Product description


"Zizek is, in fact, the most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in Europe for some decades." Terry Eagleton, University of Oxford <!––end––>

"The Zizek Reader is an excellent introduction to his thinking and contains the first systematic criticism of his work, in editorial introductions to each essay. In his own preface, Zizek makes his gambit explicit by his categorical rejection of the ′hegemonic trends′ of today′s academia." The Independent

From the Publisher

Blackwell Publishers
The Zizek Reader provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to this writer´s work. Zizek has an international reputation and has had a considerable influence on both scholars and students. Divided into three parts, Culture, Women and Philosophy, the Reader not only gives careful explications of the individual extracts within each section but also connects these extracts in a general introduction, mapping the shiftings of Zizek´s thought within the Lacanian framework. The essays on woman offer feminism ammunition from unexpected sources, within a reading of Lacan that goes counter to his ambiguous reception by feminists. The book includes a Foreword by Zizek and a new, previously unpublished essay on cyberspace. Contents : Part I: Culture: 1. The Undergrowth of Enjoyment. 2. The Obscene Object of Postmodernity . 3. The Spectre of Ideology. 4. Fantasy as a Political Category. 5. Is it Possible to Traverse the Fantasy in Cyberspace? Part II: Woman: 6. Otto Weininger, or ´Woman doesn´t Exist´. 7. Courtly Love, or Woman as Thing. 8. There is No Sexual Relationship. 9. Death and the Maiden. Part III: Philosophy: 10. Hegel´s "Logic of Essence" as a Theory of Ideology. 11. Schelling-in-Itself: The Orgasm of Forces. 12. A Hair of the Dog that Bit You. 13. Kant with (or against) Sade. 14. Of Cells and Selves. 15. Bibliography. Index. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
