“Of the same ontological status as a thermometer”


Robert Pippin’s review Žižek’s Less Than Nothing in Mediations (Fall/Spring 2012-13). I only know saw this – it’s a very interesting read:

“Robert Pippin reviews Slavoj Žižek’s Less than Nothing, a serious attempt to re-actualize Hegel in the light of Lacanian metapsychology. But does Žižek’s attempt to think Hegel with Lacan produce, as Žižek hopes, a political figuration adequate to the present? Or does it land us rather in the Hegelian zoo, along with such well-known specimens as the Beautiful Soul, the Unhappy Consciousness, and The Knight of Virtue?”
