One of the all time best books I've ever read. Severely underrated. Zizek said he was jealous of it. Best secondary text on Kant's 'Critique of Practical Reason' I've ever read. (Thierry de Deuve's 'Kant after Duchamp' is the best one I've seen on Kant's 'Critique of Judgement') and clearest and most thorough explanation of Lacan's important essay "Kant avec Sade," finally available in English many many years after it's French publication.(Bruce Fink's new complete, unabridged translation of Ecr [...]

Right on Kant, but only partially right on Lacan. Google Mark De Kesel's paper, "There Is No Ethics of the Real."

Het beste werk over Kant en Lacan en de ethiek van psychoanalyse dat ik ooit las. Zupancic slaagt erin om de overeenkomsten tussen Lacan en Kant glashelder te structureren. Fijnzinnig gekaderd in voorbeelden uit literatuur, zoals de onmisbare Sade, Don juan en meer. Duidelijk wordt dat ethiek, verlangen en zuivere doodsdrift quasi synoniemen zijn. Zupancic argumenteert meer dan overtuigend dat ethiek in de kern ligt van het excessieve, van de drift, en niet in het moralisme. Aanrader!

The notoriously difficult Zupančič (an unjustly earned reputation, if you ask me) offers a lucid and engaging reading of Kant in this text with the added bonus of some mediation through Lacan's formulations. Zupančič draws comparisons between the logical maneuverings of Kant and Lacan to make clear the content of Kant's ethics and eventually develop an ethical structure that contains drives in such a way that the notion of ethics does not become absurd or irrelevant. This ethics is beyond po [...]
