An exciting and 'exhilarating' study guide or general introduction to Slavoj Zizek's Political Philosophy with a distinctive focus on Subjectivity
The Subject of Politics provides a new study of Slavoj Zizek's political philosophy. Focusing on the combination of psychoanalytic theory and philosophy, the book offers an overview of Zizek's analysis of contemporary society. In five chapters, the reader is introduced to Zizek's method, his view of the political impasse in the postmodern world, and his suggestion for a way ahead to renewed action and political invention. Rich in examples, the book gives an engaging and entertaining tour around the landscape of Zizek's political endeavour, while at the same time insisting on a more systematic and piecemeal approach than the Slovenian tends to offer himself.
"... a forceful and marvelously well written study of Slavoj Zizek's political philosophy. Animated by the authors” own profound engagement in political thinking the book provides an exhilarating guide through the crucial and most interesting points of Zizek's political thought...." Dr. Alenka Zupancic, Ljubljana.
