Continental philosophy embraces such movements as phenomenology, hermeneutics, existentialism, structuralism, critical theory, deconstruction developed in continental Europe in the 20th century. It has an impact on a diversity of fields like sociology, political science, literary theory, theology, art history, feminism and a variety of cultural studies. Perhaps the most persistent feature of continental philosophy is a commitment to the questioning of foundations. From phenomenology to deconstruction, one encounters the persuasion that the old foundationalist arguments no longer suffice. Meaning is not some metaphysical essence or substance; it is a task of intersubjective and intertextual relations. Concepts like identity, ideology and power relations are the ones that need sentitiveness. These movements may appear as intervention in translation defined as an action of social communication. The relative interests and positions of the participants play a crucial part in contextualizing the production and reception of translation. Deconstruction is a reading of texts, which makes explicit the contradictions in the text. It is the objective of the study to describe how (source) texts can be read differently based on the fundamental concepts of deconstruction such as genesis, speech/writing and aproretic reading, and to draw conclusions to translation phenomenon. It also stresses out the concept of justified intervention in translation.
