Scott McLemee runs an article from a Greek newspaper through Babelfish, one paragraph at a time, and discovers that it essentially paraphrases his “‘The Strange Afterlife of Cornelius Castoriadis‘ — or at least the more conflict-related aspects of that piece. In Greece, you don’t have to tell the reader who Castoriadis was or why anybody would care.”
