First Sentence
The most sublime image that emerged in the political upheavals of the last years-and the term "sublime" is to be conceived here in the strictest Kantian sense-was undoubtedly the unique picture from the time of the violent overthrow of Ceausescu in Romania: the rebels waving the national flag with the red star, the Communist symbol, cut out, so that instead of the symbol standing for the organizing principle of the national life, there was nothing but a hole in its center. Read the first page

A brilliant study on German Idealism and Jacques Lacan March 14 2013
By German Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The title "Tarrying with the negative" refers to a phrase in Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. Hegel's widely acclaimed masterpiece of German Idealism is one of the most difficult texts of the early 19th century (from 1807). Zizek's book is a brilliant synthesis of it and of German Idealism in general. He shows how Hegel recombines insights from Kant's transcendental philosophy to a more radical epistemology that is neither simply in the tradition of anti-realism nor realism. His revisit to German Idealism shows as well how the question of ideology is linked to the dynamics of reason, reason understood here as some kind of looking-glass through which our societies view what they perceive as reality. Zizek also shows how - next to Kant and Hegel - the philosophy of Jacques Lacan has many underestimated "tools" and concepts of interpreting problems of epistemology and cultural theory alike. The book "Tarrying..." is clearly written (what cannot be said always of Zizek's publications). Everybody who is interested in German Idealism and the epistemology of Jacques Lacan's metapsychology will find breath-taking insights he - probably - has not seen before so clearly put into language. Zizek presents insights that a reader rarely finds in "traditional" books on Hegel or German Idealism written by Taylor, Pinkard, Pippin or Brandom. Zizek is really one of his own kind.
