Looking awry : an introduction to Jacques Lacan through popular culture by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

48 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sublime object of ideology by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

77 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this provocative and original work, Slavoj Zizek takes a look 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 Alien to the Jewish Joke, the author's acute analyses explore the ideological fantasies of wholeness and exclusion which 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. In so doing, 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. -- Back cover
Violence : six sideways reflections by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

25 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using history, philosophy, books, movies, Lacanian psychiatry, and jokes, Slavoj Zizek examines the ways we perceive and misperceive violence. Drawing from his unique cultural vision, Zizek brings new light to the Paris riots of 2005; he questions the permissiveness of violence in philanthropy; and, in daring terms, he reflects on the powerful image and determination of contemporary terrorists." "Beginning with a series of contemplative questions, Zizek discusses the inherent violence of globalization, capitalism, fundamentalism, and language in a work that will confirm his standing as one of our most erudite and incendiary modern thinkers."--Jacket
Living in the end times by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

37 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There should no longer be any doubt: global capitalism is fast approaching its terminal crisis. Slavoj Zizek 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, Slavok Zizek 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. After passing through this zero-point, we can begin to perceive the crisis as a chance for a new beginning. Or, as Mao Zedong put it, 'There is great disorder under heaven, the situation is excellent.' Slavoj Zizek shows the cultural and political forms of these stages of ideological avoidance and political protest, from New Age obscurantism to violent religious fundamentalism. Concluding with a compelling argument for the return of a Marxian critique of political economy, Zizek also divines the wellsprings of a potentially communist culture -- from literary utopias like Kafka's community of mice to the collective of freak outcasts in the TV series Heroes."--Publisher description
Enjoy your symptom! : Jacques Lacan in Hollywood and out by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

42 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slavoj Zizek, dubbed by the "Village Voice" "the giant of Ljubljana", is back with a new edition of his seriously entertaining book on film, psychoanalysis (and life). His inimitable blend of philosophical and social theory, Lacanian analysis, and outrageous humour are here made to show how Hollywood movies can explain psychoanalysis - and vice versa. Why does the phallus appear? Why is woman a symptom of man? Why are there always two fathers? These typical Zizek questions are explained by means of such films as "Marnie" and "The Man Who Knew Too Much"
In defense of lost causes by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

45 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is global emancipation a lost cause? Are universal values outdated relics of an earlier age? In the postmodern world, ideologies of all kinds have been cast in doubt. In this combative new work, renowned theorist Slavoj Žižek takes on the reigning postmodern agenda with a manifesto for several 'lost causes'
Examined life by Astra Taylor( Visual )

25 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examined Life takes philosophy into the hustle and bustle of the everyday. The "rock star" philosophers of our time take "walks" through places that hold special resonance for them and their ideas. These places include crowded city streets, deserted alleyways, Central Park, and a garbage dump
First as tragedy, then as farce by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Slovenian and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this take-no-prisoners analysis, [the author] frames the moral failures of the modern world in terms of the epoch-making events of the first decade of this century. What he finds is the old one-two punch of history: the jab of tragedy, the righthook of farce. In the attacks of 9/11 and the global credit crunch, liberalism died twice: as a political doctrine and as an economic theory"--Page 4 of cover
Everything you always wanted to know about Lacan : (but were afraid to ask Hitchcock) by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

32 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting from the premise that 'everything has meaning', this title analyzes Hitchcock's films, ranging from "Rear Window" to "Psycho", and their ostensible narrative content and formal procedures to discover a proliferation of ideological and psychic mechanisms at work
The parallax view by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A parallax can be defined as the apparent displacement of an object caused by a change in observational position. Author Slavoj Zizek is interested in the "parallax gap" separating two points between which no synthesis or mediation is possible, linked by an "impossible short circuit" of levels that can never meet. From this consideration of parallax, Zizek begins a rehabilitation of dialectical materialism. The Parallax View not only expands Zizek's Lacanian-Hegelian approach to new domains (notably cognitive brain sciences) but also provides the systematic exposition of the conceptual framework that underlies his entire work."--Jacket
The plague of fantasies by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

48 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this text the author explored the relations between fantasy and ideology, the way in which fantasy animates and structures enjoyment while protecting against its excesses, the associations of the motions of fetishism with fantasmic seduction, and the ways in which digitalization and cyberspace affect the status of subjectivity
The puppet and the dwarf : the perverse core of Christianity by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Puppet and the Dwarf Slavoj Zizek offers a close reading of today's religious constellation from the viewpoint of Lacanian psychoanalysis. He critically confronts both predominant versions of today's spirituality - New Age gnosticism and deconstructionist-Levinasian Judaism - and then tries to redeem the "materialist" kernel of Christianity. His reading of Christianity is explicitly political, discerning in the Pauline community of believers the first version of a revolutionary collective. Since today even advocates of Enlightenment like Jurgen Habermas acknowledge that a religious vision is needed to ground our ethical and political stance in a "postsecular" age, this book - with a stance that is clearly materialist and at the same time indebted to the core of the Christian legacy - is certain to stir controversy."--Jacket
On belief by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

33 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Dutch and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected writings by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

44 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Serbian and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slavoj Zizek is one of the world's foremost cultural commentators: a prolific writer and thinker, whose vividly adventurous, unorthodox and wide-ranging writings have won him a unique place as one of the most high profile thinkers of our time. Covering psychoanalysis, philosophy and popular culture and drawing on a heady mix of Marxist politics, Hegelian dialectics and Lacanian psychoanalysis, the writings collected in Interrogating the Real reflect not only the remarkable extent of Zizek's varied interests, but also reveal his controversial and dynamic style
The neighbor : three inquiries in political theology by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Civilization and Its Discontents, Freud made abundantly clear what he thought about the biblical injunction, first articulated in Leviticus 19:18 and then elaborated in Christian teachings, to love one's neighbor as oneself. "Let us adopt a naive attitude towards it," he proposed, "as though we were hearing it for the first time; we shall be unable then to suppress a feeling of surprise and bewilderment." After the horrors of World War II, the Holocaust, Stalinism, and Yugoslavia, Leviticus 19:18 seems even less conceivable--but all the more urgent now--than Freud imagined
Hegel & the infinite : religion, politics, and dialectic by Creston Davis( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catherine Malabou, Antonio Negri, John D. Caputo, Bruno Bosteels, Mark C. Taylor, and Slavoj Žižek join seven others-including William Desmond, Katrin Pahl, Adrian Johnston, Edith Wyschogrod, and Thomas A. Lewis-to apply Hegel's thought to twenty-first-century philosophy, politics, and religion. Doing away with claims that the evolution of thought and history is at an end, these thinkers safeguard Hegel's innovations against irrelevance and, importantly, reset the distinction of secular and sacred. These original contributions focus on Hegelian analysis and the transformative

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mythology, Madness and Laughter: Subjectivity in German Idealism explores some long neglected but crucial themes in German idealism.

Engaging with three central figures of the German idealist movement, Hegel, Schelling and Fichte
What does Europe want? : the Union and its discontents by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

20 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Turkish and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slavoj Žižek and Srećko Horvat combine their critical clout to emphasize the dangers of ignoring Europe's growing wealth gap and the parallel rise in right-wing nationalism, which is directly tied to the fallout from the ongoing financial crisis and its prescription of imposed austerity. To general observers, the European Union's economic woes appear to be its greatest problem, but the real peril is an ongoing ideological-political crisis that threatens an era of instability and reactionary brutality. The fall of communism in 1989 seemed to end the leftist program of universal emancipation. However, nearly a quarter of a century later, the European Union has failed to produce any coherent vision that can mobilize people to action. Until recently, the only ideology receptive to European workers has been the nationalist call to "defend" against immigrant integration. Today, Europe is focused on regulating the development of capitalism and promoting a reactionary conception of its cultural heritage. Yet staying these courses, Žižek and Horvat show, only strips Europe of its power and stifles its political ingenuity. The best hope is for Europe to revive and defend its legacy of universal egalitarianism, which benefits all parties by preserving the promise of equal representation
