Abstract

IN A STREAM OF WRITINGS and talks since 1989, the Slovenian social theorist Slavoj Žižek has blended Lacanian psychoanalysis and Hegelian philosophy with film criticism, cultural studies, and authoritarian Marxism to earn a reputation as “one of the most dazzling figures on the intellectual left,” in the words of social theorist Alex Callinicos. There are Žižek T-Shirts, Žižek YouTube pages, an International Journal of Žižek Studies, Žižek CDs and DVDs, even Žižek!, the movie. “He has travelled the globe like an intellectual rock star for the past twenty years, gathering as he goes an immense fan club,” says literary critic Terry Eagleton.
