Reviews

"Slavoj Zizek has put the Soul back into philosophy." TLS

"Audacious and vertiginous, this book is everything one expects from him, a heady mix of psychoanalysis, politics, theology, philosophy, and cultural studies that will leave the reader both exhausted and exhilarated. For those wishing to gain a brief overview of his central thesis or his application of Lacan to cultural studies, this is an informal and opportune text, an excellent introduction to Zizek by Zizek." -Marcus Pound, Bristol University

"I am very impressed by how Zizek continues book after book to clarify, revise and deepen his thinking. This volume-ideal for the beginner, but with plenty to offer the practiced reader of Zizek as well- is a superb snapshot of where this most restless, iconoclastic and essential of contemporary theorists stands at the moment." - Henry Staten, University of Washington, Seattle.

"Glyn Daly succeeds here in punctuating the febrile forward rush of one of the most distinctive and influential voices of our time, making it curl a little more deliberately around questions many would want to ask Zizek responds with wily candour, offering up original and substantive theoretical speculation alongside bits of professional biography and new glosses on his favorite cultural examples. As invigorating and substantial a conversation as any one is likely to come upon. - Joan Copjec, author of Imagine There's No Woman
