Steiner, After Babel, Aspects of Language and Translation

Equivalence has remained a central problem for Translation Studies from before its scientific era. We may easily ascertain this by quickly glancing at two theoretical testimonies of scholars who have reviewed the various theories of translation: Antony Pym dedicates the first two chapters of his Exploring Translations Theories , pp. In a similar manner, Edwin Gentzler, in the penultimate chapter of his Contemporary Translation Theories 2nd rev. Speakers—fully conscious subjects, and in full access and control of their mental contents—manipulate linguistic signs, the meaning of which is pre-determined by their relation to external referents external to both signs and subject , and which help them refer to what they see, mentally manipulate what they do not see, and even make up what does not exist. Natural languages thus gain form and function by allowing a knowing subject to, more than speak of things, know them, while thoroughly and consciously working out their expressive potential in order to control their ambiguities and have them reach zones which their current shape cannot encompass. The above briefly sketches the theoretical framework problematized by deconstruction.

Access options available:. Discussed by Christopher Norris The critical reception of After Babel, since its publication more than a year ago, provides another chapter in the history of closedshop academic attitudes which Steiner sets out to challenge. The book has received remarkably little attention from the linguists, philosophers and cultural historians—the community, in short, of which Steiner himself is part and whose concerns he also deeply questions. One reason for this lack of attention is doubtless the academic narrowness which regards such mixing of disciplines as a kind of professional affront. Another is probably the feeling induced by Steiner's immoderate show of learning, the feeling that one man could not possibly have read so much, or could only have covered it by hunting selectively through footnotes and abstracts.
