From time to time I will add an English translation of a scholarly article on a subject or by an author of interest to me. The fact that a translation is posted here does not necessarily indicate that I agree with all or, indeed, any of the conclusions reached by the author of the translated article. The translations are unofficial and I welcome any corrections or suggestions for improvement.
