Presence of an Absence

More might come on this later, but this morning I was reading about the idea of the “presence of an absence” (in the Lost Highway section of Pervert in the Pulpit), which the author seemed to attribute to Hegel. I was reminded that this is one of my all-time favorite ideas, right up there with “double reading” and projection. I’m sure there are others. Maybe sometime in the future I can devote an entry to my favorite theories — and even explain what they mean, which I’m not going to do now, either.
