    Starting from the author’s critique of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe, this essay offers a comprehensive interpretation of Slavoj Žižek’s political theory. ŽiŽek’s position drives a wedge between two concepts foundational to Laclau and Mouffe’s ‘radical democratic theory’, namely ‘antagonism’ and ‘anti-essentialism’. Anti-essentialism, it is argued, carries with it a residual utopianism - i.e. a view of political theory as offering a vision of a desirable radicalized society or a ‘radical democratic imaginary’ - that the more radical concept of antagonism (...)

    This essay analyzes Darrren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream and the sacrifice of enjoyment constitutive of subjectivity with which is chiefly concerned. Via drugs, romantic love, or television, Aronofsky's characters seek out a form of recognition and wholeness they associate with youth and childhood. As the film charts their approach of this very recognition and wholeness, however, Aronofsky works formally to convey its corrosive horror. In the film's conflation of the dream and real world, and in its final sequence of (...)

    Although the lamella in its original Lacanian context is generally conceived as a metaphor for the libido, this paper primarily functions as a response to Zizek’s reimagination of Lacan’s myth of the lamella, and addresses the often capricious repercussions of this transmutation on contemporary cultural accounts of the lamella. This paper aims to interrogate the specifically visual appearances of the lamella across three intersecting critical dimensions: firstly, I address the ‘cultural studies lamella’, which selectively reinterprets Zizek’s reading of this particular (...)

    I am going to work the differences and convergences that I find between these authors in relation to the concept of political subject, simultaneously, in a brief unfolding of their respective theoretical systems and in relation to three fundamental topics: the ontology of the Real, the partial representation and the temporary retroactivity of the subjetivación.

    In this paper I attempt to unravel the complex discursive threads intertwined in Alain Badiou’s philosophy. I proceed by displaying the main concepts that this author formulates and their multiple articulations. I also bring forward accounts and debates with the readings that other authors, close to Badiou´s thinking, do of these concepts: Žižek, Laclau, Milner. In doing so I place special emphasis on the radical difference established by Badiou´s mathematic device/mechanism –whether it is taken into consideration or not and how- (...)

    En el presente artículo intentaré desplegar una aporía inherente a nuestra condición moderna de ciudadanos: la duplicidad de ser, simultáneamente, objeto y sujeto de la Ley. La modalidad implicativa que asumo en esta presentación se corresponde con la posición del intelectual que formulan los mismos autores que presento: Badiou, Rancière, Laclau y Zizek. Apelaré, por lo tanto, a la teoría política posmarxista, al psicoanálisis y a la literatura para circunscribir este problema. Uno de los puntos que me interesa remarcar, en (...)

    The focus of this paper is the Lacanian critical reading of the modern political device: the individual and the human rights, the theological side of modern science, the idea of power and of revolution. From this point, the article tries to underline the originality of Lacanian theory in the field of political philosophy, and to debate this outcomes with respects to the major studies of “political Lacan”.

    The aim of this “italian issue” is to pose the question “What change with Lacan in philosophy and in political/social theory?”. This problems is addressed by the authors with attention for the relationship between Lacan and philosophical-political modern thought, Lacan and French Marxism , Lacan and Žižek. The concern of the authors is not only in Lacan, but also in his effect to construct a contemporary analysis of political field.

Spectacular sports provide allegories of the excessive body, and these embodied narratives are meticulously produced through an individualizing training machine designed to deliver moments of excess. Sports produce phantasms of peak moments and phallic dominance, and symbolize a conquest of youth, women and the working population. (...)

The glitch draws attention to the inherent contradictions of the technological proffer to seamlessly augment and enhance a life unaided by technology. There is no life unaided by technology, and the glitch is what introduces to life the gap between failure and fantasy, self and other, individual and community, inside and outside, representation and nature. Communication technologies attempt (...)

    As Slavoj Žižek writes in his book The Puppet and the Dwarf: the Perverse Core of Christianity , one of the only options generally permitted Christianity in the 21st century is to re-activate the “dangerous memory” of Jesus and return to the radical core of truth and that had to be repressed in order for the institutional Church to establish itself. In undertaking this task, this paper will set up a short-circuit between the paradoxical heart of Jesus' most memorable teachings (...)

    While Žižek is right to assert both that Heidegger’s political engagement must be confronted as a genuine philosophical challenge and that our modern predicament demands new thinking, I argue that Žižek is wrong to claim that Heidegger made the right step in 1933, even if in the wrong direction. Using the same story as Žižek, G. K. Chesterton’s “The Sign of the Broken Sword,” I argue that Žižek’s sword is also broken, because in the absence of a “big Other,” it (...)

A partir de ellos ha abordado la discusión respecto a las relaciones entre sociedad, prácticas y discursos, polemizando no sólo contra las ideologías que pregonan que vivimos en una época ‘pos-política’, sino contra (...)

    This essay puts forward an alternative cloacal theory of birth that is implicit in Freud and Lacan, and yet still largely implicit in Žižek. The anal voice is the meeting-place of shit and the rectum , which inaugurates the subject qua the subject of discourse, the speaking-being or what Lacan simply calls parlêtre. Summoning from inside the incipient subject the alien within, the object that is in the subject more than the subject itself, the anal voice introduces the subject to (...)

    "Oldboy" , a korean movie quickly getting also a huge international success, has been generally recognized as a present-day traditional Oedipal tale AND a postmodernist hitchcockian pastiche . Of course, it is a singular contradiction. But there is a reason. Žižek's explanation of lacanian Oedipal theory is very helpful in understanding why, in "Oldboy", Oedipal logic emerges in the very midst of its apparent "postmodernist" dismissal.

Como se verá, de acordo com o autor esloveno, os direitos humanos representam uma ética perversa, já que sua pretensa neutralidade parece ser fictícia.

La deuxième et dernière section décrit les principales solutions proposées par Žižek : traverser le fantasme, répéter le léninisme, l’acte de violence divine et l’identification au sinthome.

The examination of this will proceed by way of two movements. The first investigates how Žižek's work, especially his general interest in "short circuiting," provides theoretical insight (...)

    Žižek's reading of Hegel is, as he and many of his readers explicitly recognize, distinctly unorthodox. Efforts to appraise these readings often make reference to and mobilize the "real Hegel," a recognized standard and authorized understanding of Hegelian philosophy against which a particular interpretation may be compared and evaluated. This concept of "the real" is rooted in fundamental ontological assumptions that are at least as old as Plato. Žižek's critical interventions in the ontology of the real expose these assumptions and (...)

Žižek holds that Lacan’s ideas of the Real about antagonism overturn in 1980s the theory of classic Marxism, on which he argues and forms the theories of psychoanalytic ideology. In late 1990s, he departed from Post-Marxism, arguing for the concrete universality of politics and the act of philosophy, and criticized the ‘subject’ of philosophy with his theory. From 2000, Žižek began to interpret Leninism with Lacan’s theory, and gradually returned to (...)
