The book attempts to re-introduce the ostracized names and/or realities of the “One,” the “Real” or the “Universal” into the contemporary feminist discourses on subjectivity, to claim their “rehabilitation” without severing its constitutive links with the legacy of the poststructuralist feminist theory and also without regressing into the metaphysical dream of ontological certainty.

Chapter 2: The Real and the Fiction

Chapter 3: The Limit and the Limitless

Chapter 4: The Real Transcending Itself (Through Love): Radical Solitude in the Heart of Love

When we relate love to jealousy and jealousy to love, we should be aware that there is a constant wish, or even desire, to “save” love from jealousy. Moreover, that the notion of jealousy has negative connotations: that jealousy is something that can wound the other; that jealousy is something one should be ashamed of (perhaps, being aggressive); that jealousy is something one should be fearful of (perhaps, being excluded); and what I consider as the most important – that because of jealousy one might suffer from being subject/ed to a kind of affection that is considered as “craziness,” but not any kind of craziness – the “craziness” that is at the same time craziness and banality. Being common. Being a common being.

The book brings back the interest in the “radical concepts” in politics to the intellectual debate after 6 years. Kolozova builds on the hybridization of the epistemic stance of “radical concepts” inspired by Laruelle'`s “non-philosophy” and “non-Marxism” as well as the “realism” inspired by Zizek and Badiou. Kolozova explores these terms through the lenses of Judith Butler`s politics of grief and “identification with the suffering itself.” Radical concepts, the political vision and the theory based on them, are always already succumbing to the "Lived" (Laruelle), to the singularity of the Event (Badiou), to the encounter with the "kernel of the Real" (Zizek) conditioning a political horizon and the grand and small political narratives taking place within it. The thesis of the book is that the instances of the "lived," the "event" or the "Real" can be inherently inter-connected by virtue of the category of the "experience" which is an instance of the sheer lived, the bare being subjected to an occurrence which is always already an instance of trauma.
