Recently, I`ve stumbled upon an opinion by Slavoy Zizek, that contained a sentence that puzzled me. The sentence was the following:
"Our fundamental delusion today is not believing in what is only a fiction, to take fictions too seriously – on the contrary, it is not taking fictions seriously enough."
The part that confuses me is: "...not believing in what is only a fiction..." Why is the word order like this? Shouldn`t it be: "...not believing in what a fiction only is...." ?
Thanks for advance for all your feedback
