Pressestimmen

One of The Guardian's Best Books of 2015, selected by Hari Kunzru One of The Times Literary Supplement's Books of the Year 2014, chosen by David Wootton One of The Times Higher Education Supplement's Books of the Year 2014, chosen by Robert S. C. Gordon One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 2014 "[W]hat may be the weirdest book the twenty-first century has so far produced... [T]his is a considerable and entertaining book, full of odd words beautifully, at times owlishly, annotated."--Adam Gopnik, New Yorker "[An] extraordinary book... Many of the entries are illuminating, but what is most fascinating about the book is its partial vision of a fragment of European culture, through the dissection of its philosophical vocabulary."--Tim Crane, Times Literary Supplement "[A] cornucopia of lexical trajectories and semantic adventures across a wide variety of languages and histories... As for the achievement of Emily Apter, Jacques Lezra and Michael Wood in orchestrating the English edition, that qualifies as heroic ... this book is another valuable reminder that a philosophy that ignores its own history, that pretends to operate as if it had no history, is self-impoverishing."--Christopher Prendergast, London Review of Books Praise for the French edition: "This dictionary's great idea is to address European philosophy from the point of view of translation... [It] attains its goal by putting this principle to work: one cannot always translate a foreign concept in one word, but one can always explain it. And when one has grasped the explanation, one has acquired the concept."--Le Figaro Litteraire Praise from the French edition: "A dictionary cannot be summarized. One great lesson, nevertheless, which can be distilled from this one (it can be gathered in the masterworks of the entries 'Traduire' ['Translate'] and 'Langues et traditions' ['Languages and traditions']), is that no language is born a philosophical one. It becomes philosophical, as it engages in exchanges with other languages. Philosophical language is impure language, and a national philosophy cannot, therefore, exist. This conviction can perhaps be one of the meanings of the unity of Europe, to which the Vocabulaire renders homage, and service."--Vincent Aubin, Le Figaro (review translated by Mark Jensen) "[I]nteresting reading. The Dictionary of Untranslatables is a wonderful addition to my language library... [A] book to savor and think about and to learn in the broader sense of learning. For anyone interested in language, in words, and the scope of meaning that a word can encompass, I recommend the Dictionary of Untranslatables."--Rich Adin, American Editor "[G]reat success... By preserving the specificity of words in their source languages, but then proceeding though so many near-synonyms in other tongues, the Dictionary bridges this ideological divide, providing a different way of understanding what it is to be in, and between, languages."--Tom Bunstead, Independent on Sunday "[Y]ou should equip yourself with this extraordinary book... You could probably, and profitably, spend your life reading this book... The volume offers a detailed and up-to-date map of abstract thinking, from the classical age to now."--Douglas Kerr, South China Morning Post "The Dictionary of Untranslatables, newly translated from the French original, wears its modest megalomania well. An 11-year project involving some 150 contributors and comprising more than 400 entries, the Dictionary suggests comparison with Volume XI of the First Encyclopedia of Tlon, described by Borges as 'a vast and systemic fragment of the entire history of an unknown planet.' The planet in question here is what we usually call 'continental philosophy.'... [A] heady universe of speculative thinking about the meaning of life, the history of ideas, the fate of mankind, and so on... [T]he Dictionary is revealing for the way it sketches, lexically, a set of parallel but alternate intellectual traditions. What language teachers call 'false friends' are everywhere, inspiring a constant alertness to nuance... Scrupulous and difficult, it's everything that the Internet, which wants everything to talk 'frictionlessly' with everything else, is not. No dreams of universal translation here--enjoy the friction. Use it for bibliomancy, the lost art of divination by book (with scripture or Virgil or Homer or Hafiz)."--Ross Perlin, New Inquiry "A vast, lovingly detailed translator's note to western philosophy... This fascinating book belongs to the interesting-in-itself side."--George Miller, Le Monde Diplomatique "[This] is an invaluable reference for students, scholars, and general readers interested in the multilingual lives of some of our most influential words and ideas... It has already provided me with several pleasurable evenings of educational reading adventures, and promises many more for the future. A superb gift for English-speaking writers, linguists, verbivores and linguaphiles."--GrrrlScientist "The Dictionary demonstrates how much vitality and endurance these languages gain from the dialogue they engage in with other world languages--a dialogue structured and catalyzed by relations of power... As the Dictionary of Untranslatables amply documents, the academy's effects on language are every bit as far-reaching as those of colonialism, trade, and pop culture. The etymologies here are at once precise and profligate, proliferating across terms like Abstraction and Acedia, Drive and Disegno, Erscheinung and Essence, Melancholy and Mimesis, Praxis and Pravda... The struggle for clarity appears nowhere in ideal form but is always a thing unfolding in the world, a compound of ideology, politics, oppression, fear, desire--of all that is lost, and found, in translation."--Matthew Battles, Barnes and Noble Review "[A]stonishingly successful ... entertaining and revealing ... strikingly complete and correct... [A] fascinating book... The translation of European 'philosophy' into American 'theory' has probably been the most consequential event in American intellectual life in the last fifty years, but it has entailed a great deal of 'mistranslation.'... The Dictionary of Untranslatables, in addition to its other pleasures, has a great deal to teach American scholars of the humanities about the depth and complexity of the languages and discourses we've picked up only recently--and a few powerful suggestions about what we may find waiting when we choose to turn back to our own."--Michael Kinnucan, Asymptote "Dictionary of Untranslatables is a treasury of linguistic and philosophical paradoxes, both absorbing and diverting."--Alexander Adams, Spiked Review of Books "[T]his erudite volume is indispensable for advanced European philosophy, literature, and translation studies."--Choice "Dictionary of Untranslatables is one of the most solid, wide-ranging, and remarkable books of our time. Very few will ever read it cover to cover, but anyone who dips into it with a little background in the philosophical tradition, and a desire to learn more about what life is actually about, will be rewarded many times over for the effort."--John Toren, Rain Taxi Review of Books "All dictionaries are encyclopedias in disguise. But the Dictionary of Untranslatables is one of the most remarkably discursive works of reference I have encountered... [T]his giant tome, edited by Barbara Cassin, is ... a bonanza for anyone interested in the history of ideas--a kind of miniature Enlightenment."--Henry Hitchings, Wall Street Journal "This astoundingly erudite work instantly asserts itself as one of the high points in European scholarship."--James W. Underhill, Translation Studies "This is an essential volume for every university library."--Michel Petheram, Reference Reviews

Kurzbeschreibung

Characters in some languages, particularly Hebrew and Arabic, may not display properly due to device limitations. Transliterations of terms appear before the representations in foreign characters.

This is an encyclopedic dictionary of close to 400 important philosophical, literary, and political terms and concepts that defy easy--or any--translation from one language and culture to another. Drawn from more than a dozen languages, terms such as Dasein (German), pravda (Russian), saudade (Portuguese), and stato (Italian) are thoroughly examined in all their cross-linguistic and cross-cultural complexities. Spanning the classical, medieval, early modern, modern, and contemporary periods, these are terms that influence thinking across the humanities. The entries, written by more than 150 distinguished scholars, describe the origins and meanings of each term, the history and context of its usage, its translations into other languages, and its use in notable texts. The dictionary also includes essays on the special characteristics of particular languages--English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.


Originally published in French, this one-of-a-kind reference work is now available in English for the first time, with new contributions from Judith Butler, Daniel Heller-Roazen, Ben Kafka, Kevin McLaughlin, Kenneth Reinhard, Stella Sandford, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Jane Tylus, Anthony Vidler, Susan Wolfson, Robert J. C. Young, and many more.The result is an invaluable reference for students, scholars, and general readers interested in the multilingual lives of some of our most influential words and ideas.

Von James Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is an unapologetic scholarly tome. It's fun to read the ideas of real academics writing in the way books were written before the 20 second jottings of the internet. Start anywhere and enjoy thinking about some very interesting ideas. Since it is a real book, I think actually having pages in front of you will suit best. If there is someone who has both the book and the Kindle edition I would like for that person to comment, but I feel that the actual volume is the way to use this book.

HASH(0xa2eae9f0) von 5 Sternen Contempory Summa 15. August 2014
Von martin fritter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Of course, I haven't read the whole thing - has anybody? But it's amazing and challenging. It's hard to believe that a work of such erudition and owlishness could exist, much less be translated. Of the thirty or so entries - some thousands of words long - non has been superficial and all have been surprising.

Von Eric J. Cassell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a wonderful volume--full of great essays about words that are generally problem and often obscure. To those enamored of language for itself as well as philosophers interested in words like mind, soul and many many other problematics it is a very good and unequaled (in a single volume) resource

HASH(0xa2eaeb10) von 5 Sternen Kindle Version Well-Constructed 23. Mai 2014
Von JP - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is just a comment on the quality of the Kindle version. Often books like these, with foreign text and callout boxes, are put together shabbily - but this book displays well on both the PC Kindle reader and Android Kindle apps, and has a fully-functioning table-of-contents and index.

More stars than you make available - the Milky Ways worth.
The svarupa of aporia. Apocalyptic. Discrepancy revealed. Fun.
