p Slavoj Zizek a leading intellectual in the new social movements of Eastern Europe provides a virtuoso reading of the psycholanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan through the works of contemporary popular culture from horror fiction and detective thrillers to popular romances and Hitchcock films br br Zizek inverts current pedagogical strategies to explain the difficult philosophical underpinnings of the French theoretician and practician who revolutionized our view of psychoanalysis He approaches Lacan through the motifs and works of contemporarypopular culture from Hitchcock s Vertigo to Stephen King s Pet Sematary fromMcCullough s An Indecent Obsession to Romero s Return of the Living Dead astrategy of looking awry that recalls the exhilarating and vital experience ofLacan Zizek discovers fundamental Lacanian categories the triadImaginary Symbolic Real the object small a the opposition of drive and desire the split subject at work in horror fiction in detective thrillers in romances in the mass media s perception of ecological crisis and above all in Alfred Hitchcock s films The playfulness of Zizek s text however is entirely different from that associated with the deconstructive approach made famous by Derrida By clarifying what Lacan is saying as well as what he is not saying Zizek is uniquely able to distinguish Lacan from the poststructuralists who so often claim him Slavoj Zizek is a Researcher in the Institute of Sociology at the University of Ljubljana Slovenia His work has been published in France and in Yugoslavia where runningas a proreform candidate he narrowly missed being elected to the presidency of therepublic of Slovenia p, The Parallax View is Slavoj Zizek s most substantial theoretical work to appear in many years Zizek himself describes it as his magnum opus Parallax can be defined as the apparent displacement of an object caused by a change in observational position Zizek is interested in the parallax gap separating two points between which no synthesis or mediation is possible linked by an impossible short circuit of levels that can never meet From this consideration of parallax Zizek begins a rehabilitation of dialectical materialism Modes of parallax can be seen in different domains of today s theory from the wave particle duality in quantum physics to the parallax of the unconscious in Freudian psychoanalysis between interpretations of the formation of the unconscious and theories of drives In The Parallax View Zizek with his usual astonishing erudition focuses on three main modes of parallax the ontological difference the ultimate parallax that conditions our very access to reality the scientific parallax the irreducible gap between the phenomenal experience of reality and its scientific explanation which reaches its apogee in today s brain sciences according to which nobody is home in the skull just stacks of brain meat a condition Zizek calls the unbearable lightness of being no one and the political parallax the social antagonism that allows for no common ground Between his discussions of these three modes Zizek offers interludes that deal with more specific topics including an ethical act in a novel by Henry James and anti anti Semitism The Parallax View not only expands Zizek s Lacanian Hegelian approach to new domains notably cognitive brain sciences but also provides the systematic exposition of the conceptual framework that underlies his entire work Philosophical and theological analysis detailed readings of literature cinema and music coexist with lively anecdotes and obscene jokes, No description available, b Philosopher cultural critic and agent provocateur Slavoj i ek constructs a fascinating new framework to look at the forces of violence in our world b br b b br b b Using history philosophy books movies Lacanian psychiatry and jokes Slavoj i ek examines the ways we perceive and misperceive violence Drawing from his unique cultural vision i ek brings new light to the Paris riots of he questions the permissiveness of violence in philanthropy in daring terms he reflects on the powerful image and determination of contemporary terrorists br br Violence i ek states takes three forms subjective crime terror objective racism hate speech discrimination and systemic the catastrophic effects of economic and political systems and often one form of violence blunts our ability to see the others raising complicated questions br br Does the advent of capitalism and indeed civilization cause more violence than it prevents Is there violence in the simple idea of the neighbour And could the appropriate form of action against violence today simply be to contemplate to think br br Beginning with these and other equally contemplative questions i ek discusses the inherent violence of globalization capitalism fundamentalism and language in a work that will confirm his standing as one of our most erudite and incendiary modern thinkers
