Catherine Malabou
(Philosophy, Université Paris, Nanterre)
Plasticity in between Paranoia and Schizophrenia
Keynote for the 6th Annual Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference: Ambivalence
4:45 pm, Curtin 175

Through the concept of plasticity, Catherine Malabou will present a reading of Jakobson's text "Two Aspects of Language and Two Types of Disturbances," insisting on the ambivalence that exists between the two kinds of aphasia distinguished in this text, an ambivalence that corresponds to the relationship between paranoia and schizophrenia. Can we think of a mode of being that would escape these two extremes, interrupt the ambivalence as situating itself in the middle? And would such a mode be a "plastic" one?
