Praise

Praise for Slavoj Žižek
“Žižek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation.”
The New Yorker
 
“The giant of Ljubljana provides the best intellectual high science since Anti-Oedipus.”
The Village Voice

“Žižek is a thinker who regards nothing as outside his field: the result is deeply interesting and provocative.”
Guardian

“The most dangerous philosopher in the West.”
—Adam Kirsch, The New Republic

“Exhilarating, inspiring, thought-provoking.”
—David Schneider, Prospect

“Addictively eclectic . . . He contrives to leave the reader, as usual, both exhilarated and disoriented, standing in the middle of a scorched plain strewn with the rubble of smashed idols.”
—Steven Poole, The Guardian

“Outrageous, provocative and entertaining.”
—Terry Eagleton

“A monument to imaginative, risk-taking and rigorous scholarship.”
Times Higher Education Supplement

“Žižek is one of the few living writers to combine theoretical rigor with compulsive readability.”
Publishers Weekly
