Synopsis: A comprehensive overview of Slavoj ?i?ek's thought, including all of his published works to date.

  • Provides a solid basis in the work of an engaging thinker and teacher whose ideas will continue to inform philosophical, psychological, political, and cultural discourses well into the future
  • Identifies the major currents in ?i?ek's thought, discussing all of his works and providing a background in continental philosophy and psychoanalytic theory necessary to its understanding
  • Explores ?i?ek's growing popularity through his engagement in current events, politics, and cultural studies
  • Pertains to a variety of fields, including contemporary philosophy, psychology, cultural studies, sociology, political science, esthetics, literary theory, film theory, and theology

From the Back Cover: Slavoj ?i?ek is widely regarded as the most significant and provocative thinker of our age. He integrates concepts from the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan with Hegel's dialectical method in philosophy, for a radically new vision of human nature and human society. ?i?ek has written-with humor, lucidity, and extraordinary erudition-on the philosophical problem of identity, ontology, globalization, postmodernism, political philosophy, literature, film, ecology, religion, the French Revolution, Lenin, the philosophy of language, and the philosophy of mind.

?i?ek: A Reader's Guide situates ?i?ek's wide-ranging work in the broader context of continental philosophy, engages its precedents, and provides an overview of its main preoccupations, providing a backstory for both the philosopher and the general reader.

Moving deftly through the work of G.W.F. Hegel, F.W.J. Schelling, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Martin Heidegger, Jacques Derrida, Louis Althusser, and Alain Badiou, in addition to Lacan, this reader's guide offers a comprehensive overview of Slavoj ?i?ek's thought.

Kelsey Wood has taught philosophy at the College of the Holy Cross, at Boston University, and at the Pennsylvania State University. He is the author of Troubling Play:  Meaning and Entity in Plato's Parmenides (2005), and Plato's Later Dialectic and Continental Philosophy (forthcoming).
