Kalima translation project releases new titles
Project unleashes three translated titles of renowned authors and iconic American economist.
The three translated titles
A project that aims to fund the translation, publication, and distribution of writings from other languages into Arabic has released three titles, representatives of the Abu Dhabi-based initiative said.
The Kalima (word) project is organized by Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH), and sponsored by Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.
The three translated titles are:
“The Fundamentals of Language” by Roman Jacobson and Moris Halle:
Possibly no other book had such an impact on the fundamentals that govern language and other human sciences, than the small-sized book by Jacobson and Halle “The Fundamentals of Language”.
Although it contains just two articles, the book is recognized for its intensive language wherein each sentence reveals a potentially evolvable complete project.
Its first chapter remains a wealthy source of theories of phonology and phonemics inventory for linguists and researchers; while the second chapter inspired the Structuralism and Post-structuralism theorists to develop several theses and schools in psychology, rhetoric and literary criticism.
With its small size, “The Fundamentals of Language” provides an exceptionally exciting presentation in a new and courageous attempt to organize the diversity in linguistic phenomena.
“Age of Turbulence” by Alan Greenspan:
Following September 11, Greenspan, then-President of the Federal Reserves Bank for the 14th year, joined a peaceful action group to ensure that the USA would not undergo an economic collapse, which will affect the whole world.
He begins his novel on that morning of September 11, but flashes back to his childhood tracking his journey in life with over 18 years as the president of Federal Reserves Bank (1987 to 2006).
Alan presents his story with a judgmental approach of that part of history that he lived. On the other hand, he aims to have his readers follow his example.
For this end, he provides his readers with the essential dynamics and the conceptual tools that drove his life forward.
He presents the world economy, and unfolds the issues of the economical growth, and examines some facts relevant to each main part and country of the world.
Moreover, he explains where the globalization trend will proceed. A deep insight to life and condensed wisdom, “The Age of Turbulence” represents Greenspan personal and intellectual legacy.
“Clash within Civilizations” by Dieter Senghaas:
Dieter Senghaas is one of the most outstanding German Radicalist theorists with great and worthy-of-reading writings on development, security, and peace.
This book is a major and controversial contribution to key contemporary issues such as multi-culturity, cultural reaction against modernization, culture clash, and potentials of multi-cultural tolerance and dialogue.
Finally, it is a considerable addition to the criticism of core clashes of cultures.
Senghaas explores these issues within non-Western cultures contexts, such as the Chinese political philosophy, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism.
He further studies the possibility of emerging constructive cultural dialogue. His distinctive and radical approach keeps pace with the recent updates, besides it is vital for individuals involved in politics, international relations, social sciences, cultural and development studies, religions and international political economics.
