Here one might return to Walter Benjamin (1923) reflecting on his translations of Baudelaire through the worldview of Kabbalistic tradition (see Steiner, 1975). ). ). ). Most of those enemies are actually quite difficult to find in translation theory, at least in the simplistic terms in which they have been attacked. And none of those binary oppositions is tenable in terms of contemporary philosophical discourse. It is for this reason, we suggest, that few philosophers would entirely identify with everything that translation theorists have done in their name.

Previously undocumented languages also attracted the attention of linguists in the United States, where interest focused on the Native American languages. Rapidly facing extinction, these became the object of study of such linguists as Franz Boas (1858-1942) and Edward Sapir (1884-1939), both born in Europe and trained in neo-grammarian methodology. The observations of Sapir, and in turn Benjamin Whorf (1897-1944), found an expression in what has become known as the Sapir/Whorf hypothesis which, with its emphasis on disparity in world view between speakers of vastly different languages (Whorf, 1956), makes translation a near impossibility in its more extreme, 'stronger' interpretation.

Saussure, for example, could formulate the two-part sign (signifier and signified) only by excluding from his science the difference between spoken and written signifiers.

This was a critique eminently suited to the spirit of May 1968, albeit without expressed political allegiance.
