Central to this enterprise is the examination of the theory which he returns to time and again - that the subject is the subject of a void. If, on the other hand, you read The Sublime Object of Ideology first, you will be better able to grasp the subtleties of his arguments concerning detective fiction, pornography, democracy and Hitchcock.
Presented as a sequel to The Sublime Object of Ideology, this book examines the historical change emblematized by the shift in the telling of the Rabinovitch joke from that first book. In particular, it analyses the re-emergence of militant nationalism and racism in the wake of the break-up of the socialist countries of Eastern Europe. Zizek identifies the cause of this re-emergence in an eruption of enjoyment. This book also contains an extended discussion of the concept of the vanishing mediator.
Enjoy Your Symptom! The book is structured around five chapters, each of which endeavors to explain a fundamental Lacanian concept - letter, woman, repetition, phallus and father. Hollywood is once again the lure in this text as Zizek elaborates each concept with reference to popular culture. However, as with Looking Awry, the familiarity of the examples does not necessarily make this the most accessible of his books to read.
In the second edition of the book Routledge, , Zizek added a chapter on the concept of reality. Using the film The Matrix as an example, he looks at the relationship between the Symbolic and the Real and explains why the big Other does not exist. Here he sets out the case that Lacan is the third philosopher to accomplish this gesture after Plato and Kant, both of whom also trumped the relativistic attitudes of their day by way of an act of even greater radicalization.
As this synopsis suggests, Tarrying with the Negative is, at times, a difficult book but one which repays the effort of your labor. The Metastases of Enjoyment: Six. In each of the six essays, Zizek begins by asking and ultimately answering the kind of basic questions that anyone interested in Lacanian psychoanalysis sooner or later wants to know the answers to.
This book forms part of a larger project for Zizek to reinvigorate the reputation of German Idealism which, for him, constitutes the bedrock of all philosophy. As can be imagined from this brief description, the first two parts of this volume make a complex and demanding read. This is an extended explanation of the psychoanalytical concept of fantasy. As part of this discussion, Zizek advances one of his most considered analyses of cyberspace, which threatens to abolish the dimension of Symbolic virtuality.
Judging by the number of articles it has spawned, this book is one of the most comprehensive monographs Zizek wrote. Structured in three parts, the book takes to task critics of Cartesian subjectivity in the fields of German idealism, French political philosophy and Anglo-American cultural studies, directing blame for contemporary scientific and technological catastrophes away from the cogito and laying it squarely at the door of capitalism.
While the overall philosophical argument is enjoyable in itself, Zizek also delivers a series of fascinating local insights which range across all aspects of political, cultural and social life.
As Zizek himself confesses, it might seem strange for a Marxist to defend the legacy of Christianity in an age which has seen the re-emergence of obscurantist religious thought. This is an accessible work which underscores the utopian aspect of his discussion of the "night of the world" in previous books.
The main contention is that the fims functions as a form of meta-commentary on the opposition between the clasic and postmodern femme fatale. According to him, this action dramatized a false alternative between the New World Order and the neo-racist nationalists opposing it. For Zizek, on the other hand, these are the two sides of the same coin - the New World Order, in which NATO is the military arm of multinational capitalism, itself breeds the monstrosities, such as Slobodan Milosevic, that it fights.
Did Somebody Say Totalitarianism? Zizek examines five aspects of totalitarianism and concludes that the problem with the notion is the very thing that makes such a designation possible in the first place - the liberal democratic consensus among whose members he includes just about everybody, damning tham as a bunch of "conformist scoundrles". This work is more explicitlly political in its content, ending as it does with the refrain for increased socialization "in some form or another. This book is an intervention in the on-going debate in the field of film studies which is split between Theory anything loosely affiliated with structuralism and post-structuralism and Post-theory anything loosely affiliated with a dislike of structuralism and post-structuralism.
The main cause for antipathy for the Post-theorists is the dominance of crtain Lacanian concepts in the field of film studies. On Belief, New York: Routledge, Zizek returns to the territory of The Fragile Absolute in what he describes as a "self-critical" mood. Although advertized as an analysis of belief, the main concept concept in the book is the call for a politics of the ethical act, one which rejects the comforts of pragmatism and repeats the hard-line and unrepentant ethic of Saint Paul and Lenin.
