Washing hands as a dialectical process

The coronavirus haunts you as a probability. It infects you as an abstraction, so you have to sublate it.

The dialectical process is like washing your hands. You soap your hands for several seconds to get the virus. Then you rinse your hands to get rid of the virus.

After losing the ordinary life that used to be before the coronavirus outbreak, you suffer a melancholy. This melancholy is like the soaping of your hands. It takes some time. You will ponder over your life for a while.

But you know it’s gone now.

So you will mourn and sublate the deep contemplation over your previous life. This is like rinsing your hands in the river of time. This is needed for your desire to be “free and uninhibited again” [1].

[1] “Authentic Fidelity is the Drive to Mourn”

Žižekian Analysis: Call for Blog Posts

Žižekian Analysis

1) Are you a Žižekian? Do you have fidelity to the Žižek-Event in philosophy?
2) Are you a writer? Do you write about stuff, e.g. products of popular culture?

If both answers are yes, you are invited to contribute to Žižekian Analysis with your blog post.

What do we want?

  • No need to follow Žižek (and his Hegel and his Lacan) literally, it’s sufficient to have fidelity to the Žižek-Event. The author can devise his/her independent line of thought.
  • Texts that are as accessible as Žižek’s texts. A reader of Žižek should be able to follow the text without many problems.
  • Texts that show a writer’s discipline that dialectically synthesizes a sense of purpose with a playful attitude. The text should not consist of random thoughts, but it should also not lack a movement of free association.
  • Texts that analyze fictional worlds, since “truth is structured like a fiction”…

Jineolojî Journal Issue 8/ Call for Articles About Free Co-Life [Sym-biosis]

“One cannot create a balanced friend for a shared life without integrating the free mother-womanhood of natural society with the free conscient womanhood of class society. One cannot manage this association without also re-forming the correlative similar manhood.”

Women and men constitute the principal force of social nature over this earth which is a little spot in the universe. This led us to handle the beings, existences of woman and man separately and together. Of course, the obligation that there are at least two persons for developing socialness necessitates us to also discuss co-life [sym-biosis], the relationality of our existences. It is of vital value that we strain our given mentality structurations on the natures of woman and man, on the interaction of these two natures, on their relations and contradictions, and conduct discussions that don’t fall into dogmas or into the individualism advised by liberalism. Starting from this need, we wanted to meet our readers with a series of texts that focus on women, men and co-lifes.
