    The premise of Zizek’s theory is that the subjective violence we see – violence with a clear identifiable agent – is only the tip of an iceberg made up of ‘systemic’ violence, which is essentially the catastrophic consequence of the smooth functioning of our economic and political systems.

     

    With the help of Marx, Engels, Sartre, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Lacan, Brecht and many more, Zizek examines the hidden causes of violence, delving into the supposed ‘divine violence’ which propels suicide bombers and the unseen ‘systemic’ violence which lies behind outbursts, from Parisian suburbia to New Orleans. For Zizek, the controversial truth is that sometimes doing nothing is the most violent thing you can do. He calls for a forceful confrontation with the vacuity of today’s democracies – using an unconventional plethora of references: Hitchcock, Orwell, Fukuyama, Freud and more.

    O avtorju

    -Slavoj Žižek-

    Slavoj Žižek je slovenski filozof. Rojen je bil 21. marca 1949 v Ljubljani. Leta 1971 je na ljubljanski Filozofski fakulteti diplomiral iz filozofije in sociologije, na isti ustanovi pa še magistriral in doktoriral (1981). Drugič je doktoriral na temo psihoanalize v Parizu.

    Žižek je eden izmed filozofov z največjo publiciteto v svetovnem merilu. Njegova področja delovanja so (lacanovska) psihoanaliza, politična filozofija, nemški idealizem itd. Kot raziskovalec je zaposlen na Filozofski fakulteti v Ljubljani, vendar je njegova funkcija na tej ustanovi bolj častna, saj nima rednih predavanj. Kot redni profesor predava na »European Graduate School for Media & Communications« (Saas Fee, New York, Dresden), kot gostujoči profesor pa obiskuje pomembne univerze vseh držav sveta. Posebno priljubljenost dosega v ZDA, na Japonskem in v Južni Ameriki.

    Žižek je avtor več kot sto izvirnih in prevedenih knjig. Velik je tudi nabor tem, ki se jih loteva: od politične apatije sodobnega življenja do šale o možu, ki
     se boji, da ga bo pojedla kokoš; od etičnega junaštva Keanuja Reevesa v Hitrosti do tega, kako straniščne školjke razkrivajo narodovo dušo.« Bil je učenec in je interpret Jacquesa Lacana, piše pa o fundamentalizmu, ljudski toleranci, politični korektnosti, globalizaciji, subjektivizaciji, človekovih pravicah, Leninu, mitih, Alfredu Hitchcocku itd.
