The many paradoxical 'definitions' of the Real, often quite reminisent of the contraditictory ways of designating God in Pseudo-Dionysius's Divine Names,are so many ways to try to get at the idea of a fundamental self-contradiction at the very heart of existence
The contradictory nature of the Real's relationship to the symbolic order is perhaps the most revealing 'definition' in this context
On the one hand, the Real represents the evasive remainder that the symbolic order can never
'catch'and contain in its attempt to ground the social reality in the Real - it's what the symbolic
somehow never manages to reach
On the other hands, the Real is the fundarmental contradiction at the heart symbolic order, actively undermining it - the problem is not that we can't reach it,but that it's all
The ideological fantasy that underlies our social reality is a necessarily failed attempt
simultaneously to contain and to evade the traumatic antagonism of the Real.
지젝과 신학이라는 책중 ideology critique 에 나오는 부분인데
여기서 헤겔의 변증법적 사유의 방법을 설명하면서 디오니소스의 이야기를 인용하네요
디오니소스 이야기를 모르고 영어실력이 안되니 혼자서 개념해석이 안되요 흑...
이럴땐 학교 때 단어외우기 싫고 재미없어서 영어공부를 멀리했던 것이 두고두고 후회스럽습니다
