Brockelman's critique of Žižek departs from this ambivalence - a primary rigidity in Žižek's paintings among a historicist severe idea of techno-capitalism and an anti-historicist idea of progressive swap. as well as clarifying what Žižek has to claim approximately our global and concerning the threat of radical switch in it, Žižek and Heidegger explores a number of the ways that this cut up on the heart of his suggestion looks inside it - in Žižek's perspectives on historical past or at the dating among the innovative chief and the proletariat or among the analyst and the analysand.

196). Without this gesture oddly preserving subjectivity in a wavering halfexistence, we necessarily “revive” God by maintaining the tragedy of existentialism: either God is dead, so that the tragic hero Nietzsche must suffer, or Nietzsche is dead, proving that he was never anything but a speck of dirt, manipulated by the divine consciousness. Whether we tell the story as the death of God or of Nietzsche the tone is Byronic, outsized, tragic. And isn’t this just the symptom that the narrative’s purpose is one of reassurance rather than exploration or challenge?
Fortunately, though, a Žižekian understanding of the dialectical relationship between the two subjects of existential analysis allows us to understand this psychology, while also moving beyond it. Recall that Being and Time introduces the concepts of “care” and “Beingtowards –death” as figures for, more or less, the “uncanniness” of Dasein’s Being – the way that its “existence” is never present-at-hand to it as a mere object for analysis. 9 “Uncanniness” isn’t missing from the first subject, “guilty” Dasein.
In the light of this ambiguity, we might say that, Heidegger, unacknowledged, “changes the subject” of his analysis between the Dasein of experience in general and authentic Dasein – moving from a Romantic, “individuated” self to a chosen, created subjectivity. And, in retrospect, doesn’t Heidegger’s own forced description of the categories in both Chapters 1 and 2 of the second division hint at this shift? Since it is “ready for anxiety,” anticipation is no longer simply anxious Being-towards-death, a state into which Dasein is born.
