Slavoj Zizek is a Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic. His books include Less Than Nothing, The Sublime Object of Ideology, and many more.
"Zizek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation." - The New Yorker "The Elvis of cultural theory." - The Chronicle of Higher Education "One of the most innovative and exciting contemporary thinkers of the left." - Times Literary Supplement "Zizek is an influential thinker, and this short book offers an excellent entry into his thought." - David Gordon, Library Journal "[A] great provocateur and an immensely suggestive and even dashing writer... Zizek writes with passion and an aphoristic energy that is spellbinding." - Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times "The most dangerous philosopher in the West." - New Republic
