Recent challenges to the principles of truth and objectivity mark an awareness of a tension between thing and knower which goes back to ancient Greece. In this text, the author argues for a moderate historicism which acknowledges the force of perspective but avoids the evasiveness of postmodernism.

Translating the Literatures of Small European Nations

This book constitutes the most detailed and wide-ranging comparative study to date of how European literatures written in less well known languages try, through translation, to reach the wider world. Through case studies of over thirteen different national contexts as diverse as Bosnian, Catalan, Czech, Dutch, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish and Serbian, it explores patterns and contrasts in approaches to supply-driven translation, cultural diplomacy, institutional support and international gate-keeping, while examining the particular fates of poetry, women's writing and genre fiction, and the opportunities arising from trans-medial circulation, self-translation and translingualism and a more radical critique of power balances in the translation and publishing industries. Its comparative approach challenges both the narratives of uniqueness that arise from discrete national approaches and the narrative of tragic marginalization that prevails in world literary approaches. Instead, it uses an interdisciplinary mix of literary, historical, sociological, gender- and translation-studies approaches to illuminate the often pioneering, innovative thinking and strategies that mark these literatures as they take on the inequalities of globalization.

Attachment Theory and the Psychoanalytic Process

Attachment theory, the brainchild of child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, has begun to have a worldwide impact among clinicians within the last ten years. This interest marks a departure from the early fate of attachment theory. At first shunned by the psychoanalytic community, Bowlby's brilliant and groundbreaking effort to recast basic psychoanalytic concepts within system theories and a new, ethologically based model of the importance of affectional ties across the life span was taken up by a group of gifted developmental researchers. Empirical research not only tested and confirmed many basic propositions of attachment theory, but also extended Attachment theory in unexpected and creative ways. Bowlby was surprised and gratified by this turn of events, but also disappointed that his intended clinical audience has not taken the theory and run with it. This edited book is in part a testament to the fact that clinicians are beginning to do just that; they are taking Attachment theory and research creatively to examine clinical issues. In doing so, new vistas and hypothesis are being put forward showing that Attachment theory is alive and well. In this volume the editors gathered a distinguished group of clinician-scholars from around the world (Argentina, Italy, Mexico, UK, USA and Spain) to examine and extend Bowlby's legacy.The book should be of interest to clinicians regardless of their orientation. Attachment theory cuts across boundaries of clinical modalities-individual, group or family therapy-and orientations-psychoanalytic, cognitive or behavioural. The book should also be of interest to researchers who may find the heuristic value of clinical insights a valuable addition to the legacy of Attachment theory.

The Ambiguities of History

This book argues that history may, by definition, be an imperialist science or a quintessentially Western form ofòdiscourse. Finn Fuglestad thinks there is something profoundly ambiguous about the science or academic discipline we call history. It is the only science that is the product of its own object of study, the past, an object outside of whichòit cannot exist. It is also the only science that can study itself. The author argues that history has a relationshipòwith one of the so-called civilizations of the world that borders on the incestuous. That civilization is WesternòCivilization: history has both emerged from it and helped to shape it in such a way that they are inextricably linked.òHistory, with its Western conceptual framework, has become a defining part of Western Civilization to the extent thatòthe West cannot even conceive of itself being without history. But what happens when history is removed fromòits natural habitat? Can it be done, and has it been done, other than on the terms of the West? The real issue therefore concerns all those societies and peoples outside the West who, in accordance with the Hegelian tradition, have traditionally been labeled as without history. What does it mean exactly not to have history? The reconstruction of the pasts of peoples without history poses a tremendous challenge to the science of history, especially at the conceptual level. Finn Fuglestad not only believes that there has been a failure to confront this challenge properly, but he also questions whether anything can really be done.

The Concept of Objectivity

This book reconsiders the central epistemological problem since Descartes: the relationship of Mind/World. This is done not through the direct examination of rationality but through an analysis of the concept of objectivity. The development of the idea of objective knowledge is traced from the Presocratics to its effective culmination in Renaissance Science. The argument is that history shows that the acceptance of either a foundational or criteriological theory of truth is not a condition for the occurrence of progressive knowledge. The book concludes with the argument that the apparatus for objective judgment might further, with suitable modification, be transferred to problem areas outside of the empirical investigation of the Physical and Social Sciences.
