Zachary Luke Fraser has made available his draft translation of the first chapter of Alain Badiou and François Balmès Of Ideology for readers of AUFS. He’s making it available in part to give us all a preview of the book’s contents, which will be published in full with re.press as both a print book and as an open access electronic book, but he’s also making the draft available to crowd source your suggestions for anything that looks as if it could be translated differently. For those moments where your help may be welcomed look for text in square brackets. Feel free to leave any comments here and they’ll be forwarded on to Zachery.
Daniel Whistler, co-editor of After the Postsecular and the Postmodern (Amazon: US, UK; Book Depository), has also made available a number his draft translations of Schelling and others on his webpage. You can also find a number of book reviews, unpublished articles (like the relationship of Schelling’s work on Kierkegaard), and his doctoral thesis on Schelling’s symbolic language.
Update: I meant to include a link to these translated excerpts from the work of Mario Tronti (h/t Alberto Toscano), whose work I mentioned in a recent post. In the last comment of that post a commenter points us to yet another translation, this time of Houellebecq’s book on Lovecraft [warning: PDF] by Robin Mackay.
