Abstract

De Ludo Globi or The Reason of the Sphere is about Gunnar Olsson’s Geography. The argument is that the globe is a map with a different form. The lines of my argument are drawn from Olsson’s two-tiered reason: “firstly, that understanding by definition is an exercise in translation, secondly that every translation involves transition from one language to another” (Olsson 2007: 82). And this paper is exactly an exercise in transition from the language of Geography to the silent language of friendship; but if it is easy “to know the meaning of what I see and hear”, it is difficult “to find the proper expressions of my emotions" (Olsson, 2007)
