‘Žižek: Beyond Foucault’ by Fabio Vighi & Heiko Feldner



Staging a confrontation between perhaps the most influential figures in poststructuralism and psychoanalysis, Vighi and Feldner establish their fundamental sites of overland and opposition as well as the stakes involved in a choice for one rather than the other. Adherents of Foucault can thus no longer avoid the critical challenge of Žižek’s thought to their basic notions of archeology, genealogy and discourse analysis. As it changes the fundamental terms of academic and political thought, Žižek: Beyond Foucault is a vitally important intervention in contemporary politics.
