Starting with a critical reading of Kant, this chapter goes on to consider Žižek’s philosophy of the sublime. The study of Žižek and sublime miseries grows out of an interpretation and defence of Schopenhauer on the sublime. The chapter also considers Adorno and Lyotard on the sublime. It concludes with a positive assessment of Kristeva’s work on the abject sublime.
