Re: Multi-Translating

I had a philosophy professor who told me that Heidegger’s works were translated into French and then back into German all the time in the hope that a new insight or decipherable sentence might fall out and clank to the floor. I know there are lots of readers out there who quote Heidegger as if Being and Time was a Bazooka Joe comic. But I’ve got to tell you I thought it’s like rolling an egg up the staicase of a skyscraper with your nose.
