9780745653716: Zizek Now: Current Perspectives in Zizek Studies

Arguably the most prolific and most widely read philosopher of our time, Slavoj Zizek has made indelible interventions into many disciplines of the so-called human sciences that have transformed the terms of discussion in these fields. Although his work has been the subject of many volumes of searching criticism and commentary, there is no assessment to date of the value of his work for the development of these disciplines. Zizek Now brings together distinguished critics to explore the utility and far-ranging implications of Zizek's thought and provide an evaluation of the difference his work makes or promises to make in their chosen fields. As such, the volume offers chapters on quantum physics and Zizek's transcendentalist materialist theory of the subject, Hegel's absolute, materialist Christianity, postcolonial violence, eco-politics, ceremonial acts, and the postcolonial revolutionary subject. Contributors to the volume include Adrian Johnston, Ian Parker, Todd McGowan, Bruno Bosteels, Erik Vogt, Verena Conley, Joshua Ramey, Jamil Khader, and Zizek himself.

About the Author:

Dr. Jamil Khader, Professor of English and Dean of Research at Bethlehem University, Palestine.

Molly Anne Rothenberg is professor of english at Tulane University.

Review:

"When reading some of �i�ek’s more theoretical texts, we often feel that we understand his argument – well illustrated as it is through jokes and references to popular culture – but that there remains something that we feel unable to grasp (perhaps something ‘in �i�ek more than himself’). This is the gap filled by �i�ek Now : a near-comprehensive road map to �i�ek’s more challenging and fascinating ideas"
Information, Communication & Society

"Though the �i�ek-critique machine has by now begun to compete, in vigor and volume of output, with the �i�ek-machine itself, this collection of essays, devoted to one of the foremost philosophers of our era, still stands out as exemplary. The various essays demonstrate deep appreciation and knowledge of the ever-expanding �i�ek oeuvre and articulate strong, original interpretations of its development and repetitions."
Joan Copjec,University of Buffalo

"The wide-ranging scope and impressive eclecticism of this collection captures the dazzling spirit and dizzying letter of its topic: ï¿½i�ek Now carries the innovative character and challenging symptoms of Slavoj �i�ek’s theoretical achievement and political provocation.  �i�ek Now offers a valuable commentary on what is best in Slavoj's thought."
Costas Douzinas, Birkbeck University of London

"Zizek Now will undoubtedly become a key text, not only for students who aim to politicize their socio-political and cultural engagement but also for any individuals wishing to orientate themselves in relation to the diverse but interdependent strands of Zizek's output."
Tim Brennan, University of Sunderland
