Editorial Reviews

The New Republic
The most dangerous philosopher in the West.— Adam Kirsch
Adam Kirsch - The New Republic
“The most dangerous philosopher in the West.”
Steven Poole - The Guardian
“Fierce brilliance … scintillating.”
The Observer
“Žižek is to today what Jacques Derrida was to the 80s: the thinker of choice for Europe’s young intellectual vanguard.”
Helen Brown - Daily Telegraph
“Such passion, in a man whose work forms a shaky, cartoon rope-bridge between the minutiae of popular culture and the big abstract problems of existence, is invigorating, entertaining and expanding enquiring minds around the world.”
