Overview

Medicine, astronomy, dealing with numbers even the cultures of the pre-modern world offer a rich spectrum of scientific texts. But how are they best translated? Is it sufficient to translate the sources into modern scientific language, and thereby, above all, to identify their deficits?

Renowned representatives of various disciplines and traditions present a controversial and constructive discussion of these problems."
