“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Zizek endorses Harman

Graham has just gone public with Zizek's endorsement of his Meillassoux book—a real corker. It will be interesting to see how this plays out with the Zizekians. As a recovering Zizekian, I suggest:

1) They will be somewhat startled
2) They will move “from one state of certainty to another state of certainty” (as the Vatican put it after Vatican 2)

I've got dibs on someone producing another essay entitled;

"What does it mean to be Hegelian today"

Because it does seem that he needs to answer this question like hmmm every year.
