Ethical Exchanges in Translation, Adaptation and Dramaturgy examines compelling ethical issues that concern practitioners and scholars in the fields of translation, adaptation and dramaturgy. Its 11 essays, written by academic theorists as well as scholar-practitioners, represent a rich diversity of philosophies and perspectives, and reflect a broad international frame of reference: Asia, Europe, North America, and Australasia. They also traverse a wide range of theatrical forms: classic and contemporary playwrights from Shakespeare to Ibsen, immersive and interactive theatre, verbatim theatre, devised and community theatre, and postdramatic theatre.
In examining the ethics of specific artistic practices, the book highlights the significant continuities between translation, adaptation, and dramaturgy; it considers the ethics of spectatorship; and it identifies the tightly interwoven relationship between ethics and politics.

Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal dedicated to advancing scholarship on themes relevant to Simone de Beauvoir’s legacy, such as gender and sexuality, race and culture, feminism, existentialism, literature, and political activism. Founded in 1983, the journal emphasizes diverse social, cultural, and disciplinary approaches to its topics and promotes international and cross-cultural exchange. SdBS not only publishes articles that directly investigate Beauvoir’s oeuvre, but also those that do not treat her writings per se but nonetheless make a significant contribution to connected discourses. SdBS publishes creative, journalistic, autobiographical, and experimental writing in addition to research, scholarly articles, and book reviews. Articles are published in English and French.

La revue Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) est une publication multidisciplinaire arbitrée par des pairs. Elle se consacre à la recherche traitant de thématiques en lien avec l’héritage de Simone de Beauvoir, telles que les études sur le genre ( gender studies), la sexualité, le féminisme, les rapports interculturels, le postcolonialisme, le militantisme politique, l’existentialisme et la littérature. Fondée en 1983, la revue a pour objectif d’enrichir diverses approches théoriques et de promouvoir les échanges internationaux et transculturels. SdBS publie non seulement des articles qui analysent directement l’œuvre de Beauvoir, mais également des travaux qui, sans aborder ses écrits en tant que tels, apportent néanmoins une contribution significative au dialogue amorcé par ceux-ci. La revue édite des textes autobiographiques, créatifs, essayistiques et journalistiques en plus d’études scientifiques et de recensions critiques. Les articles sont publiés en anglais et en français.

The Role of Transparency in First Personal Knowledge
Self-knowledge and self-deception present fundamental problems and puzzles to philosophy of mind. In this book accounts of both phenomena are systematically developed and defended against classical and recent views. The proposed 'cognitive ascent model' offers an explanation of the intuitive peculiarity of self-knowledge as well as of the reach and limits of our epistemic privilege. The model builds on a general transparency principle for attitudes. Transparency can be the key to a genuinely first-personal knowledge of attitudes to the extent that someone’s having a certain attitude is to be identified with his attributing a value property to an intentional object. The offered view rejects the strategies of inner sense, parallelism and constitutivism. Paradigmatic self-deception, rather than being a failure of recognizing one’s own mental states is a failure at the level of metacognitive control over belief-formation. Self-deceptive beliefs are formed or maintained against criterial evidence via pseudo-rational adaptations in belief-systems.

. For that, cross-cultural adaptations of measurement instruments are indispensable. The Pet Attitude Scale ( PAS ) from Templer, Salter, Baldwin, Dickey, and Veleber (1981) is a scale often used in English-speaking AAI research (e.g., Morgan, 2009) to assess attitude towards companion animals. It has
