about object-oriented ontology: “Their world is the world of objects. Subject is just one among objects. […] Massive return to old realist ontology. And for me that’s way too arrogant.”

Slavoj Žižek: “[…]Universalism. How to get a true universality? … Which will not be exclusive.
Okay, my brutal answer, I don’t have time to develop it now, is that every universality is exclusive and that’s what’s good about it.”
