  • Description or summary of the book: Slavoj Zizek is no ordinary philosopher. Approaching critical theory and psychoanalysis in a recklessly entertaining fashion, Zizek's critical eye alights upon a bewildering and exhilarating range of subjects, from the political apathy of contemporary life, to a joke about the man who thinks he's a chicken, from the ethicial heroism of Keanu Reeves in Speed, to what toilet designs reveal about the national psyche. Tony Myers provides a clear and engaging guide to Zizek's key ideas, explaining the main influences on Zizek's thought (most crucially his engagement with Lacanian psychoanalysis) using examples drawn from popular culture and everyday life. Myers outlines the key issues that Zizek's work has tackled, including:What is a Subject and why is it so important?The Imaginary, the Symbolic and the RealWhat is so terrible about Postmodernity?How can we distinguish reality from ideology?What is the relationship between men and women?Why is Racism always a fantasy?Slavoj Zizek is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the thought of the critic whom Terry Eagleton has described as 'the most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in Europe for some decades.
