About the Author

Catherine Malabou is Professor of Philosophy at Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy, Kingston University London


"Complex and suggestive Malabou's concept of plasticity hasconsiderable potential to advance our thinking about gender andessentialism." LSEReview of Books "Confronting the current anti-essentialist doxa , Malabouclaims for woman an essence that is never more itself than when itescapes its own clutches. This essentialism is not merely tacticalor pragmatic, it is a bold philosophical position that gives backto feminism its prematurely sacrificed reason to be. A rare book,one of the few in history, in which philosophy rises to thechallenges posed by sexual difference." Professor Joan Copjec, University of Buffalo " Changing Difference will introduce many new readers tothe remarkable work of Catherine Malabou. It extends the profoundphilosophical iconoclasm of her readings of Derrida, Hegel andHeidegger and her emergent thought of plasticity to an encounterwith queer and gender theory on the question of ontological andsexual difference. Yet it is above all a passionate and inspiringmeditation on 'what, for a woman, is the life of aphilosopher'." Professor Howard Caygill, Kingston University London
