Tarrying with the Negative: Kant, Hegel, and the Critique of Ideology (Post-Contemporary Interventions)
The most sublime image that emerged in the political upheavals of the last years — and
the term “sublime” is to be conceived here in the strictest Kantian sense — was
undoubtedly the unique picture from the time of the violent overthrow of Ceauşsescu in

out, so that instead of the symbol standing for the organizing principle of the national life,
there was nothing but a hole in its center.
