stating the obvious…
Stating the obvious is what non-academic claim about complete explained academic position that as a compliment for it is obvious that is the nature of the act it looks that way afterwards.
What’s written above is the form in which I tried to remember this particular point. And the form of it reflects the content.
When I was writing my PhD thesis I soon came to understand what it was I wished to make the point.
And when I said that point to other people they agreed.
They certainly thought it was a very obvious point.
I think that’s a common event, that the understandings appear self-evident.
If that is the case then they could be perhaps the most valuable ideas.
For Zizek an event is something that retrospectively rearranges the conditions of its own emergence.
In a sense it comes from nowhere but appears, sensibly, somewhere.
So when ideas are dismissed as obvious it really might be a great compliment.
