5.0 out of 5 stars A theory of ideology after the so called end of history, 18 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sublime Object of Ideology (Phronesis) (Paperback)
This is one of Zizek's most systematic works in which he uses the lacanian categories in the philosophical and political analysis. The main development is through the concept of 'fantasy' which will be crucial in his understanding of the fundamental mechanism of ideology. He aims to understand contemporary ideological phenomena such as cynicism, the fragil status of democracy or totalitarianism according to his well-earned reputation as a searing social critic. He links the lacanian real on the one hand with Hegel and on the other with Hichcock and Woody Allen. The book calls for the participation of the reader which makes it very dynamic. No previous reading of Lacan is required since the book contains a brief exposition of the concepts deployed. The antagonisms around which identities are considered establish the bases for a theory of the subject. For those interested in the most recent elaborations of pos-structuralist readings it is no doubt, a must.
