From the Publisher"Zizek’s playful writing style presents the reader withapposite and amusing examples, from Franz Kafka to Jane Austen,which clarify and enliven his arguments. Zizek’s book burstswith reflection, observation, wit and raw iconoclastic conclusions.Zizek’s magnetic style and radical ideas are a welcome andinspiring breath of fresh air. It is possible that throughrevealing how we make sense of our past The Most SublimeHysteric may help us to cultivate a better future."
"The Most Sublime Hysteric clearly outlines the logic at the basisof the thought of the most important philosopher of our time. Withcare and precision, Zizek conjoins Hegel and Lacan, building thecomponents of his own unique and powerful philosophical system.This long-awaited translation of Zizek's doctoral dissertationprovides a valuable new point of entry to his work, appropriate forexperts and newcomers alike."
Jodi Dean, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
