    Traversing the Fantasy: Critical Responses to Slavoj Zizek.Geoff M. Boucher, Jason Glynos & Matthew Sharpe - unknown
    Slavoj Zizek is one of the most provocative and important thinkers writing in contemporary philosophy. This book is an engaged debate with Zizek. It contains a series of specially commissioned critical essays from an impressive collection of contributors covering the full extent of his oeuvre. Essays examine Zizek on cultural theory, film studies, ethics, political theory, social theory, Kant and Lacanian psychoanalysis. In the spirit of Zizek‘s own interventions, these essays critically interrogate his ideas, challenging him to respond directly which (...)

    Radical Democratic Ethos, or, What is an Authentic Political Act?Jason Glynos - 2003 - Contemporary Political Theory 2 (2):187-208.
    In this paper I explore some connections between two anti-essentialist approaches to democratic theory — Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe's hegemonic approach and Slavoj Zizek's psychoanalytic approach. I argue that a central virtue of Laclau and Mouffe's hegemonic approach to democracy is that it clearly emphasizes the ethos of democracy, not simply the institutions of democracy. This shift transforms democracy, now conceived as radical democratic ethos, into a site of further research about how to make our understanding of its conditions (...)

    Self-Transgression and Freedom.Jason Glynos - 2003 - Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 6 (2):1-20.
    This essay sketches out the way in which Lacanian psychoanalysis can have a productive bearing on the analysis of political issues in general, and questions of freedom in particular. The article takes its bearings from a broad research problem ? the problem of self-transgression ? that can be said to structure the work of a wide range of social and political analysts. The problem of self-transgression aims to capture an intuition about those kinds of situations where an individual or group (...)

  7. Fantasy and Identity in Critical Political Theory.Jason Glynos - forthcoming - Filozofski Vestnik.
    In this essay I explore the appeal of the psychoanalytic category of fantasy for critical political theory, by which I mean a theory grounded in a political ontology that offers a rationale for both normative and ideological critique. I draw on the work of William Connolly, Susan Faludi, Jacqueline Rose, and Judith Butler, among others, to consider the explanatory and critical implications of the concept of fantasy for questions of identity, and political identity in particular. I argue that fantasy is (...)

    Sexual Identity, Identification and Difference: A Psychoanalytic Contribution to Discourse Theory.Jason Glynos - 2000 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 26 (6):85-108.
    This essay focuses on an issue arising from within an anti-essentialist perspective on sexual identity: how is it possible to explain the political impetus inhering in a category such as ‘woman’ without having recourse to a set of positive properties that would somehow fix her identity in advance? I examine how a particular theoretical outlook, social postmodernism, attempts to address this issue, and argue that, ultimately, social postmodernism generates its own impasse which I call social foundationalism – an impasse which (...)
