WEFOUNDTranslating Totality in Parts Chengguan's Commentaries and Subcommentaries to the Avatamsaka Sutra


Metaparadigms.  Theoretical frameworks. Conceptual models. Assumptions. Propositions. Concepts. These are all terms that every nursing student needs to understand and apply for nursing theory class. This post will explain what a metaparadigm is, which phenomena define the four nursing metaparadigms, and provide examples of the metaparadigm concepts from selected nursing theorists.

Metaparadigm is defined as :  “a set of concepts and propositions that sets forth the phenomena with which a discipline is concerned. A metaparadigm is the most general statement of a discipline and functions as a framework in which the more restricted structures of conceptual models develop” (Miller-Keane Dictionary, 2003). Another definition is “The concepts that identify the phenomena of central interest to a discipline ; the propositions that describe those concepts and their relationships to each other” (Farlex Dictionary, 2009). It’s a global perspective of the discipline. 

It is widely-acknowledged nowadays that translation is interaction. The key concept here is interaction. I suggest that interaction is a process which takes place not only between participants (the traditional ‘trinity’ in the translation process: author, translator and target reader), but also between the signs which constitute texts and between the participants and those signs.

Ideological nuances, cultural predispositions and so on in the source text have to be relayed as closely as possible. To achieve that end, accommodation must, more often than not, be adopted. In this case, it is accommodation in writing style, more accurately, in rewriting style.

Philosophically arguing, I believe content and style formulate a whole that can not be neatly separated. Any content is expressed in a specific style. Yet when comparison and contrast is carried out, certain nuances are found to exit  uniquely among a group of writers, between different genres and within a certain historical period.

The drink, Ketone Ester claims to produce the same effects as putting your body into ketosis - a process where your body burns stored fats instead of glucose.

Geoff Woo, cofounder and CEO of HVMN explained to Business Insider: "It's not a fat, it's not a protein, it's not a carb, but your body gets fuel from it.”

Lead researcher for the project, Brianna Stubbs, has a PhD around the science of ketones and two gold medals from the 2013 and 2016 World Rowing Championships.
