I hope you love Zizek as much as I do. I am beginning to go through his Hegel. I feel so stupid all over again.
I read most of the first part of the book last night. He’s a fascinating figure to me: He combines Lacan and Marx with concrete real-world commonsense, which seems especially radical when he makes these huge surreal imaginative leaps.
Wait until you open the Hegel. He reads Hegel through Lacan and Lacan through Hegel. And all through it he brings in all his “friends” : Marx; Freud; well, just endless. Unbelievable.
Oh and he’s very critical of post modernism. Only one mention of Baudrillard and that’s in just one footnote a sort of tongue in cheek one.
