Yesterday I entered a competition held by Verso Books to differentiate between quotes by G. W. F. Hegel and L. Ron Hubbard. The prize was a copy of my former professor Slavoj Žižek’s new book Absolute Recoil: Towards A New Foundation Of Dialectical Materialism. I am quite happy to say that not only did I get a 10/10 on the quiz but I was also chosen to win and thus will be getting the book for free. Needless to say, I’m very excited to read this!
Imagine my pleasant surprise on seeing that the New York Times had published the article
