“narratives are always retroactive reconstructions for which we are in a way responsible; they are never simple given facts: we can never refer to them as a found condition, context, or presupposition of our activity.” – “Precisely as presuppositions, such narratives are always-already ‘posited’ by us. Tradition is tradition insofar as we constitute it as such. … whatever we do, we always situate it in a larger symbolic context which is charged with conferring meaning upon our acts.” via lacanians – Slavoj Zizek
