‘The Heidegger Change: On the Fantastic in Philosophy’ by Catherine Malabou


Behind Martin Heidegger’s question of Being lies another one not yet sufficiently addressed in continental philosophy: change. Catherine Malabou, one of France’s most inventive contemporary philosophers, explores this topic in the writings of Heidegger through the themes of metamorphosis, migration, exchange, and modification, finding and articulating a radical theory of ontico-ontological transformability. The Heidegger Change sketches the implications of this theory for a wide range of issues of central concern to the humanities—capitalism, the gift, ethics, suffering, the biological, technology, imagination, and time. Not since the writings of Jacques Derrida has the work of Heidegger been the subject of such inventive interpretation and original theory in its own right.
