Description

Slavoj Žižek’s first book is a provocative and original work looking at the question of human agency in a postmodern world.

From the sinking of the Titanic to Hitchcock’s Rear Window, from the operas of Wagner to science fiction, from Ridley Scott’s Alien to the Jewish joke, Žižek’s acute analyses explore the ideological fantasies of wholeness and exclusion that make up human society. Linking key psychoanalytical and philosophical concepts to social phenomena such as totalitarianism and racism, the book explores the political significance of these fantasies of control.

COMMENTS:

Žižek will entertain and offend, but never bore.
= The Stranger

Žižek leaves no social or natural phenomenon untheorized, and is the master of the counterintuitive observation
= The New Yorker

Discussing Hegel and Lacan is like breathing for Slavoj
= Judith Butler

If Žižek steals some of the postmodernists’ clothes, he has little but contempt for their multiculturalism, anti-universalism, theoretical dandyism and modish obsession with culture
= Terry Eagleton
