This dual unilaterality is placed within a dyadic structure. The new forms of feminist realism and materialism could have significant political ramifications that should be owned by feminist scholars and activists as a way to create new possibilities for an internationalist political language and The new forms of feminist realism and materialism could have significant political ramifications that should be owned by feminist scholars and activists as a way to create new possibilities for an internationalist political language and action that would be geographically, economically and in terms of nation-state politics as varied and as multi-centered as possible.

Such a new universalism must emerge at the economic and academic margins, move concentrically toward the center seeking to provide the grounds for uncompromising comradeship worldwide.

The questions she raises and the aspects of the questions she points out that I have myself failed to address brought me to the realization that maintaining the entire construction The questions she raises and the aspects of the questions she points out that I have myself failed to address brought me to the realization ,aterina maintaining the entire construction of the argument I set out kzterina a task I will never be able to complete, but it is one that I should certainly try to contribute to as much as possible.

My response with regard to our differences will be, therefore, more of a clarification than debate. I do not see my appeal to ” immanence ” and ” physicality ” as a kateriha to a return to animal immediacy or any immediacy for that matter. Quite to the contrary, I attempt to demonstrate in the book that the human animal is an animal of metaphysics—the grounding alienation of the human subject, which includes incorporation of founding trauma is the determination katerins the last instance of the non-human.

Similarly to Haraway’s cyborg, the non-human is a radical construct or a radical dyad composed of activities and products of signification and the real of physicality that is always already effectuated as trauma. Thus, the non-human is a non-philosophical construct. In other words, it is composed with philosophical material but does not produce a coherent philosophical whole. Technology and the animal, the philosophical and the real, the rational and the meaningless are not reconciled dialectically or otherwise in one outcome, one truth, one sense or any sense whatsoever of humanity.


What I call an essentially capitalist and philosophical grounding movement is the second gesture of estrangement—the attempt to reinstitute the human self as pure representation, meaning, a philosophical truth. By contrast, socialist metaphysics is a realist—rather than materialist, as materialism is essentially philosophical—positioning with respect to the founding trauma of alienation that is the irreconcilable dyad of unilaterally co-relating real and signification.

Far from being an animal— and far from the animal being an animal according to the old humanist dream of its purity and. To put it in metaphysical terms, the concept of the real I operate with in the book does not hold the status of substance ousia but rather that of modus tropos.

Thus the real is not the Real or the nameless real. Such real would be a Such real would be a mystification of a nameless substance determining in the last instance any other ” secondary substance. Quite to the contrary, both physical and abstract realities have the status of the real, insofar as they operate as the determining and nonnegotiable limit that conditions the reality of their experience. The monetary reality, for example, is an abstraction but, insofar as it conditions the lives of the human beings in a society, it acts as the real.

The real I operate with in this book refers to the procedure of determination in the last instance used in the very same sense as in my previous works in which I also referred to it as generation of ” radical concepts.

It is a real that can be and must be cloned into a proper name: Radicalization of the transcendental is about arriving at the specific ” clone ” in the Laruellian sense of a concrete reality, by way of removing the layers of philosophy hybridized with the real and arriving at the transcendental or linguistic minimum of naming an instance of the real.

For example, radicalization or arriving at the. Chapter 3 of the second edition of The Lived Revolution: Idenitities Series of Books; more. To always already mime an identity in its fullness is to imply a fundamental disbelief in the possibility of identitary fullness, to express doubt in the possibility for the master-signifier to be katerins by a lived reality, i.

To mime an identity by way of irony and self-irony is to express the sense of failure to achieve a normalized and normalizing identity in its fullness, to express and to affirm the unavoidability of such kaaterina. The thesis of the book is that the instances of the “lived,” the “event” or the “Real” can be inherently inter-connected by virtue of the category of the “experience” which is an instance of the sheer lived, the bare being subjected to an occurrence which is always already an instance of trauma.

The tragic idea of an inherited family guilt, of impossible individuality or rather the impossibility of individual freedom against katerian dictate of Fate, katrina at the heart of the story told in Shadows. Just like any hero of a tragedy who usually pays a certain debt to the chthonic gods, Lazar pays a debt to somebody who comes from the afterlife, from the world beyond, from the world of the dead.
