“Failing to elaborate the object, the voracious subject keeps on demolishing it, only to relapse into the repetitive circle of mere life. Every act of assimilation thus exacerbates the exteriority it wants to cancel: it generates a mere “feeling” of unity (Hegel 1970: §171) that reinforces the melancholic vacancy at its core…Blockage defines every act of digestion, it is curious to encounter this as the figure for absolute knowing.” – Rebecca Comay, “Hegel’s Last Words.” http://ift.tt/1M5TUHz
