Product Description

Review

The most dangerous philosopher in the West (Adam Kirsch New Republic)

Zizek is a thinker who regards nothing as outside his field: the result is deeply interesting and provocative (Guardian)

The most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in many decades (Terry Eagleton)

Zizek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation (New Yorker)

Never ceases to dazzle (Brian Dillon Daily Telegraph)

Zizek is to today what Jacques Derrida was to the '80s: the thinker of choice for Europe's young intellectual vanguard (Observer)

About the Author

Slavoj Zizek is a Hegelian philosopher, Lacanian psychoanalyst, and political activist. He is international director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities and the author of numerous books on dialectical materialism, critique of ideology and art, including Less Than Nothing, Living in the End Times, First as Tragedy, Then as Farce and, most recently, The Year of Dreaming Dangerously.

His style gets tiresome after a while, but some amusing and incisive examples and analysis along the way.
