Description

In this provocative book, the author takes a look at the question of human agency in a post modern world. From the sinking of the Titanic to Hitchcock's rear Window, from the operas of Wagner to the science fiction, from the Alien to the Jewish Joke, zizek's acute analyses explores the ideological fantasies of wholeness and exclusion that make up human society.

Linking Philosophical and psychological concepts to social phenomenon such as totalitarianism and racism, this book explores the political fantasies of political control, In doing so the sublime object of Ideology represents a powerful contribution to a psychoanalytical theory of Ideology as well as offering persuasive interpretations of a number of contemporary cultural formations.
