      Whether the theory says that the sun revolves around the earth, or the other
      way around, makes not one iota of difference to me. What makes a difference
      to me is when people try and kill me with or because of their theories.

      Or maybe I was drunk as a newt? Either way, foreclosure and being pissed are
      real enough, no theory required.

        Jim,

        As I wade through Zizek's How To Read Lacan, I also find this piece helpful. I realize it's a backward process to read Hegel, Lacan, and Marx through Zizek, but it's where I am. Here's another link for you.

        http://www.lacan.com/zizekchro1.htm

        I'm discovering a rich philosophical history behind socialism and delighted to regard Zizek as 'continuing' the work of Sartre.
