I think Zizek is misrepresenting Laclau here, as Laclau expressly denies positive content. In his words, he strictly follows Saussure.

I do find the means by which the two attack each other somewhat interesting though, independent of either means' validity.


I agree with you on the means--I was fascinated by Laclau's use of objet petit a (in the conclusion of the populism book) without drawing on Zizek, in fact by drawing on others and then directly criticizing Zizek.
