In Zizek's long-awaited magnum opus, he theorizes the "parallax gap" in the ontological, the scientific, and the political--and rehabilitates dialectical materialism.

Portrait

Slavoj Zizek is a philosopher and cultural critic. He is the author of more than thirty books, including Looking Awry: An Introduction to Jacques Lacan through Popular Culture, The Puppet and the Dwarf: The Perverse Core of Christianity, The Parallax View, and (with John Milbank) The Monstrosity of Christ: Paradox or Dialect, these four published by the MIT Press.

Pressestimmen

"In this huge, thrilling book, Slavoj i ek enacts a dazzling display of philosophy as performance art, delighting in upsetting readers' expectations, inserting sly jokes, and castigating the 'boring' political analyses of just about everyone... i ek is a thinker who regards nothing as outside his field: the result is deeply interesting and provocative." The Guardian "A remarkable demonstration of continental philosophical and psychoanalytical pyrotechnics. More provocative ideas per page than normally found in whole books by the dull anglophone empiricists who find him so threatening." Paul A. Taylor Times Higher Education "Frankly, a magnum opus is exactly what i ekneeds right now... The Parallax View consolidates i ek's work as a whole and decisively moves it forward." In These Times "No one demonstrates the continued philosophical vitality of Marxism better than Slavoj i ek." Tikkun " i ek has only to clap eyes on a received truth to feel the intolerable itch to deface it... i ek is that rare breed of writer--one who is both lucid and esoteric. If he is sometimes hard to understand, it is because of the intricacy of his ideas, not because of a self-preening style." Terry Eagleton Artforum " i ek is one of the few living writers to combine theoretical rigor with compulsive readability, and his new volume provides perhaps the clearest elaboration of his theoretical framework thus far...This challenging book takes us on a roller-coaster ride whose every loop is a Mobius strip." Publishers Weekly "Frankly, a magnum opus is exactly what Zizek needs right now... The Parallax View consolidates Zizek's work as a whole and decisively moves it forward." In These Times "Zizek is one of the few living writers to combine theoretical rigor with compulsive readability, and his new volume provides perhaps the clearest elaboration of his theoretical framework thus far...This challenging book takes us on a roller-coaster ride whose every loop is a Mobius strip."
