From the Publisher"Slavoj Žižek has put the Soul back into philosophy."TLS
"Audacious and vertiginous, this book is everything one expectsfrom him, a heady mix of psychoanalysis, politics, theology,philosophy, and cultural studies that will leave the reader bothexhausted and exhilarated. For those wishing to gain a briefoverview of his central thesis or his application of Lacan tocultural studies, this is an informal and opportune text, anexcellent introduction to Žižek by Žižek."-Marcus Pound, Bristol University
"I am very impressed by how Žižek continues book afterbook to clarify, revise and deepen his thinking. This volume-idealfor the beginner, but with plenty to offer the practiced reader ofŽižek as well- is a superb snapshot of where this mostrestless, iconoclastic and essential of contemporary theoristsstands at the moment." – Henry Staten, University ofWashington, Seattle.
"Glyn Daly succeeds here in punctuating the febrile forward rushof one of the most distinctive and influential voices of our time,making it curl a little more deliberately around questions manywould want to ask Žižek responds with wily candour,offering up original and substantive theoretical speculationalongside bits of professional biography and new glosses on hisfavorite cultural examples. As invigorating and substantial aconversation as any one is likely to come upon. – JoanCopjec, author of Imagine There’s No Woman
