‘ … the moral Law does not tell me what my duty is, it merely tells me that I should accomplish my duty. That is to say, it is not possible to derive the concrete norms I have to follow in my specific situation from the moral Law itself – which means that the subject himself has to assume the responsiblilty of “translating” the abstract injunction of the moral Law into a series of concrete obligations.’

– Slavoj Žižek, The Plague of Fantasies, 1997, p 221.
