At long last there comes Malabou. If it takes a term like "plasticity" to provide a context of dynamic forming and formation so that Hegel can be articulated, read, in the full-fledged mobility his work evokes, then so be it.
I found the section on God perplexing, but I never got that idea anyway. But I found the section on reading to be moving and poignant. When I read great philosophy, like that of Hegel, I feel things move in my mind and soul. I feel literal currents of energy reshaping what I had previously taken as settled. Malabou describes this process as reading Hegel, so perfectly and precisely, and so personally. That is great philosophical writing. The book became a friend in the process.
This is no beginners book on Hegel, but it is a perfect third or fourth book, to get reading Hegel on the right footing, once some of the terms and concerns of dialectical thinking have become somewhat familiar. Then one can begin the great dance Malabou sets afoot, and Hegel is properly the maestro whose beat we step with, into the future that we have to become.
