Abstract:

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.
