Philosophy and Translation

Call for Publications

Theme: Philosophy and Translation
Publication: Tetsugaku: International Journal of the Philosophical
Association of Japan
Date: Vol. 2 (2018)
Deadline: 30.9.2017

Tetsugaku, the International e-Journal of the Philosophical
Association of Japan, calls for papers for the special issue,
“Philosophy and translation” (Vol. 2, 2018).

The history of philosophy, East and West, is inseparable from
questions of translation. The issues of translation range from its
literal, conventional sense of interlinguistic conversion, to a much
broader, cross-cultural and intracultural endeavour. Translation can
also function between academic disciplines. Across this broad range,
the scope of translation opens diverse paths in the crossing of
borders. Translation can be seen as a window through which to
reconsider the task of philosophy today. We can also use different
prepositions to mark different aspects of the juncture between
philosophy and translation: philosophy of translation, philosophy in
translation, philosophy as translation.

Philosophical papers reflecting on translation in relation to the
following sub-themes are welcome:

- Historical examination of philosophy and translation
- Linguistic analysis of translation
- Translation in relation to particular philosophical approaches
 (analytical, continental, pragmatist, etc.)
- Translation as an intralinguistic issue (translation as internal to
 the nature of language)
- Translation and the substance of comparative philosophy
- Translation as related to cross-cultural communication
- Philosophy, translation and human transformation
- Translation and the crossing of philosophical divides (for example,
 the continental and the analytical)
- Political implications of philosophy and translation
- Translation, the internationalization of higher education and the
 role of philosophy

Deadline: 30 September 2017
