Manchester: St. Jerome. 2 Philosophical/Theoretical Approaches to Translation Efrain Kristal As Rainer Schulte and John Biguenet have pointed out in the introduction to their landmark anthology Theories of Translation (1992), theoretical reflection on translation has been fruitful but controversial, and we are far from a consensus about its possibilities or impossibilities.

Alluding perhaps to Spinoza’s distinction between a mode and an essential quality (or attribute) of a substance, Benjamin claims that translation is a mode and that “translatability is an essential quality of certain works” ([1923] 2000, 16). For Spinoza the essence of a substance is not affected by the appearance or disappearance of any of its modes, but it would no longer be what it is if it lacked any one of its essential qualities. A chair made of wood may be a modality of wood, but its fibrous elements are essential qualities.

And differences between theoretical approaches to translation amount to different perspectives regarding the differences between the original work and the translation. Some theorists assume that all translation is doomed to failure in principle, others that certain aspects but not all can be rendered with ease. Some assume incompatible views of language, and some give pride of place to the original author, the cultural context of the source or the target language, the translator, the reader who has bilingual competence, the general reader who is ignorant of the target language, a particular audience, or the specialist who claims expertise or institutional authority over a certain body of work.
