    all the way down

    Relativity relativates itself ... so we can't have relativism all the way down.
    Comment
    Ich bin mir relativ unschlüssig, wie das relativ zu verstehen ist.

    Danke für Relativitätstheorien,

    Kürbiss, Wonder whether Peter understood what he was writing :-) Wenn "relativity" is relevated, then by the time you get to the "bottom" it's been watered down. Sprich - bis es unten ankommt, ist es nicht mehr "relativism" - so würde ich es verstehen.

    könnte eine Verständnis- (nicht Übersetzungs-)möglichkeit sein.

    Carly - sometimes I feel tempted to ask him: Understandest thou what thou writest?

    "all the way down" interpretierst du also als "bis es unten (beim Leser???) angekommen ist" ?

    Könnte sein, wenn er die Leser tatsächlich anspricht. Das es eben verwässert wird, je öfter es relativiert wird. And if he wasn't your client, think I would do just that :-)

    Noch ein Beispiel auf Englisch: "Genealogy takes it as axiomatic that everything is interpretation all the way down, or, to put it less figuratively, that cultural practices are instituted historically and are therefore contingent, ungrounded except in terms of other, prior, contingent, historically instituted practices." (Nancy Fraser, Unruly Practices, Cambridge 1989, p. 19)

    oder: ...keinen fortwährenden Relativismus

    Cf the expression "turtles all the way down", which describes the idea that the earth is carried on the back of a turtle, which itself is carried by another turtle, and so on.
