No más traducción

A partir de hoy no traduciré más The Culture of Critique. Estoy demasiado ocupado en otros menesteres.

A pesar de ello, debo decir que estas semanas he estado leyendo el primer libro de la trilogía de MacDonald (había comenzado por el último). Me parece un trabajo fundamental: y sería ideal que los hispanohablantes que puedan leer inglés se familiarizaran con la obra del profesor, de la que apenas llegué a traducir el último capítulo del libro final.

¡Que quede al menos como un saborcillo en la boca de lo que sería su obra completa…!

  1. P.P.S.

    Incidentally, above I didn’t mean that I reject the idea that Lenin was a syphilitic psychopath. Not at all: he may well have been one. What I reject is the author’s tacit acceptance of biopsych, especially in the references section, as well as those glib psychiatric labels in the making:

    • “…neuroscience and the study of personality disorders…”
    • “In recent years a category of mental dysfunction has been posited which identifies embitterment caused by perceived personal injustice: Post Traumatic Embitterment Disorder (PTED)”
    • “PTED, which has not yet been listed as a disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, would seem to be an apt description for those lone killers who, for example, undertake multiple killings in revenge for being bullied at High School or dismissed from employment.”
    • “[20] Thomas J Cullen et al, ‘Anomalies of asymmetry of pyramidal cell density and structure in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in schizophrenia’, The British Journal of Psychiatry, No. 188, 2006, pp. 26-31.”
    • “[38] M J S Wong, ‘Review: Posttraumatic Embitterment Disorder: Definition, Evidence, Diagnosis, Treatment’, Hong Kong Journal of Psychiatry, Hong Kong College of Psychiatrists, No. 17, 2007, p. 103.”

    Again, nationalists unfamiliar with the criticism of psychiatry should beware that a great deal of these diagnoses and biomedical claims about real and imaginary mental disorders are not based in science but in politics, what Leifer called “social control through psychiatry.”
