It is the concern of this paper to present three important associations that indicate the coupling of trauma and abyss for ?i?ek’s idea of Überwindung or overcoming. Its fundamental function, following Nietzsche, is to posit a radical or paradoxical task of thinking. It should be noted that the understanding of these associations works not entirely the same as parallels of one grand constitution in the end. Rather, the associations are routes, short-circuits, and therefore merely entry-exit points with necessarily no connection from the start but may start to assemble themselves afterward to retroactively energize the paradox of thinking. The three association points are the following: first and foremost, on the unclear pathway relationship of trauma and abyss from sporadic vantage points; second, on matters of belief and ?i?ek’s own critique of morality; and lastly, the constitution of freedom which is an essential element of overcoming.
