Since the deaths of Jacques Derrida in 2004 and Jean Baudrillard in 2007 ... Zizek has quickly cemented his position as the world's prominent philosopher and cultural theorist. (Matthew Taunton New Statesman)
Zizek is ... the most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in Europe for some decades (Terry Eagleton)

writes with an engaging eloquence that is appealing to the reader, despite the highbrow nature of the work...Zizek displays an originality here which shows why he is one of the more respected philosophers in the western world.

Buchbeschreibung Profile Books Jan 2009, 2009. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 198x128x17 mm. Neuware - Zizek argues that the physical violence we see is often generated by the systemic violence that sustains our political and economic systems. With the help of eminent philosophers like Marx, Engel and Lacan, as well as frequent references to popular culture, he examines the real causes of violent outbreaks like those seen in Israel and Palestine and in terrorist acts around the world. Ultimately, he warns, doing nothing is often the most violent course of action we can take. 218 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781846680274
