This paper presents a series of arguments of theses regarding the field of translation studies. All theses are intended as a goad to discussion. The theses fall into two sections, which the author has entitled “pluralism” and “anecdotalism,” the former urging an eclectic rather than a narrow or limited, dogmatic or exclusive approach to the field, the latter urging an acceptance and critical transformation of the field’s anecdotal roots rather than the out-and-out rejection of those roots in the name of “system” or “science.”
