[Quick quote] Levinas: Existence and Existents

Now off to bed, long after I should be… The Monstrosity of Christ is very good though. Zizek’s on form (and as repetitive in his sources and anecdotes) as ever. I am still quite impressed with just how he goes through Christianity to get to atheism, with all dialectical guns blazing in the process, even though I’m familiar with the logic of this story already. . . it’s like watching a particularly impressive magic trick again.  Also, seems to be using an awful lot of Chesterton, but to good effect… The comparison of The Man Who Was Thursday with V for Vendetta was especially intriguing.
