  1. 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.

  2. 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.
