The idea that knowledge must be founded upon the absence of any reference to an Absolute translates itself today into the veritable disbelief in the possibility of an articulation between knowledge and desire. As a consequence, we witness the disappearance of any form of transmission which could carry forward the word of the New, while we allow ourselves to be seduced by the profitable and abundant word which secretly relies on an ever-growing debt with the present. We are invited, therefore, to engage ourselves in the task of thinking, in a transmissible way, the current impasses of critical thought – to paraphrase Hegel: to conceptualize what ties us to our current predicament not only as objection but also as object.
