Consecutive interpreting and its many facets

Alexander Kozin

pp. 1-35

This chapter introduces the problem of consecutive interpreting as the problem of misguided attention and limited methodological applications. The chapter therefore proposes an interdisciplinary study that unites phenomenology and communication studies through a methodological interface, which could allow us to approach consecutive interpreting as a phenomenon in and of itself. With this general objective in mind the chapter opens this study by presenting different facets of interpreting, showing its ambiguous status because of an inner connectedness to translation at large. For that, the chapter offers a large number of examples from philosophy, linguistics, psychology, sociology, literature, and film, as well as from interpersonal and international politics. These examples show both the importance of interpreting and its uniqueness for language, culture, and communication.
