 1.  Interrogating the Real

Zizek, Slavoj, and Butler, Rex (Editor), and Stephens, Scott (Editor) Continuum 2006 826489737 Trade paperback


Interrogating the Real is the first volume of the collected writings of Slavoj i ek-undoubtedly one of the world's leading contemporary cultural commentators, and one of the most inspiring, provocative and entertaining cultural critics at work today. Drawing upon the full range of his prolific output, the articles here cover psychoanalysis, philosophy and popular culture, reflecting the remarkable breadth and depth of i ek's interest in politics, culture and philosophy, and also showcasing his entertaining style. A full and clear sense of i ekian philosophy emerges, derived from Hegelian dialectics, Marxist politics and Lacanian psychoanalysis. At the same time, i ek s witty and accessible approach to his subject and his choice of exemplars from pop culture ensure that this is a consistently fresh and surprising body of work. The book includes a new preface by i ek himself, as well as an introduction by the editors and a helpful glossary for those coming to i ek s work for the first time.

 2.  Living in the End Times

Zizek, Slavoj 1844677028 / 9781844677023 Paperback

Brand New! 

Zizek analyzes the end of the world at the hands of the “four riders of the apocalypse.” There should no longer be any doubt: global capitalism is fast approaching its terminal crisis. Slavoj Žižek has identified the four horsemen of this coming apocalypse: the worldwide ecological crisis; imbalances within the economic system; the biogenetic revolution; and exploding social divisions and ruptures. But, he asks, if the end of capitalism seems to many like the end of the world, how is it possible for Western society to face up to the end times? In a major new analysis of our global situation, Žižek argues that our collective responses to economic Armageddon correspond to the stages of grief: ideological denial, explosions of anger and attempts at bargaining, followed by depression and withdrawal. For this edition, Žižek has written a long afterword that leaves almost no subject untouched, from WikiLeaks to the nature of the Chinese Communist Party.
