ISBN-13: 9780674046061, 978-0674046061. 'There is no world of thought that is not a world of language', Walter Benjamin remarked, 'and one only sees in the world what is preconditioned by language'. The '-ability' (-barkeit, in German) of concepts and literary forms traverses the whole of Benjamin's oeuvre, from 'impartibility' and 'criticizability' through the well-known formulations of 'citability', 'translatability', and, most famously, the 'reproducibility' of "The Work of Art in the Age of Its Technological Reproducibility".
