Jeff Malpas is an Australian philosopher, currently Professor of Philosophy at the University of Tasmania in Hobart, Australia. Known for his work across the analytic‚ and continental‚ traditions, Malpas has also been at the forefront of contemporary philosophical research on the concept of place. While Malpas draws on phenomenological and hermeneutic resources, his work in what he has termed ‘philosophical topography’ is also heavily indebted to analytic approaches in philosophy of mind and language. Malpas’s topographical approach has been developed in two volumes, Place and Experience (1999) and Heidegger’s Topology (2006) – the latter providing an analysis of the thought of German philosopher Martin Heidegger that is centred on the ideas of place and ‘topology’ (Heidegger himself talks of his thinking as a ‘topology of being’). Malpas has devoted considerable attention to the idea of the transcendental, particularly as it connects with hermeneutic themes, with special emphasis on notions of ground and limit. He sees the transcendental as providing an important point of connection between philosophers such as Donald Davidson, Hans-Georg Gadamer and Heidegger, while the focus on the transcendental also connects with Malpas’s methodological development of the idea of philosophical topography.
