This page ebook is a product of Ari Galpers interview with Benjamin J Harvey that covers the 4 main fears people have and how to avoid them. Every goal is always an invention, a subversion of the code: Personally, I believe that although partisans can appreciate the good play, the beauty and the aesthetics of their own team, they are not in a position to sense the same kind of enjoyment coming from the other team. Introducing a recent text he maintains that these three orders symbolic, real and imaginary are knotted together at the level of the social order in the relations between the real of the economy, the imaginary of democratic ideology and the symbolic political hegemony. There are moments during a game that are exclusively poetic and these are the moments when goals are scored. He concludes that the people are incapable of giving such a will to themselves, that they require a legislator to establish laws best suited to the expression of the general will: His writings about the game are in highly original terms especially when he talks about the footballing language.
In many ways football can be seen as some kind of a religion but perhaps the way that passionate fans idolize their favorite players illustrates perfectly what Pasolini was trying to say. His writings about the game are in highly original terms especially when he talks about the footballing language.
According to Pasolini, even in the language of football there are varieties in the genre.
There can be football as prose and as poetry. There are moments during a game that are exclusively poetic and these are the moments when goals are scored. Every goal is always an invention, a subversion of the code: It is a system that require a massive ability to dribble in order to be effective and for this reason, every member of the team can score goals from anywhere.
The dream of every football therefore shared with that of fans is to start dribbling pass the opposing players from the half way line and scoring at the end - if there is something completely sublime in football, it must be this.
On the contrary, for various reasons related to culture and history, the style of football of some countries, like that of Italy and other European countries, can be compared to language in prose. In this system scoring goals is mainly the job of a single player that has poetic attributions but the action of the game is built slowly by a series of geometric passes.
Pasolini however, points out that this distinction is totally based on the style of play and not on which one is better than the other. So in theory, according to Pasolini, the players are the creators of this language and the spectators are the interpreters of this language: Who does not possesses this code can never understand the meaning of its words the passes nor the sense of its speech a set of passes. His passion for football was quite a known fact but his analysis of the game was somehow ignored.
It was only years later when the study of football was taken more seriously that his comments were being analyzed and discussed. Nostalgia and progress are like Jekyll and Hyde: The Future of Nostalgia p. In the last couple of decades, nostalgia has also become a common word in the business arena.
In football every team in the world has had his glory days and during a bad period, it is normal for the fans to feel nostalgic for the past achievements of their respective teams.
Hence, even in this global game, nostalgia is something that is being taken very seriously and this feeling has the power to transform old football places in world heritage sites, some even housing museums.
Another recent famous trend amongst footballers and managers is that of writing autobiographies. Although none of these authors is considered as a writer, their books are usually of huge success all over the world since they also can stimulate that nostalgic feeling in the football-passionate readers. Footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has sold more than , copies of his autobiography in his homeland Sweden alone.
Nostalgia has also become a very common element in football media. In this case by unifying these two elements together, the lower culture football will become part of higher, intellectual cultural form performing arts.
By this mixture, a perfect commercial for such football competitions is created and the main addressee will be the new middle class, that is somewhere in between these two classes. From the viewpoint of the political characterised by contingency, the determining role of class cannot even be viewed.
Yet this is precisely what is required if the act is to traverse the fundamental fantasy, the disavowed of contemporary politics. This is not an act in the sense in which the liberal theorist would characterise the act, as that of a self sufficient subject in possession of its reason.
An act does the impossible within the existing order. Such an act would be psychotic, and would have no bearing on the symbolic order, and could not even be considered an act. Rather, the act proper suspends the symbolic coordinates that determine the subject.
In this sense an act entails self erasure, a radical subjective destitution which installs a new master signifier. As a consequence the act has no guarantee of success: It is in this precise sense that the act is a radical critique of any theory of inter-subjectivity: This notion of the act has echoes in political theory.
He concludes that the people are incapable of giving such a will to themselves, that they require a legislator to establish laws best suited to the expression of the general will: Gods would be needed to give men laws.
In this work of legislation then two impossibilities operate simultaneously: There will be those who have to be forced to be free, because they refuse to recognise the validity of the general will. Rousseau insists without using the same words as Zizek that one can distinguish the good terror from the bad, and by implication the good terror is justified by this act of distinction which marks it as good. The Borrowed Kettle: Like the Lacanian analyst, a political agent has to engage in acts which can be authorised only by themselves, for which there is no external guarantee.
There is a moment of radical indecision and risk which characterises any act. Yet he also argues that the good terror, as opposed to the bad, that which is effectively a misrecognition of antagonism, might sometimes require the exercise of force, indeed of terror, especially when resisting the enemy at his best.
This moment of divinity when the human actor comes into contact with the transcendental, as Zizek argues, can only be deemed an act if it traverses the fundamental fantasy. Otherwise it is mere whim. The analyst avoids all danger of counter transference, and maintains within the space of the analysis an opening, a void, which the analysand must come to terms with.
Yet the psychoanalytic act does not, according to Lacan, include in its agency the presence of the subject. This is the basis of what Zizek terms the act in politics: That is to say: If class is the hidden disavowed structuring principle, the real of the economy which is the inherent impossibility, the stumbling block that renders the symbolic order contingent then the authentic act addresses the void in addressing class.
The psychoanalytic coordinates of the authentic act allow for the identification of false acts: There is a peculiar narcissism at play here. This entails a subjective destitution which means that the subject cannot even evaluate whether or not the act is in line with its basic requirements, noted above. Contrast this with the psychoanalytic act which relies precisely upon an analytic encounter in which the subject of knowledge does not have its imaginary coherence verified by the analyst.
Yet the presence of the other is a crucial component of the analysis, of the passage through the act. Such conditions simply do not apply in relation to the notion of the act defended by Zizek in political terms.
Moreover we have already seen that Zizek, occupying the position of both analyst and activist, has not provided an adequate analysis of capitalism and thus cannot even begin to address the fundamental fantasy, even if it is the disavowed question of class.
Even had he provided such a persuasive account of the real abstraction Capital, which for him is the real of contemporary societies, even had he done so this notion of the act could only ever be an empty fantasy. Let us recall the essential elements of the authentic act. The act is axiomatic and as such foundational.
As in mathematics a questioning of the axioms means that one can no longer play the game. The act establishes a subject of a new knowledge, and is a moment of contact with the noumenal realm. The assumption is that the act responds to the symptomal torsions that cut through the symbolic order, and in addressing the void establishes new rules which change possible relations to that order.
Zizek seems here to suffer a melancholia less sophisticated than that of Adorno but infinitely more dangerous. For Adorno no act simply leaves the object capital behind.
The idealism of the concept which presumes that this is possible without addressing its own implication in the object capital is precisely what capital allows and is already prepared for. And its danger is obvious: David Forgacs, London, Lawrence and Wishart, p. The Borrowed Kettle, London, Verso, p.
