Prof. Catherine Malabou is one of France’s leading philosophers. Her contention that plasticity has become a major category in philosophy, arts, psychology, neurobiology and cell biology has opened up new perspectives on the way in which subjectivity and materiality, mind and body, are interrelated, along with new relationships between philosophy, arts and biology.

Prof. Malabou’s visit coincides with the Belkin Art Gallery’s presentation of The Beautiful Brain: The Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal, a unique collaboration between the Belkin, the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health and the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation.
