    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 (...)

    Hosna as Bride of Desire and Revolutionary Par Excellence in Tayib Salih’s The Season of Migration to the North.Ali Salami & Mohsen Maleki - 2016 - ACTA PHILOLOGICA 49.
    Most readings of Tayib Salih’s Season of Migration to the North have focused on Mustafa Saeed and the nameless narrator, both male characters, and they have largely avoided a politically radical reading of the novel. This article attempts to present the female character, Hosna, as the revolutionary par excellence, following Lacan and Slavoj Žižek’s reading of Antigone. Th rough Žižek’s distinction between the act and action, this article argues that Hosna’s deed at the end of the novel, murder and suicide, (...)

    Reading Schelling Psychoanalytically: Žižek on the Ground of Consciousness and Language.Joseph Carew - 2015 - Symposium 19 (1):39-51.
    What are the origins of consciousness and language? Why are so many driven to see them as epiphenomenal to a metaphysically more primordial phenomenon when we have good reasons to think they are irreducible to such? Drawing on the work of the Slovenian psychoanalyst Slavoj Žižek, and in particular his reading of the German philosopher F.W.J. Schelling, I suggest a provactive but nuanced thesis: that at the basis of human subjectivity there is no rhyme or reason for its emergence and (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)

    In this new book, Slavoj Žižek and Glyn Daly engage in a series of entertaining conversations which illustrate the originality of Žižek’s thinking on psychoanalysis, philosophy, multiculturalism, popular/cyber culture, totalitarianism, ethics and politics. An excellent introduction to one of the most engaging and controversial cultural theorists writing today. Žižek is a Slovenian sociologist who trained as a Lacanian and uses Lacan to analyse popular culture and politics. Illustrates the originality of Žižek’s thinking on psychoanalysis, philosophy, multi-culturalism, popular/cyber culture, totalitarianism, ethics (...)

    Act Without Denial: Slavoj Žižek on Totalitarianism, Revolution and Political Act.Marc De Kesel - 2004 - Studies in East European Thought 56 (4):299-334.
    iek's thinking departs from the Lacanian claim that we live in a symbolic order, not a real world, and that the Real is what we desire, but can never know or grasp. There is a fundamental virtuality of reality that points to the lie in every truth-claim, and there are two ways of dealing with this:repression and denial. An ideology, a system or a regime becomes totalitarian when it denies the virtual character of both its world and its subject (democracy (...)

    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 (...)

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.

    Agalma at the Void: Towards a Theory of the Evental Sublime.Adam Drury - 2011 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 5 (2).
    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 (...)

    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.

    Following Atheism: On a Debate in Contemporary Psychoanalytic Theory.Thomas Brockelman - 2012 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 6 (1).
    Setting out from a debate between two contemporary Lacanians about the religious significance of psychoanalysis, this paper argues that what such analysis really has to offer to a discussion of religion is purloined by the current round of academic polemics about its "revival." This argument is built in three steps: in the first, I demonstrate that the "site" of a meeting of psychoanalysis and religion is the "fundamental fantasy," tracing that concept's history from its Freudian pre-history through Lacan and showing (...)

    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 (...)

Particular emphasis will be put on the one of these, the perverse logic of enjoyment, which can allow us to better captured the predatory journalistic strategy that, by its strange peculiarity and elusiveness, has encouraged scholarly experts in popular cultural and media studies to admit the difficulties (...)

    The Question of Lacanian Ontology: Badiou and Žižek as Responses to Seminar XI.Michael Austin - 2011 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 5 (2).
    In Seminar XI, Lacan begins by saying that the seminar will be a response to the question of ontology posed at the close of Seminar X. What emerges from this question is a new priority given to thinking the Real, as well as his famous myth of the lamella and his clearest writings on the death drive. This paper proposes that the metaphysical works of both Žižek and Badiou aim to answer the same question posed by Jacques-Alain Miller, “What is (...)

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 essay takes these questions up as a preliminary to elaborating Zizek's understanding of the (...)

    Beckett's Ticklish Characters.Federico Bellini - 2009 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 3 (3).
    In this paper I attempt to show how Žižek’s theories can serve as a useful tool in interpreting in a new way Samuel Beckett’s works, and in particular his novels. In order to do that, I will focus my attention on his novel The Unnamable and on the way its main character is constructed. This has been typically understood as representing a fragmented or decentered self, and thus as a form of critique of the Cartesian subject, ‘the spectre that is (...)

    If it is characteristic of obsessional neurosis that an object can be an object of desire only insofar as it is impossible object, this impossibility is also traced at the basis of any desire. The obsessional however specializes in setting things up "so that the object of his desire becomes the signifier of this impossibility". By aiming at or erasing the desire of the other, the obsessional depreciates his own desire. Žižek provides us with a rather classic version of this (...)

    My essay examines how Slavoj Žižek sets Lacanian psychoanalysis into active equivalence with Marxism to produce a new theoretical discourse in the history of Western Marxism, a ‘cultural psychoanalysis.’ I explore how Marxism adheres to psychoanalysis in Žižek’s theory to the point where we can speak of a new theoretical discourse, a Lacanian Marxism. I investigate how Žižek finds the meditations necessary to allow a combination of Marxism and psychoanalysis by outlining his transcoding of Marxism through the Lacanian concepts of (...)

    In this article I aim at analysing Žižek's recent critique of Badiou's notion of repetition with regard to the political subject. Furthermore, it is my intention to show that Žižek's own arguments should in their turn be supplemented with a detailed consideration of the function of repetition in Lacan's notion of the fundamental fantasy. This will finally allow me to indicate how, leaving aside the specific question of political subjectivization, it is only by means of a psychoanalytic approach to repetition (...)

    Symptomal Knots and Evental Ruptures: Žižek, Badiou and Discerning the Indiscernible.Levi Bryant - 2007 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 1 (2).
    This article argues that Badiou's account of subjects of truth-procedures requires the Lacanian subject in order to be intelligible. Without an account of the Lacanian subject as void and precarious with respect to all identifications, Badiou is unable to explain how the subject of truth procedures is able to throw off its identifications and symbolic roles that characterize its existence as an individual or body in the situation, taking on, instead, fidelity to the truth that follows from an event.

    Book Review: The Most Sublime Hysteric: Hegel with Lacan by Slavoj Žižek. [REVIEW]Jodie Matthews - unknown
    Available in English for the first time, this publication from Slavoj Žižek represents a re-worked version of one of his earliest works. Hard to place amongst his recent works, perhaps the purpose of publishing this early work is to make us realise that the 1980s Žižek was already then the one we have come to recognise, just as the content of the book retroactively makes Hegel a Lacanian avant la lettre, writes Jodie Matthews.

In doing so, we must combine a structural approach with the more traditional approach drawing on the category of reification.
