Editorial Reviews


Malabou has provided a tantalizing glimpse of the ways in which philosophy at the dusk of writing must increasingly become our own way to recognize our potentials in an era of plasticity.

(Brenna Bhandar and Jonathan Goldeberg-Hiller Theory and Event 1900-01-00)


(Peter Gratton Symposium 1900-01-00)


Catherine Malabou is one of the leading continental philosophers in the generation to emerge after deconstruction. Putting Derridean deconstruction into dialogue with the two chief models of philosophy that preceded it (Hegelian dialectic and Heideggerian destruction), Plasticity at the Dusk of Writing offers a clear account of the philosophical past in which deconstruction emerged-as well as a programmatic statement of what an attentive observer might see to be the future that could arrive in its twilight.

(Jeffrey Kosky, Washington and Lee University)

Malabou is a member of the Insurrections group that Columbia has enlisted to present a purely leftist interpretation of Hegel; no right-wing allowed. Malabou may be summarized in her final hinged mask of meaning as presenting in an obvious way the two thinkers: Wittgenstein and Moltmann. Those are solid German thinkers and her synthesis of their positions is excellent. She does not credit them by name; the content just reveals the fact. For example her presentation of subjective and objective "tendency" is at the heart of Moltmann's use of Hegel. Her model is decidedly linguistic; but a well-presented one. Also she integrates Hegel's night-like abyss into her "dusk of destruction". There is a balanced psychology here. She likes Freud. You will have to absorb here poetic style (I guess that's leftist too); but it is tolerable after you learn how to filter it out. After all is said and done she does present a SYSTEMATIC MODEL; regardless of her left pluralistic stance. System survives, and I applaud that. Your kindle can be used for research... Buy this inexpensive manuscript, if you are a follower of Hegel and his ontology or psychology.
