The parallax view by Slavoj Žižek( )

27 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 2,415 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 puppet and the dwarf : the perverse core of Christianity by Slavoj Žižek( )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 1,975 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
Looking awry : an introduction to Jacques Lacan through popular culture by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

54 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En este libro, Slavoj Zizek invierte las estrategias pedagógicas actuales para explicar los arduos cimientos filosóficos del teórico y clínico frances que ha revolucionado nuestra concepción del psicoanálisis. Aborda a Lacan a través de los temas y las obras de la cultura popular contemporánea, desde "Vértigo" de Hitchcock hasta "Cementerio de animales" de Stephen King, o desde "Obsesión indigna" de McCullough hasta "La noche de los muertos vivos" de Romero, con una estrategia de "mirada al sesgo" que recuerda la experiencia estimulante y vital de Lacan. Zizek descubre que las categorías lacanianas fundamentales -la triada de lo imaginario, lo simbólico y lo real; el objeto a; la oposición entre pulsión y deseo; el sujeto dividido -operan en los relatos de horror, policiales y románticos, y sobre todo en las películas de Alfred Hitchcock. Pero el texto de Zizek, por su carácter lúdico, es completamente distinto de los que asociamos con el enfoque desconstructivo difundido por Jacques Derrida. Al aclarar lo que Lacan dice y lo que no dice, Zizek puede diferenciarlo de los postestructuralistas que tan a menudo se proclaman continuadores del maestro francés
What does a Jew want? : on binationalism and other specters by Udi Aloni( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Udi Aloni, causing a power fault in the ruling liberal attitude by way of short-circuiting different levels of ideology, art, and thought; rewrites the Oedipus myth and rejects liberal Zionism. Who but Aloni can combine the tremendous poetic power of creating new myths with the perspicuous mind of a cold theoretician? Who but Aloni can ground his ruthless critique of Zionism into his unconditional fidelity to the Jewish tradition? If anyone needs a proof that political theology is well and alive, here it is!"--Slavoj ŽižekIn the hopes of promoting justice, peace, an
What does Europe want? : the Union and its discontents by Slavoj Žižek( )

26 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,503 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
Hegel & the infinite : religion, politics, and dialectic by Creston Davis( )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, 13 major scholars reassess the place of Hegel in contemporary theory and the philosophy of religion. The contributors focus not only on Hegelian analysis but also on the transformative value of his thought in relation to our current 'turn to religion'
Žižek's jokes : (did you hear the one about Hegel and negation?) by Slavoj Žižek( )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and Slovenian and held by 1,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The neighbor : three inquiries in political theology by Slavoj Žižek( )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,160 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." In The Neighbor, three of the most significant intellectuals working in psychoanalysis and critical theory collaborate to show how this problem of neighbor-love opens questions that are fundamental to ethical inquiry and that suggest a new theological configuration of political theory
The sublime object of ideology by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

97 editions published between 1989 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 1,101 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
On belief by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

54 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On belief traces the contours of the often unconscious beliefs that structure our daily experience. The book shows that underlying all these experiences, virtual or real, is a pagan and ultimately futile search for divine and human perfection. Drawing on examples from film, psychoanalysis, cultural studies, philosophy and religion, the author calls for a return to the neglected Christian idea that belief is actually about imperfection. --book cover
Living in the end times by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

47 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There should no longer be any doubt: global capitalism is fast approaching its terminal crisis. But if the end of capitalism seems to many like the end of the world, how is it possible for Western society to grasp what it conceives of as the end times? In this major analysis of our global situation, Slavoj 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."--Page 4 of cover
In defense of lost causes by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

59 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 956 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'
Enjoy your symptom! : Jacques Lacan in Hollywood and out by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

52 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An elucidation of the fundamentals of Lacanian theory - letter, fantasy, woman, repetition, phallus, father, - with reference to popular culture and films such as 'City Lights', 'Sophie's Choice' and 'The Elephant Man'
Hegel's rabble : an investigation into Hegel's Philosophy of right by Frank Ruda( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Hegel''s Rabble, Frank Ruda identifies and explores a crucial problem in the Hegelian philosophy of right that strikes at the heart of Hegel''s conception of the state. This singular problem, which Ruda argues is the problem of Hegelian political thought, appears in Hegel''s text only in a seemingly marginal form under the name of the ""rabble"": a particular side-effect of the dialectical deduction of the necessity of the existence of state from the contradictory constitution of civil society. Working out from a thorough analysis of this problem and drawing on contemporary discussions in the work of such thinkers as Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy and Slavoj Zizek, the book proceeds to re-examine and reconstruct Hegel's entire political project. Ruda goes on to argue that only by re-thinking this problem of 'the rabble' in Hegel's thought - the only problem Hegel is able neither to resolve nor to sublate - can the early Marxian conception of 'the proletariat' be properly understood
Organs without bodies : on Deleuze and consequences by Slavoj Žižek( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this deliciously polemical work, a giant of cultural theory immerses himself in the ideas of a giant of French thought. In his inimical style, Zizek links Deleuze's work with both Oedipus and Hegel, figures from whom the French philosopher distanced himself. Zizek turns some Deleuzian concepts around in order to explore the 'organs without bodies' in such films as Fight Club and the works of Hitchcock. Finally, he attacks what he sees as the 'radical chic' Deleuzians, arguing that such projects turn Deleuze into an ideologist of today's 'digital capitalism'. With his brilliant energy and fearless argumentation, Zizek sets out to restore a truer, more radical Deleuze than the one we thought we knew"--Page 4 of cover
Organs without bodies : Deleuze and consequences by Slavoj Žižek( )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slavoj Zizek takes the work of French philosopher Gilles Deleuze as the beginning of a dazzling enquiry into the realms of radical politics, philosophy, film and psychoanalysis
Interrogating the real : [selected writings] by Slavoj Žižek( )

40 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects 15 writings by Slovene sociologist, philosopher, and cultural critic Zizek (U. of Ljubljana, Slovenia), who is perhaps best known for applying the works of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan to readings of popular culture. The writings have been organized into three sections intended to demonstrate the contours of Zizek's work. In turn they address his first encounters with Lacan and G. W. F. Hegel; the development of the ideas in his major books (For They Know Not What They Do: Enjoyment as a Political Factor, Tarrying with the Negative: Kant, Hegel, and the Critique of Ideology, Metastases of Enjoyment: Six Essays on Women and Causality, The Indivisible Remainder: An Essay on Schelling and Related Matters, and The Parallax View; and the analysis of ideology
Violence : six sideways reflections by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

30 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 841 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
First as tragedy, then as farce by Slavoj Žižek( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and Hungarian and held by 791 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 )
