  1. Dictionary of untranslatables: a philosophical lexicon.Barbara Cassin, Steven Rendall & Emily S. Apter (eds.) - 2014 - Princeton: Princeton University Press.
    A one-of-a-kind reference to the international vocabulary of the humanities This is an encyclopedic dictionary of close to 400 important philosophical, literary, and political terms and concepts that defy easy—or any—translation from one language and culture to another. Drawn from more than a dozen languages, terms such as Dasein (German), pravda (Russian), saudade (Portuguese), and stato (Italian) are thoroughly examined in all their cross-linguistic and cross-cultural complexities. Spanning the classical, medieval, early modern, modern, and contemporary periods, these are terms that (...)

    La décision du sens: le livre Gamma de la Métaphysique d'Aristote, introduction, texte, traduction et commentaire.Barbara Cassin & Michel Narcy - 1989 - Vrin.
    Nous n'avons pas choisi d'etre aristoteliciens. Nous ne le sommes pas moins que les autres. Le livre Gamma de la Metaphysique accomplit la relegation de la sophistique qui n'a jamais ete achevee par Platon, en instaurant un regime de discours qui fera loi pour toute l'histoire de la metaphysique. Regime que nous appelons semantique, en reference au geste decisif d'Aristote qui fait equivaloir dire et signifier quelque chose. Il faut et il suffit qu'un sophiste lui dise Bonjour! pour qu'Aristote demontre, (...)

  3. Jacques the sophist: Lacan, logos, and psychoanalysis.Barbara Cassin - 2019 - New York: Fordham University Press. Edited by Michael Syrotinski.
    In a highly original rereading of the writings and seminars of Jacques Lacan, together with works of Freud and others, Cassin shows how psychoanalysis, like the sophists, challenges the very foundations of scientific rationality. In taking seriously equivocations, jokes, and unfinishable projects of interpretation, the analyst, like the sophist, allows performance, signifier, and inconsistency to reshape truth.

    Sophistical Practice: Toward a Consistent Relativism.Barbara Cassin - 2014 - Fordham University Press.
    Sophistics is the paradigm of a discourse that does things with words. It is not pure rhetoric, as Plato wants us to believe, but it provides an alternative to the philosophical mainstream. A sophistic history of philosophy questions the orthodox philosophical history of philosophy: that of ontology and truth in itself. In this book, we discover unusual Presocratics, wreaking havoc with the fetish of true and false. Their logoi perform politics and perform reality. Their sophistic practice can shed crucial light (...)

    Translation as Paradigm for Human Sciences.Barbara Cassin - 2016 - Journal of Speculative Philosophy 30 (3):242-266.
    What does metalanguage mean, if not translation?“The language of Europe is translation,” Umberto Eco once said. What if, from a philosophical point of view, as well as from a political point of view, the language of the world, and not only the language of Europe, were translation?My point of departure in and of translation is my recent, still ongoing, experience with the French Vocabulaire européen des philosophies, dictionnaire des intraduisibles,1 as well as its translations into other languages, particularly into English, (...)

    Intraduisible et mondialisation.Barbara Cassin & Michaël Oustinoff - 2007 - Hermes 49:197.
    Barbara Cassin, philosophe et philologue, directrice de recherche au CNRS a, notamment, dirigé le Vocabulaire européen des philosophies. Dictionnaire des intraduisibles . Elle explique, dans cet entretien, que les langues ne sont nullement interchangeables, comme l'a bien montré Humboldt au XIXe siècle : cette analyse s'applique tout autant aujourd'hui, à l'heure d'Internet et de Google. Il est donc aberrant et dangereux de faire du tout-à-l'anglais une panacée, sous prétexte qu'il s'agirait d'une solution à la fois plus simple, plus économique et (...)

    First, I love Greek language, a language which allow me to perceive what a language is, and what translation could mean. Then, I think it is because of Heidegger. At the time, we used to study classical antiquity and the pre-socratics through Heidegger and Nietzsche’s work. My own philosophical question was : « Is it possible to be Presocratic in some other way than the Heideggerian one? » The answer determinated my interest and passion for the sophists. I found it (...)

  9. Who's afraid of the sophists? Against ethical correctness.Barbara Cassin & tr Wolfe, Charles T. - 2000 - Hypatia 15 (4):102-120.
    What is sophistics ? What are the genuine reasons of philosophers'hostility, from Plato and Aristotle to Habermas and Badiou ? This text offers a new definition of sophistics as critique of mainstream ontology and a description of the efficiency of such a critical view, through a comprehensive explanation of the primitive scenery between Parmenides'Poem and Gorgias' Treatise of Non-being, and Aristotle's settlement of the principle of non-contradiction in book Gamma of Metaphysics.

  13. Jacques le Sophiste: Lacan, logos et psychanalyse.Barbara Cassin - 2012 - Paris: EPEL.
    "Le psychanalyste, c'est la présence du sophiste à notre époque, mais avec un autre statut", dit Lacan en 1965. Est-ce cela qui le poussa à consulter Barbara Cassin sur la doxographie? Dans le fil de cette rencontre, les outils de L'helléniste servent à montrer les similitudes entre parole analytique et discours sophistique et selon quelles voies Jacques le Sophiste fait passer du "sens dans le non-sens" (lapsus et mots d'esprit) au "foncier non-sens de tout usage du sens". Aristote est ici (...)

Si chaque langue dessine un monde, qu'est-ce qui se dessine quand on en parle plusieurs? Passer d'une langue à l'autre, en apprenant, en traduisant, c'est s'aventurer dans une autre manière de faire passer le sens. Toutes ces manières, lorsqu'on les frotte les unes aux autres, s'enrichissent : on comprend mieux ce que l'on essaye de (...)

    The Energy of the Untranslatables: Translation as a Paradigm for the Human Sciences.Barbara Cassin - 2015 - Paragraph 38 (2):145-158.
    This article tells the story of a double adventure. Firstly, that of the Vocabulaire européen des philosophies: Dictionnaire des intraduisibles, which was published in 2004 by Editions du Seuil/Le Robert. This was an innovative tool that used the ‘untranslatables’ — defined as ‘not that which is not translated, but that which one never stops translating’ — in order to explore the key symptoms of the differences between languages in the philosophies of Europe. Secondly, that of the translations and transpositions of (...)

    Pre-Socratics and Post-Moderns.Barbara Cassin, Michel Narcy & Alex Ling - 2020 - Journal of Continental Philosophy 1 (2):217-231.
    In this text Cassin and Narcy begin their reassessment of the mode of thought that is sophistry, which has historically functioned as the (negative) “other” of classical philosophy. To this end, the authors first present a close reading of Book Gamma of Aristotle’s Metaphysics, understood as a concerted “strategy against sophism” that, in establishing a logical basis for metaphysics, seeks to relegate the former to the sidelines once and for all. What proves ineliminable in this operation, however, and which “resurfaces (...)

    Que quer dizer: dizer alguma coisa?Barbara Cassin - 1993 - Discurso 20:19-40.
    Este artigo tenta mostrar como o triunfo da ontologia sobre a sofística só é possível no momento em que, com Aristóteles, se rompe o vínculo entre ser e dizer, chave tanto da constituição da ciência do ser em Parmênides quanto da possibilidade de sua refutação pelos argumentos da " logologia" sofística.

    Homonymy and Amphiboly, or Radical Evil in Translation.Barbara Cassin & Alex Ling - forthcoming - Journal of Continental Philosophy.
    By Aristotle’s own admission, homonymy and amphiboly, or syntactic homonymy, are unlikely to be accidental features of the Greek language (nor of any language, nor of language as such), but rather a radical evil that can at best be subdued, through recourse to categories, for example. Or we could choose to follow the sophists and exploit it by aiming at an essentially sonorous consensus. But then such texts would constitute a radical evil for translation.
