Žižek : a guide for the perplexed by Sean Sheehan( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most widely-read thinkers writing today, Slavoj Žižek's work can be both thrilling and perplexing in equal measure. Žižek: A Guide for the Perplexed is the most up-to-date guide available for readers struggling to master the ideas of this hugely influential thinker. Unpacking the philosophical references that fill Žižek's writings, the book explores his influences, including Lacan, Kant, Hegel and Marx. From there, a chapter on 'Reading Žižek' guides the reader through the ways that he applies these core theoretical concepts in key texts like Tarrying With the Negative, The Ticklish Subject and The Parrallax View and in his books about popular culture like Looking Awry and Enjoy Your Symptom! Major secondary writings and films featuring Žižek are also covered."--Publisher's description

11 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Socrates by Sean Sheehan( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Socrates (470-399 BC), the most famous Ancient Greek philosopher, was sentenced to death by the Athenian assembly in 399 BC for atheism and corrupting the young men of the city. Why a thinker who has been revered for millennia afterwards should have met such a fate is but one of the 'Socrates problems' addressed in this study. Here, Socrates' philosophy is placed firmly in the context of the world, and the city, Athens, in which he lived. It is this background that sheds light upon his fate, despite the absence of any writings by Socrates himself. His influence on future thinkers such as Montaigne, Nietzsche and Kierkegaard is also examined."--Jacket
Sophocles' Oedipus the king : a reader's guide by Sean Sheehan( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described as the Mona Lisa of literature and the worlds first detective story, Sophocles' Oedipus the King is a major text from the ancient Greek world and an iconic work of world literature. Aristotles favourite play, lauded by him as the exemplary Athenian tragedy, Oedipus the King has retained its power both on and off the stage. Before Freuds famous interpretation of the play an appropriation, some might say Hlderlin and Nietzsche recognised its unique qualities
