Product description

Review

It is easy to write a deep book on a big crucial concept like anxiety love or evil but it takes a true master to do for awkwardness what Heidegger in his Sein und Zeit did for anxiety and this is what Kotsko does. In his book which combines philosophical stringency with references to popular culture awkwardness is elevated into a universal singularity: a prismatic knot in which our entire historical moment is reflected. If this will not become an instant classic then we really live in awkward times. --(Slavoj Zizek, Slovenian continental philosopher & Professor at the European Graduate School)

About the Author

Adam Kotsko holds a PhD from the Chicago Theological Seminary. He is the author of Zizek and Theology and blogs at The Weblog and An und fur sich.
