Words, words, words

I was reading TNR's lovely takedown of Slavoj Zizek and came across a passage talking of his obsession with Jacques Lacan. I've recently been exposed to a most incomprehensible sample of their thinking in an article (subscribers only, unfortunately. Go to school!) on cannibalism and revenge. I was utterly befuddled by all of its hifalutin talk of the Real and the Symbolic, so I was quite happy to see my opinion validated on Lacan's Wikipedia page.

Hey, Deconstructionist! Deconstruct this!
