Philosophers, scholars and translators have commented on the translation of philosophical discourses. 24 Philosophy and Translation 25 Since authority would seem to flow more from philosophy to translation studies than the other way around, the political relations are very different in each of the above cases. Here we shall thus consider their evolutions independently, even though, in history, they operate side by side within the general epistemologies of the humanities. Translation as an Example for Philosophy Western philosophy has no traditional discourse on translation.
That loss of faith left a gap, allowing for a return to fundamental ethical issues, this time based on the texture of human relationships rather than on any empiricism of performance. Not gratuitously, this return to ethics has accompanied greater attention to dialogue interpreting, where more importance is intuitively given to people rather than to texts (see Pym, 2001). If there is a particular way of using philosophical discourse at this level, it is frequently not for isolated problem solving.
These chains allow concepts to be borrowed and thus constantly displaced. They also allow authority to be projected back onto the discipline referred to, such that authority itself is also constantly displaced across our disciplines. This frame enables us to idealise Western philosophy as a set of discourses that do not ostensibly borrow authority from external disciplines. It is, if you will, a place where terms and concepts would be elaborated and refined for use in other disciplines; it might supremely act in the service of others.
