In Praise of the Dialectic



I've been tempted to write a post on Dialectics - spurred on somewhat by the K-Punk-Shaviro-Miller contretemps over Zizek, as a defense of the method against variously Deleuzian affirmationism, 'nihilation' and Slavoj Z's increasing tendency to merely use it as a kind of flip diamat alibi for lazy contrarianism - perhaps relating it to the game attempt of the teacher in the film Half Nelson to teach a sort of version of Brecht's Hegel-via-Lao tzu dialectic, and how above all the value of dialectics as a theory of change. I don't think I will though, mainly because this really quite tremendous post from a distinctly on form Antigram on Madchen in Uniform and Half Nelson does this and a great deal more besides.

Go on Owen. I for one would like to see your rehabilitation of the dialectic. As it is a continuing debate concerning 300 and Zizek seems to have sidetracked things. Also, they may listen to you.
Off to the 'innocent fun' of reading RE Howard's Conan.

Hmm...I might work something up eventually: although I warn you, it will involve quoting Lenin.

Oh dear, no Mao then? I'll just have to try write my own (non)-dialectical theory of negativity sans Lenin plus Bataille. Still I'd be interested in the relation of said dialectics to the party-form today, being an "infantile leftist" and proud of it.
