Translations of the Implicit

On December 7 Junior Member Jelle Huisman successfully defended his MA thesis, titled “Translations of the Implicit: Tracing How Language Works beyond Gendlin and Derrida.” External examiner Graeme Nicholson, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, says the thesis shows “thorough understanding of many of today’s important philosophers, and a constructive, creative capacity to illuminate a major problem.” Other members of the examining committee included Lambert Zuidervaart (thesis supervisor), Jim Olthuis (internal examiner), and Bob Sweetman (examination chair). Jelle and his family currently reside in the Netherlands, where he is preparing to enter a PhD program in translation studies. Congratulations, Jelle!
