Synopsis

The feature which distinguishes the great works of materialist thought, from Lucretius's "De Rerum Natura" through "Das Capital" to the writings of Lacan, is their unfinished character: again and again they tackle their chosen problem. Schelling's "Weltalter" drafts belong to this same series, with their repeated attempt at the formulation of the "beginning of the world", of the passage from the pre-symbolic pulsation of the "real" to the universe of logos. F.W.J. Schelling, the German idealist who for too long dwelled in the shadow of Kant and Hegel, was the first to formulate the post-idealist motifs of finitude, contingency and temporality. His unique work announces Marx's critique of speculative idealism, as well as the properly Freudian notion of drive, of a blind compulsion to repeat that which can never be sublated in the ideal medium of language. This work begins with a detailed examination of the two works in which Schelling's speculative audacity reached its peak: his essay on human freedom and his drafts on the "Ages of the World".

After reconstituting their lines of argumentation, Slavoj Zizek confronts Schelling with Hegel, and concludes by throwing a Schellingian light on some "related matters": the consequences of the computerization of daily life for sexual experience; cynicism as today's predominant form of ideology; and the epistemological deadlocks of quantum physics. Although the book contains many examples from politics and popular culture - very much Zizek's style - from "Speed" and "Groundhog Day" to "Forrest Gump", it signals a major shift towards a systematic concern with the basic questions of philosophy and the roots of the crisis of our late-capitalist universe, centred around the enigma of modern subjectivity. Slavoj Zizek is the author of "The Sublime Object of Ideology", "For They Know Not What They Do", "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Lacan (But Were Afraid to Ask Hitchcock)", "Enjoy Your Symptom!" and "The Metastases of Enjoyment".
