Slavoj Zizek Faces Cornel West
" I basically think that Derrida was right there, (Foucault vs Derrida) in detecting a kind of a trans-historical, moment of madness, in the very core of subjectivity and Cartesian cognito himself... "
Christ died alone. There was no resurrection, he did not get up and do the dishes. The 'return of Christ' is an attempt to preempt the returning motif of Christ destroying the idea of god.
" This gap between me and god, is transposed into god himself, .. to rejoin, I identify with Christ who was also abandoned. The very gap that separates me from god (grace) is part of divinity itself... abandonment leads to god"
What a fine trap
