We might assert now that his warning against “rewriting” Being and Time speaks to the foundational limitation Heidegger imposes on any social or political thought – a limitation which returns us to the difference between Žižek’s critique and Jonas’ On Finitude 17 or Habermas’ condemnation of a “formalistic decisionism” in Heidegger. ) to one which, in Žižek’s take, defies description by such categories.
