    I read this because a friend mentioned Malabou as a French philosopher who criticized at least in private the absurdities of 'Speculative Realism' So I was well disposed What I found was sadly an archetypal work of contemporary continental philosophy which does not state why we should care about the project ie think about destructive plasticity does not state what the project entails or how it came about does not so much work on the project as state over and over again that the project is necessary approaches the failure to work on the project by looking at a wide range of disciplines and text and studies many of which are interesting but shed no light on the project sheds no light on aforementioned disciplines texts and studies is uncannily hip Proust; Duras; neuroscience; Kafka On the other hand Malabou's writing is clear and I'm completely convinced that theorists have ignored the painful and harmful conseuences of identity fluidity for you know actual people Of course she can't come out and say it's okay for people to have fixed conservative identities because well contemporary continental philosophy And she can't say there is an essence to your identity because Hume So some space was created here for interesting thinking What did not happen?

    I'm unsure why this book is rated so highly I'd maybe say a solid 25? Her thesis is interesting that nobody has really looked into the idea of what she terms destructive plasticity but she doesn't actually look too deeply into what it is She references some interesting neuroscience studies and her discussions of Freud and Spinoza were also thought provoking I felt that her chapter's on Proust and Duras fell flat She has a clear idea of what she's talking about and she also seems to have case histories on it but the book is really just her stating that nobody has traversed the depths of destructive plasticity

    It is an interesting book and its main concept destructive plasticity fits well into what can be regarded as the main current of contemporary philosophy ontology It is a beautifully written essay without a doubt but it has some problems on philosophical argumentative levelEssay is uite heterogeneous and it develops around the few topics which are not necessary in conosonance with each oher a In introduction and in the first chapter Malabou introduces the concept of destructive plasticity and links it specifically to cerebral injuries It is neurological rather than psychoanalytical look on the trauma Her prime example is Alzheimer disease b Malabou attempts to present destructive plasticity as something that can help us to understand traumas in our contemporary culture She talks aobout many kinds of accidents which can work as a trigger to negative plasticity from political isolation and natural catastrophies to car accidents She also links it with feelings of desolation and indifference c She discusses few examples from literature Kafka's Metamorphosis is only mentioned in the passing Passage uoted from In Search of Lost Time is interesting but again it's only one scene She also utoes much of the ending from Mann's Buddenbrooks but her interpretation feels flat She definitely pays biggest attention to novels from Margarete Duras and her interpretation includes some interesting observations on Duras' style of writing d Mainly through literary examples Malabou tries to broaden the scope of destructive plasticity She definies it as accidental but not eventful and opposes it to deleuzian becoming She tries to find the work of negative plasticity in senility and death She says that although becoming old is a process it always includes that decisive moment of break which erases all posiblities of return It is unexampled eventfulness in which one becomes other to what one was it's entire life Destructive plasticity is interesting concept and Malabou encloses variety of examples clinical and fictional but ontology of destructive plasticity which is in the title of the essay is something that still remains to be done

    A slightly dyspeptic but nevertheless very stimulating foray into the philosophical 'dark side' insight into the story of Daphne and Phoebus Kafka's Metamorphosis Spinoza neurobiology Freud's death drive and the all power of the accident's efficacy in changing being Weighty but important this book delights and instructs two worthwhile ends


  7. says:

    A small book but dense Oh boy I was very glad I read the summary chapter on Malabou's work in Ian James' The New French Philosophy so I had some context but the book itself is fascinating and excellent I'm looking forward to reading of her work


  8. says:

    Although the book adds the interesting notion of negative plasticity and starts on an interesting note discussing Metamorphosis it falls flat in making a clear point and only scratches the surface of the contribution the many scientists and philosophers mentioned can add to this discussion The book is focused on empiricist science and misses the philosophical discussion about the meaning of plasticity and specifically negative plasticity and its implications

    Sufficiently interesting essay on destructive plasticity Along the way the author wrestles with the likes of Damasio Spinoza Kafka and Freud

    Promising but then it tapers and draws its case studies from fiction which seems to me unreliable The translator insists on cut and dry Sigh
