Conclusion. Substance and Negativity: The Primacy of Negativity
This book would not have been possible without the incessant inspiration I received from conversations with many colleagues and friends. I
am indebted to, among many others, Andrew Cole, Mirt Komel, Pierre
Macherey, Catherine Malabou, Jamila M. H. Mascat, Robert Pfaller, Slavoj
Žižek, and Alenka Zupančič; to the international community at the former Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, the Netherlands, as well as to
the group of friends of German Idealism gathered at the Aufhebung
Association in Ljubljana, Slovenia; and above all to Mladen Dolar, who
carefully read and generously commented on earlier drafts. I learned a
great deal from all of them. The majority of the research for this project
was funded by University of Ljubljana, for which I am eternally grateful.
And finally, I would like to thank everyone who helped in preparing the
manuscript for publication, to Adrian Johnston, Todd McGowan, and
Slavoj Žižek; and to Nathan MacBrien, who led me through the process
with great kindness and absolute professionalism.
