“Materialism as some notion of reality in which one considers only what can be observed, i.e. the structures of the brain and the cognitivist conclusions about these structures is a reductionist and vulgar materialism. Another reductionist materialism is to denounce all religion on the grounds that only science and rational approaches and no consideration of the influence of how true materialism is a materialism without materialism in which substanntial ‘matter disappears in a network of purely formal’ relations and virtual idealism-type relations, Zizek writes.” – http://ift.tt/1TaRyYE
