    Violence and Revolutionary Subjectivity.Christopher J. Finlay - 2006 - European Journal of Political Theory 5 (4):373-397.
    The purpose of this article is to explore the relationship between revolution and violence in Marxism and in a series of texts drawing on Marxian theory. Part 1 outlines the basic normative frameworks which determine the outer limits of permissible violence in Marxism. Part 2 presents a critical analysis of a series of later discussions - by Sorel, Fanon and Žižek - which transformed the terms in which violence was discussed by developing one particular aspect of Marxist thought. By teasing (...)

    Dōgen and the Unknown Knowns: The Practice of the Wild After the End of Nature.Jason M. Wirth - 2013 - Environmental Philosophy 10 (1):39-61.
    Thinkers like Slavoj Žižek and Tim Morton have heralded the end of our ideological constructions of nature, warning that popular “ecology” or the “natural” is just the latest opiate of the masses. Attempting to think what I call Nature after Nature, I turn to the Kamakura period Zen master Dōgen Eihei to explore the possibilities of thinking Nature in its non-ideological self-presentation or what Dōgen called “mountains and rivers.” I bring Dōgen into dialogue with his great champion, the American poet (...)

    Hegel’s Epistemic Turn—Or Spinoza's?Heidi M. Ravven - 2003 - Idealistic Studies 33 (2/3):195-202.
    This paper takes issue with Slavoj Zizek's constructed opposition between Spinoza and Hegel. Where Zizek views Hegel's non-dualistic relational epistemology as a substantial improvement over Spinoza's purported dogmatic account of a reality which is external to the perceiver, I argue that Hegel inherited such an epistemology from Spinoza. Ultimately, it is Spinoza who provides Hegel with the conceptual tools for knowledge of the "transphenomenal" within the context of human finitude.

    The Logos Between Psychology, Ontology, and Divinity: Fundamental Aspects of the Concept of Logos in the Early Thought of Slavoj Žižek.Corneliu C. Simut - 2014 - Hts Theological Studies 70 (1):01-12.
    Slavoj Žižek's philosophy spans over more than three decades, which is confirmed by the numerous books he published since the late 1980s. Since his thinking about the idea of logos is no exception, this article focuses on what can be termed Žižek's early philosophy, and especially that depicted in his The sublime object of ideology (1989) and The metastases of enjoyment (1994). Whilst the former underlines the psychological aspects of the logos, the latter focuses more on theories about being, as (...)

    The Aesthetics of Ideology, or ‘The Critique of Ideological Judgment’ in Eagleton and Zizek.Matthew Sharpe - 2006 - Political Theory 34 (1):95-120.
    The notions of ‘ideology’ and ‘critique of ideology’ have been criticised in manyways. This essay examines theworks of two contemporary theorists who defend this theoretical category. Interestingly, both do this through pivotal recourse to categories drawn from modern aesthetic theory, and in particular Kant's third Critique. In thisway, they reanimate a theoretical concern with the intersection of politics and aesthetics that goes as far back as Plato. The essay's conclusion reflects on this “aesthetic turn” in the theory of ideology: what (...)

What do we know that isn't a platitude that we've heard a thousand times - or a self-satisfied certainty? Through his brilliant reading of Hegel, Slavoj Zizek - one of the most provocative and widely-read thinkers of our time - upends our traditional understanding, dynamites every cliché and undermines every conviction in order to clear the ground for (...)

    Alain Badiou and Slavoj Žižek together have emerged as two of Europe’s most significant living philosophers. In a shared spirit of resistance to global capitalism, both are committed to bringing philosophical reflection to bear upon present-day political circumstances. These thinkers are especially interested in asking what consequences the supposed twentieth-century demise of communism entails for leftist political theory in the early twenty-first century. _ Badiou, Žižek, and Political Transformations_ examines Badiouian and Žižekian depictions of change, particularly as deployed at the (...)

An excellent introduction to one of the most engaging and controversial cultural theorists writing today.

    On Zizek and Trilling.J. Holbo - 2004 - Philosophy and Literature 28 (2):430.
    : J.S. Mill declares the true liberal prays for enlightened opposition. Slavoj Žižek's anti-liberal Kierkegaardian-Leninist philosophy, as presented in On Belief, is sized up as an opponent but fails to measure up philosophically. Žižek is not clear-headed; doesn't understand Kierkegaard; doesn't understand Lenin; or is too much of a soft-hearted liberal who only wishes he weren't. Žižek fears liberalism may threaten freedom. But the threats he sees — although real — are old news to liberals. Lionel Trilling-inspired hints concerning the (...)

    Tarrying with the Negative: Kant, Hegel, and the Critique of Ideology.Slavoj Zizek - 1993 - Duke University Press.
    In the space of barely more than five years, with the publication of four pathbreaking books, Slavoj Žižek has earned the reputation of being one of the most arresting, insightful, and scandalous thinkers in recent memory. Perhaps more than any other single author, his writings have constituted the most compelling evidence available for recognizing Jacques Lacan as the preemient philosopher of our time. In _Tarrying with the Negative_, Žižek challenges the contemporary critique of ideology, and in doing so opens the (...)

    Difference, Repetition, and the N[on-All]: The Parallactic Mirror of Zizek and Deleuze.Samantha Bankston - 2015 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 9 (2).
    The ontologies of Slavoj Žižek and Gilles Deleuze are incommensurable. Rather than appropriate one at the expense of the other, this essay uses Žižek’s notion of parallax to think the two philosophers together, without mediation. Both Deleuze and Žižek provide mirrored philosophical images, with the point of divergence being absolute lack. Deleuze argues that lack, or the being of negation, is an error of representational understanding, while Žižek conceives his philosophy as being driven by absolute lack. A stark opponent of (...)

    Untimely Hesitations.Knox Peden - 2015 - Modern Intellectual History:1-10.
    Intellectual historians owe Nietzsche a debt for many things, not least for lending the quality of “untimeliness” a positive connotation. In the late 1990s, when Marxism was arguably at its nadir as an intellectual program, much less a political one, Warren Breckman published an insightful study of Marx’s early thought and its genesis out of a series of disputes with the Young Hegelians concerning the state and its ambiguous relationship with theological conceptions of authority. The untimeliness of Breckman’s intervention had (...)

    Violence and the Origins of Legislative Authority.David Allinson - 2009 - Emergent Australasian Philosophers 2 (1):1-16.
    This paper reflects a two-fold attempt. Firstly, to give an account the works of Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt and Slavoz Zizek on Violence. Secondly, it aims to illuminate a uniform trend in their work. This trend identifies the necessity of a certain amount violence in order to create the pre-conditions of a lawful society. Benjamin‟s critique shows that the authority of law, when seen naked, is based on a myth. However, what is being advocated here is not childish anarchism. This (...)

    Slavoj Žižek on Jacques Derrida, or On Derrida’s Search for a Middle Ground Between Marx and Benjamin, and His Finding Žižek Instead.Colby Dickinson - 2015 - Philosophy Today 59 (2):291-304.
    Critiques of Derrida from contemporary Marxist positions are nothing new, though the nature and force of their argumentation need to be further analyzed in order to conceive of what stake Derrida will continue to have in our understanding of any political inheritance within the coming decades. In this essay, I seek to advance the conversation between Derrida and his Hegelian-Marxist critics—with Slavoj Žižek’s unique reading of Derrida being here foremost among them—in order to ascertain more precisely the framework of debate (...)

His prolific writings – across philosophy, psychoanalysis, political and social theory, film, music and religion – always engage and provoke. The power of his ideas, the breadth of his references, his capacity for playfulness and confrontation, his willingness to change his mind and his refusal fundamentally to alter his argument – all have worked to build an extraordinary international readership as well as to elicit much critical reaction.

    When Alain Badiou writes that “we make up a politburo of two which decides who will be the first to shoot the other,” he shares with us more than just some playful hyperbole concerning his relationship with Žižek; instead, the joke’s Stalinist framework reveals the brutal mutual-exclusivity of the metapolitical consequences of these authors’ divided conceptualizations of the real. Badiou’s and Žižek’s debate concerning the real acquires critical urgency, since what is ultimately at stake is a theorization of the egalitarian (...)

    My goal is to offer a strategy for understanding the intended effect of Žižek's sociopolitical writings. Although many critics are suspicious of Žižek's lack of a positive program for action or his rejection of liberal democracy, my conviction is that these concerns miss something essential in Žižek's endeavor as an intervention: Žižek's continual insistence on the need to “reformulate” the Left, “reinvent” the political, “think” an alternative future, if we are to overcome the impasses we face today and which in (...)

    Lacanian thought has an interesting beam of effects in the realm of philosophy and political theory. The concern of the article is the Lacanian ability to develops a practice of thought that deals with the real and that not to yield to its own desire. The main themes that the paper take into analyse are the Lacanian critique of individualism and of classical political thought with particular concern for the relationships between Lacan and Descartes-Hegel-Heidegger, and between Lacan and modern politics.

    This article presents one new method of innovation, the method of next practice, and its ideological impact in knowledge society. Utilising Ben Fine’s focus on economic imperialism and Slavoj Žižek’s rethinking of ideology as critical perspectives, a critical position is developed utilising the idea of correcting our linguistic practice of concept-use as an ongoing unfolding of a more correct use. From this position the connection between ideology and innovation, as manifested in the method of next practice, is then criticised for (...)

    At the center of this paper is the question of fetishism in Marx’s Capital, understood as a representation that plays a crucial role in the capitalist mode of production: the very nature of social relationships is opaque and not immediately intelligible. From this standpoint, the article tries to compare the Marxist perspective with that of Lacan’s psychoanalysis, simoultaneously hightlighting the common elements and the great differences.

    There is something queer about the social inability to act upon or to even fully think massive, impending ecological change. It is both obvious and confounding: on one level, we all know it is coming; on the other, we do not want to believe it and we refuse large-scale action to stop it. There is a game of political blame-shifting but there is also, and more importantly, an inability to ideologically engage with the contemporary ecological dilemma. Here I use the (...)

    This essay considers drive as a category for political economy. The reflexive loops, stuckness, and ruptures of drive manifest themselves in the dynamic of capitalism’s booms and busts. I use drive to analyze the extreme capitalism of neoliberalism, focusing on reflexivity in finance at three levels: the derivative as a commodity, competition as a circuit, and knowledge as the discourse of the university.
