authority itself is also constantly displaced across our disciplines. This frame enables us to idealise Western philosophy as a set of discourses that do not ostensibly borrow authority from external disciplines. It is, if you will, a place where terms and concepts would be elaborated and refined for use in other disciplines; it might supremely act in the service of others.

This is a fine analysis of the discursive form of ideal equivalence. At that point, however, the philosopher can go no further without recognising the intervention of historical subjectivities (a translator chooses to render X as Y). Historical subjectivity was once again considered beyond the analytical philosophers' remit. D. Hart's (1970) little-remarked observation that translators cannot simultaneously preserve self-reference, truth-value and reference. This means that the sentence 'The first word of this very sentence has three letters' cannot be rendered word for word into French (where the first word would have two letters) without becoming untrue.
