Summary Throughout the eighties I set out to investigate various aspects of the transformations and difficulties of border crossings in numerous essays and reviews. I have gathered, reworked, and updated the results of my rather unsystematic procedures in this volume. What I found, in the most general terms, is that what matters most in the appropriation of a theory from a foreign country is how it fits into an already established constellation in the importing country.
