‘Traversing the Fantasy: Critical Responses to Slavoj Žižek’ by Geoff M. Boucher, Jason Glynos & Matthew Sharpe

Slavoj Žižek is one of the most provocative and important thinkers writing in contemporary philosophy. This book is an engaged debate with Žižek. It contains a series of specially commissioned critical essays from an impressive collection of contributors covering the full extent of his oeuvre. Essays examine Žižek on cultural theory, film studies, ethics, political theory, social theory, Kant and Lacanian psychoanalysis. In the spirit of Žižek’s own interventions, these essays critically interrogate his ideas, challenging him to respond directly which he does in an extended polemical reply that concludes the collection. This volume represents an exciting and important contribution to contemporary theoretical debate and adds significantly to the growing literature on Žižek.
