After defining plasticity when it comes to its lively embodiments, Malabou applies the idea to the paintings of Hegel, Heidegger, Levinas, Levi-Strauss, Freud, and Derrida, recasting their writing as a technique of swap (rather than mediation) among dialectic and deconstruction. Malabou contrasts plasticity opposed to the photograph section of Derrida's paintings and the suggestion of hint in Derrida and Levinas, arguing that plasticity refers to sculptural varieties that accommodate or exhibit a hint. She then expands this research to the nation-states of politics and faith, claiming, opposed to Derrida, that "the occasion" of justice and democracy isn't mounted yet at risk of human action.
