It is necessary to think, under the name of the void, the outside-place [utopos] on the basis of which any place — any situation — maintains itself with respect to its being. That the without-place (Άτοπον) signifies the absurd causes one to forget that the point, precisely in not being a place, can mitigate the aporias of the void. Alain Badiou
