Cognition and Hermeneutics: Convergences in the Study of Translation

It has recently become more apparent that there are strong commonalities and convergences between cognitive and hermeneutic approaches to translation studies, especially as the cognitive approach has turned more and more towards affect theory and the question of kinaesthetics, and as hermeneutic research has increasingly undertaken research into the actual processes of interpretation. This volume is accordingly devoted to an enquiry into the relationships that can be established between these two research fields.
