When it first appeared in , After Babel created a sensation, quickly establishing itself as both a controversial and seminal study of literary theory.
I had the greatest pleasure reading this book and I think anybody who is into linguistics, translation and literary theory will respect the authors breadth of knowledge as well as his clear style. Coming from a mostly Chomskyan background I must admit that I find the attacks on Chomsky far too outdated and mostly irrelevant. On the other hand I accept that this book gave me a broader and deeper perspective on translation and subtle. For the long-awaited second edition, Steiner entirely revised the text, added new and expanded notes, and wrote a new preface setting the work in the present context of hermeneutics, poetics, and translation studies. With this provocative thesis he analyzes every aspect of translation from fundamental conditions of interpretation to the most intricate of linguistic constructions.
For many years Steiner, now at the University of Geneva, taught at Cambridge, where science has always played an important role. It was there that I. Richards and others modernized English Studies by emphasizing the vital and intrinsic link between language, psychology and thought, and C. The study of language, as Steiner knows, is a test case for the interaction of the two cultures: it is the only brandi of humanistic learning in which the scientific method seems to have made real headway in the form of structural linguistics, transformational grammar and semiotics. Yet one of the questions raised by Steiner is whether contemporary linguistic science is genuinely humane or potentially dehumanizing. Come, let us go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

To commend it to an ecumenical audience, especially to the theologians and communicators but also to the policy makers present and future, pre- supposes the conviction not only that this is an important and even fundamental book but also that the churches and the ecumenical movement need to take the question of lan- guage and culture far more seriously than they have tended to do in the past. It is only very recently that the World Council of Churches has turned its attention to ecu- menical language policy. The development of the Council from the largely western European, even Anglo-Saxon, body it was in into the worldwide multicultural constituency it is in poses afresh and urgently the problem of which vehicular languages it now needs in order to be an effective communications network serving the whole of its diverse linguistic membership. At the Nairobi Assembly an attempt will be made for the first time to observe and reflect on what really happens language-wise in an ecumenical meeting of this kind. The Assembly will consider the question of its language policy and one of the tasks of the new Central Committee in will be to decide how this policy is to be implemented. This context and timetable make it essential that delegates to Nairobi from all language areas should reflect on the language question in relation to present and future ecumenical life and work. Readers of English, which Barth once called, tongue in cheek, the sacred language of the ecumenical move-, ment, will find in Steiners latest book substantial and exciting insights which can help to ensure that our decisions in this vital field are at once more realistic and more principled.
Убийцы там уже не. Подъехал полицейский на мотоцикле. Женщина, наклонившаяся над умирающим, очевидно, услышала полицейскую сирену: она нервно оглянулась и потянула тучного господина за рукав, как бы торопя. Оба поспешили уйти. Камера снова показала Танкадо, его руку, упавшую на бездыханную грудь. Кольца на пальце уже не. ГЛАВА 118 - Это может служить доказательством, - решительно заявил Фонтейн.
В ней царила полная тишина.
