    On the three forms of sublimation:

    X.1 "In the same way that in art there is a repression of the Thing, and in religion there is probably a displacement, it is strictly speaking repudiation that is involved in the discourse of science. The discourse of science repudiates the presence of the Thing insofar as from its point of view the ideal of absolute knowledge is glimpsed, that is, something that posits the Thing while it pays no attention to it. As everyone knows, this point of view has historically proved in the end to be a failure."

    Or, in other words, 'science is the knowledge of dead Things' - yippee

      Unrelated but Heidegger says in What's Metaphysics that "Philosophy can never be measured by the standard of the idea of science". On nom nom nom
