Catherine Malabou. The future of Continental philosophy. 2014

source: European Graduate School   2015年1月21日
http://www.egs.edu/ Catherine Malabou, philosopher and writer, presents a critical engagement with a question posed by French philosopher Quentin Meillassoux. Meillassoux proposes in his book, After Finitude, that we must relinquish the transcendental which would also mean a break with Kant. This break, for Malabou, also brings us to a larger question which deals with the future of Continental philosophy. Can we continue to do Continental philosophy, which essentially begins with Kant and therefore hinges on an acceptance of the transcendental; or, if we assent, must we begin to move towards the Analytic tradition? Malabou lays out and critiques the arguments of Meillassoux, shows existing critiques of Kant and the transcendental which have come from the Continental tradition, then reveals how she would answer this question which has been put forward.
