    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 (...)

    Zizek Now: Current Perspectives in Zizek Studies.Jamil Khader & Molly Anne Rothenberg - 2013 - Polity.
    Arguably the most prolific and most widely read philosopher of our time, Slavoj Zizek has made indelible interventions into many disciplines of the so-called human sciences that have transformed the terms of discussion in these fields. Although his work has been the subject of many volumes of searching criticism and commentary, there is no assessment to date of the value of his work for the development of these disciplines. _Zizek Now_ brings together distinguished critics to explore the utility and far-ranging (...)

    United States of Europe or Free Trade Zone? No Thanks! Slavoj Žižek on the Future of Europe.Fabio Vighi & Heiko Michael Feldner - unknown
    This article seeks to unravel the theoretical implications of Slavoj Žižek’s plea for a leftist Eurocentrism, focusing specifically on his defence of the ‘No’ vote in the French and Dutch referenda on the European Constitution. While most liberal commentators have read these results as a blow to the hopes of a United Europe against the overwhelming geopolitical power of the United States, Žižek argues that the French and Dutch ‘No’ votes express a deep-seated desire for a radically changed idea of (...)

    The Most Sublime Hysteric: Hegel with Lacan.Slavoj Zizek - 2014 - Polity.

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 (...)

    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 (...)

    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.

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.

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.

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.

For both these theoretical trends, the re-evaluation of the discourse and practice of human rights takes the form of an internal critique, whose goal is not the rejection of human rights but their reshaping or re-founding.

    For Marx, the peculiarity of the modern economic life is tied to capital gains. It is a form of enjoyment : the production of excess consumed to produce more excess. In capitalism, this production is not directed to a symbolic place: it is a real joy that reifies the man turning it into a factor of production. Enjoyment is at the service of itself in a sort of incessant autophagy. To move from the capitalist mode of production to another involves (...)

I use Zizek's psychoanalytic and Marxist pedagogy to problematise the notion of "rights" in the context of capitalism, and to discuss the obsene underbelly of disavowed desire that haunts nationalist mythologies. I use Zizek's writings to argue that identity based struggles must be connected to a broader political vision. Without a larger political will contemporary movements for sexual freedoms risk the production of a safe (...)

What is the connection between parallax and grievance? Why is parallax always associated with grievance, and why is grievance for its part a form of parallax?

    The Failure of the Islamic Revolution: The Nature of the Present Crisis in Iran.Christopher Cutrone - 2009 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 3 (4).
