  2. The Direction of Science Versus String Theory, or, Were Albert Einstein's Guidelines for the Next Scientific Revolution Wrong?Christopher Portosa Stevens - 2022 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 16 (1).
    There are scientists that have speculated that, since science involves abstraction, generalizations across facts, and the generalization of causes and theories across empirical phenomena, the direction of science is to increasingly unify forces and causes until there is a single general theory unifying all of the forces of nature. The most prominent contemporary example of this attempt to unify all of the forces of nature in a single theory is string theory or superstring theory. String theorists have attempted to emulate (...)

    This commentary provides a critique of Žižek’s 2021 article on the catastrophe of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan with a focus on Zizek’s nostalgic moment of the fully engaged subject. The commentary deploys the actual and possible scenarios of the form of subjectivity in association with the cynical subject and the sadistic superego; and suggests the possibility of an alternative ethical subjectivity.

  5. Invisible Violence: Zizek’s Categories of Violence and Ellison’s Invisible Man.Joe James Holroyd - 2022 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 16 (1).
    Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man is a violent text. It is unflinching in its confrontation with the violence at the heart of the American experience. In exploring the central role of violence here – narratively, within the novel; politically, within the culture that the novel explores – the recent work of Slavo Zizek is useful. Zizek posits a critical language which makes an important distinction between systemic violence, objective violence, and subjective violence. And, in a dialectical spirit of which both Zizek (...)

    “Woke” and cancel culture have become mainstream methods for ideological leftists to express their sense of hopelessness and frustration. And while many agree that improving social harmony is an admirable goal, policing the use of pronouns while carefully maintaining the status quo of capitalism’s production, destruction and inequality does little to address the underlying structural problems that create the conditions for social disharmony. It is on this point that Žižek finds agreement with commentators on the ideological right. But at both (...)

  9. The Profanations of Giorgio Agamben.Irfan Ajvazi - manuscript
    Agamben is hard to pin down both theologically and philosophically. He attempts to construct miraculous minutiae out of un-miraculous things. Hence this work is the act of profaning the unprofanable. What ontological stature, what imaginative configuration and what spatio-temporal coordinates this move articulates are less than forthcoming. Indeed it is possible that Agamben disavows these entirely in favour of a Benjaminian eternal 'as if' structure, one which sees in the most mundane the traces of an eternal and secular redemption. But (...)

  10. On Reflexive Racism: Disavowal, Deferment, and the Lacanian Subject.Jack Black - 2020 - Diacritics 48 (4):76-101.
    The term ‘reflexivity’ continues to maintain an interpretive hegemony in discussions on modernity and the Self. As a form of praxis, applications of reflexivity frequently rely upon an acknowledged awareness of one’s self-conscious attitudes, dispositions, behaviors and motives. This paper will take aim at such contentions, exploring the extent to which examples of racism rely upon a level of reflexivity, best encapsulated in Žižek’s ‘reflexive racism’. Specifically, it is highlighted how examples of non- racism/anti-racism assert the formal promotion of a (...)

    We are beholden to the postmodernists for their unwavering fidelity to Virginia Woolf’s legacy and the resultant popularity it continues to enjoy. This should no longer be the case. As postmodernism’s import is increasingly outflanked by the enterprises of Slavoj Žižek, Alain Badiou, and the resuscitated Hegel, we ought to rescue Woolf not only from the poststructuralists, but also from herself. I claim that another reading of Woolf is overdue, one which breaks with the general consensus. Such a reading is (...)

    Although exercising torture has been a commonality between the previous regime in Iran and the Islamic Republic, based upon Zizek’s reading of the discourses of the master and university we can detect a qualitative difference in the two regimes’ approach to torture. During the Shah, torture complemented the Shah’s gesture of the symbolic father of the nation, thereby desexualized even in cases where torture involved prisoners’ sex organs, whereas in the Islamic republic era, torture complements conservative hardliner’s lesson that Islamic (...)

This paper aims to study the Persian painting –with focus on the early Safavid dynasty as the age of glory of Iranian art- on the basis of Žižek’s theory, to show that invisible violence floated (...)

    Much has been written about Žižek’s critique of ideology and its theoretical boundaries. Beyond the critical aspect of Žižekian philosophy, the desert of Žižekian politics lies in the way subjectivity persists even at the end of great revolutionary mobilizations. In this essay, I deal with the implications of a Žižekian politics based on the theory of subjectivity and the problem of the “morning after”. His rejection of the main currents of leftism opens up the discussion whether Žižekian politics is a (...)

Žižek discusses his project of a critique of ideology, he proposes, since the concept of real abstraction by Sohn-Rethel, that are a virtual dimension that structure the practices, which, in turn, the beliefs or the subjectivity is submitted to. On contrary to the classical critique of ideology, that step in the levels of practices or the subjectivity, in Žižek’s project the subjectivity is just a rebound effect of the practices and the (...)

    In the three previous chapters we mapped out Žižek’s philosophical thinking—territory in which we situated his critique of “postmodern historicism”, as well as his bleak assessment of the struggles of the contemporary left. We have also examined his theory of revolution and his recourse to Christianity as a paradigm for communist brotherhood that may well function as a real alternative to capitalism. Throughout this interpretative and reconstructive exercise, I subjected Žižek’s proposals to a hail of critical questions and commentary, on (...)

    The problem which is both created and tackled by this article is that although it advocates the Iranian progressive reformism as the most preferable political force in Iran, it simply does not find reformists’ own formulation of their “competitive advantage” convincing enough.

In response to this claim, Žižek suggests thet being-rootless is the primordial state of being-human and that what we represent as our roots are secondary attempts to obfuscate this dimension. First, I will present Heidegger’s philosophy of technology to elucidate his thesis that the essence (...)

  23. Žižek’s Nietzsche and the Insufficiency of Trauma for a Posthuman Übermensch.Jan Gresil de los Santos Kahambing - 2021 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 15 (2).
    The Übermensch, the overcoming of man, is one of Nietzsche’s debated concepts to be situated in posthumanism. In Žižek’s posthumanism, the human as subject can not only be read in Nietzsche’s understanding of the last man, but is inherently tied to the concept of trauma. This is so that trauma, as I exposed before, is a crucial element in advancing a posthuman. This article argues that trauma is, tout court, not enough to realize a posthuman Übermensch. It faces paradoxes that (...)

    At the intersection of “the theological” and “the political,” the situatedness of the sovereign dictates the task and method of political theology. It is the sovereign, in particular, positioned between “the theological” and “the political,” that is responsible for existentializing what is theologized and what is politicized through the power of sovereignty. Through this sovereignty, the sovereign creates, defines, and oversees all the existential dimensions of a theological-political environment, especially with respect to exclusiveness and inclusiveness, marginalization and belongingness, and what (...)

    En una cita más o menos desconocida, el filósofo italiano Antonio Gramsci señala que una teoría es revolucionaria cuando es inaccesible al campo adversario. ¿No es eso precisamente lo que vemos que pasa en Chile, el país latinoamericano donde explotó una de las revueltas más largas de las últimas décadas? Después del estallido del 18 de octubre, en efecto, los intelectuales chilenos de derecha se han dedicado a un salvataje teórico de su posición económica y política. Reinventando los motes conceptuales (...)

  43. El lugar de los negados.J. Cristián Zegpi - 2020 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 14 (3).
    ¿Es posible pensar en un psicoanálisis de la exclusión, vinculado a alteraciones en los procesos de constitución de identidad, en torno a fenómenos como la inmigración o la aceptación de lo diverso? Podría pensarse que en la clínica hay evidencia de sobra sobre los efectos traumáticos en los sujetos, objeto, directamente de migraciones familiares, o de antepasados de éstos que, persiguiendo la ilusión de un porvenir vinculado con la fantasía del promise land, arribaron a nuevos territorios desconociendo lo que les (...)

  44. Análisis de la ayuda humanitaria por los cárteles de narcotráfico a la población mexicana como fenómeno violento.Jonathan Christy Baldazo Delgadillo, Lilia López López, Arturo Román Cesar Sanjuan, Selene Roldán Ruiz & José Luis Albarrán Mejía - 2020 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 14 (3).
    Resumen El presente artículo realiza un análisis de los apoyos otorgados por los cárteles de narcotráfico en México, desde la lectura del aparato crítico de Slavoj Žižek, quien sienta las bases para la interpretación de la ayuda humanitaria como un acto violento. Por lo que, el siguiente texto abarca desde la filosofía Žižekianay el psicoanálisis lacaniano, el fenómeno de la violencia ejercida por la figura del comunista liberal, en un comparativo con el crimen organizado mexicano, intentando desentrañar la estructura básica (...)

  45. Coronavirus y fin del neoliberalismo.Nora Merlin - 2020 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 14 (3).
    Resumen Slavoj Zizek, afirmó que el coronavirus implicó la irrupción de lo real lacaniano en tanto imposible al saber y a lo simbólico, agujereó a la ciencia, la ideología y conmovió los cimientos del sistema global. El virus destrozó certezas ideológicas e identificaciones, cambió la escena del mundo y produjo en la subjetividad una desestabilización fantasmática de las fijaciones neoliberales sedimentadas en la cultura. Arriesgamos la hipótesis de que el coronavirus está llamado a funcionar como el significante que marca un (...)

  48. Zizek and His Panic: A Critical Schellingian Review.Virgilio Aquino Rivas - 2020 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 14 (2).
    True to his early Schellingian roots, Slavoj Zizek, in his recent book, Pandemic! Covid-19 Shakes the World describes a virus as “a kind of zero-level life,” invoking Schelling’s Naturphilosophie. Perhaps the closest reference, though Zizek did not mention it, is his second major work on the subject, namely, First Outline of A System of the Philosophy of Nature where Schelling originally propounded the theory of nature’s ‘duplicity’. In the following discussions, we will situate Zizek’s timely intervention within the context of (...)

  49. Obvious: Žižek is Žižek!Imanol Galfarsoro - 2020 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 14 (2).
    One of Žižek’s main features is ambivalence and in this book he also remains rather pessimistic. The pandemic will not change society for the better, Žižek claims. The only thing that seems clear is that the virus will destroy the foundations of our lives bringing about a considerable amount of damage and suffering. As he also points out right from the outset, moreover, the epidemic will not make us any wiser. Through this blend of ambivalence and pessimism, Žižek develops a (...)

  50. The Appointment in Samara: A New Use for Some Old Jokes.Slavoj Žižek - 2020 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 14 (2).
    On various occasions when writing previously I’ve recounted a joke about a man who believes himself to be a grain of seed and is taken to a mental institution where the doctors do their best to convince him that he is not a seed but a human being. When they eventually succeed, he is allowed to leave the hospital. But he then returns immediately, trembling with fear. He reports that there is a chicken outside the entrance and he is terrified (...)
