I would contend that we will find it, amongst other places, in the numerous occasions where Laclau has recourse to the notion of the ontological difference — in the radical Heideggerian understanding of difference-as-difference, a notion which simultaneouly points at the a-byss of the nonground and thus has to be situated within the wider horizon of current post-foundational thinking.
