HOT OFF THE PRESSES

God has a good deal to answer for.  Witness Genesis Chapter 11, verses 1-9, which, to those of you who are not regular visitors to the Good Book, records the story of the Tower of Babel and the consequent multiplication of languages.  To someone like myself who is, as we say delicately, linguistically challenged, this and not the earlier story of the expulsion from the Garden of Eden is the true Divine Curse under which we all labor to this day.

A few moments ago, there was a knock on my door.  It was Norbert, our mailman, asking me to sign for a package from Turkey.  Inside were three copies of the newly published translation of A Critique of Pure Tolerance, the little collection of essays that Herbert Marcuse, Barrington Moore, Jr., and I brought out forty-nine years ago with Beacon Press. 

My contribution to the volume is entitled Hoşgörünün Őtesinde.  Is there anyone within cyber-earshot of this blog who can tell me whether that is indeed a plausible translation of "Beyond Tolerance"?

Seems like a plausible translation to me.
