  4. Rebecca Comay (2008). Missed Revolutions: Translation, Transmission, Trauma. Idealistic Studies 38 (1/2):23-40.

Germany thus sets out to quarantine the political threat of revolution while siphoning off and absorbing the revolution’s intensity and energy for thinking as such. The essay holds that this structure corresponds to the psychoanalytic logic of trauma: (...)

Heidegger displays an acute self-consciousness concerning such aporias of "overcoming." ;This thesis inscribes the Heideggerean project within the horizon of (...)
