Product description

Review

Zizek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation.

This is a subtle argument ... Zizek applies it with a broad brush to both contemporary society and popular culture.

Righteously to battle the tsunami of postmodern spiritual mush, i[ek attempts a reconciliation between Marxism and Christianity, eccentrically (against Nietzsche) trying to recuperate St Paul for the radical Christian. Guardian
