Translation of Gadamer’s Dialogue about Tennis

Back in the mid-1960s, Gadamer put together a little tribute to the Heidelberg Tennis Club, of which he was a member, and, I believe, some of his family still belong to the club. The original tribute, an homage to Plato’s dialogues, appeared in print in 1965, and now the editors of the Blog of the American Philosophical Association have been kind enough to publish my English translation of the dialogue.

A Gift of Translation

Joe Paul Kroll is offering up translations of Hans Blumenberg’s works at another blog. ¬†Translators are generally underappreciated, and here we have a translator who is not complaining, but offering up his labor to the public. ¬†
