9786068266572: Schleiermacher s Icoses. Social Ecologies of the Different Methods of Translating

Schleiermacher s Icoses is the first book-length study of the 1813 Academy address Ueber die verschiedenen Methodes des Uebersetzens ; in addition to celebrating its 200 years of influence, the book undertakes a comprehensive examination of the whole argument, from its theory of hermeneutics to its foreignizing theory of translation and all the passing poetic elements on which Schleiermacher s rhetoric always so heavily relied. The icoses in the title are specifically an articulation of the Gefühle/feelings that lie at the heart of Schleiermacher s hermeneutics specifically, his insistence that feelings are shaped by society, and so seem objective or universal, but are experienced inwardly by each individual, so that they seem subjective and private. Research-based feeling one s way into an author is guided by culture, and is therefore not, pace certain twentieth-century hermeneutical philosophers, mystical but icotic.
