Pym, 1997). Berman could thus construe 'foreignising' as a clearly Germanic tradition, to be opposed to the French tradition of the belles infideles, leaving himself as the privileged point of contact. Berman was nevertheless able to turn his readings into a radical and stimulating project for an ethics of translation, Philosophy and Translation 35 based on the defence of otherness and the critique of ethnocentric textual practices. In the terminological and conceptual rigour of his project, one sees the imprint of Berman's academic training in philosophy.
This can be seen in his polemical retranslations of German philosophical terms from pre-Socratic Greek, in his constant reflections on the differences between languages, and in his insistence that translation ( Ubersetzung) is not just interpretation but also a handing-down, a question of legacy ( Uberlieferung), as key concepts draw on what was hidden in a prestigious anteriority (Heidegger, 1963: 395-396). Translation becomes a way of actually doing philosophy, as carrying on a lost tradition.

The ideas of action theory, however, were by no means the exclusive preserve of this general translation theory. The notion of purpose-based action has had a philosophical language since Kant and is common enough in any sociological approach. It could lead to a focus on purposes, competencies and expertise theory, as it has done in German, but it also has several feet in linguistic pragmatics, deontics, system theory and new methodologies of empirical observation.
