    Art, Mysticism, and the Other: Kristeva’s Adel and Teresa
    Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 26 (2): 43-55. 2018.
    Kristeva's Teresa My Love concerns the life and thought of a 16th century Spanish mystic, written in the form of a novel. Yet the theme of another kind of foreigner, equally exotic but this time threatening, pops up unexpectedly and disappears several times during the course of the novel. At the very beginning of the story, the 21st century narrator, psychoanalyst Sylvia Leclerque, encounters a young woman in a headscarf, whom Kristeva describes as an IT engineer, who speaks out, explaining that…Read more

    I argue that in Julia Kristeva’s concept of negativity, conceived of as the recuperation, through transformation, of a traumatic remnant of the past, we can find a parallel to what Theodor Adorno, following Walter Benjamin, calls a mimesis that in its emphasis on non-identity is able to remain faithful to the ban on graven images interpreted materialistically rather than theologically. A connection between negativity and the theological ban on images is suggested in Adorno’s claim that a ban on …Read more

    The Figure of (Self-)Sacrifice in Hegel's Naturphilosophie
    Philosophy Today 41 (Supplement): 41-48. 1997.
  • The dissertation analyzes interpretations of the construction of nature and culture in the philosophies of nature of Immanuel Kant, Johann Wilhelm von Goethe, Friedrich Holderlin, Georg W. F. Hegel, and Friedrich Nietzsche. It traces the trajectory of the claim that the human mind can function only by projecting nature to be a series of unities, by making fictions about nature. Both Kant and Nietzsche make this claim, but the implications they draw from it are strikingly divergent. While Kant be…Read more

    Echoes of Beauty: In Memory of Pleshette DeArmitt
    Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 23 (2): 67-75. 2015.
    There is a special poignancy to the fact that Pleshette DeArmitt's essay "Sarah Kofman's Art of Affirmation" foregrounds Freud's essay "On Transience," in which he muses on the fact that beauty seems to be inextricably linked to a fleeting existence. As DeArmitt writes, "beauty, even in full flowering, foreshadows its own demise, causing what Freud describes as 'a foretaste of mourning.'" Such a transience, in Freud's mind, increases rather than decreases the worth of all that is beautiful. In h…Read more

    This essay addresses the implications of German Idealism and Romanticism, and in particular the philosophy of Schelling as it is informed by Kant and Goethe, for contemporary environmental philosophy. Schelling's philosophy posits a nature imbued with freedom which gives rise to human beings, which means that any ethics, insofar as ethics is predicated upon freedom, will be an 'environmental ethic'. At the same time, Schelling's organismic view of nature is distinctive in positing a fundamental …Read more

    Investing in a Third: Colonization, Religious Fundamentalism, and Adolescence
    Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 22 (2): 36-45. 2014.
    In her keynote address to the Kristeva Circle 2014, Julia Kristeva argued that European Humanism dating from the French Revolution paradoxically paved the way for “those who use God for political ends” by promoting a completely and solely secular path to the political. As an unintended result of this movement this path has led, in the late 20 th and early 21 st centuries, to the development of a new form of nihilism that masks itself as revolutionary but in fact is the opposite, in Kristeva’s vi…Read more
