Repeating Žižek ([sic] Series)

Repeating Žižek bargains a significant engagement with the guidelines and propositions of thinker Slavoj Žižek. frequently subjecting Žižek's paintings to a Žižekian research, this volume's participants give some thought to the chance (or impossibility) of formalizing Žižek's principles into an identifiable philosophical procedure. They research his interpretations of Hegel, Plato, and Lacan, define his debates with Badiou, and overview the results of his research of politics and capitalism upon Marxist idea. different essays specialize in Žižek's method of Christianity and Islam, his "sloppy" approach to studying texts, his relation to present advancements in neurobiology, and his theorization of animals. The ebook ends with an afterword via Žižek within which he analyzes Shakespeare's and Beckett's performs with regards to the topic. The participants don't succeed in a consensus on defining a Žižekian college of philosophy—perhaps his idiosyncratic and sometimes heterogeneous principles easily withstand synthesis—but even of their repetition of Žižek, they bring anything new and vital.Contributors.
