Publisher's Summary

Slavoj Žižek's first book is a provocative and original work looking at the question of human agency in a postmodern world. In a thrilling tour de force that made his name, he explores the ideological fantasies of wholeness and exclusion which make up human society.

👍🏻

the narration could be considered a little bit dull, but it is very clear and easy to understand the text through it. the text itself is great. I highly recommend this as an introduction to Slavoj's work.

Great Listen

I liked both content and narrator.
Zizek has an ability to suddenly make you aware of aspects of language and reasoning that are unaccessible in an Facebook world :-)

Bueller. Bueller.

This is NOT for the casual philosophical reader. If you aren't deeply into philosophical studies, steer clear. I stayed with it the whole way out of stubbornness. There were passages that piqued my interest and were enlightening to my admittedly limited mind. The problem being, this was simply above my pay grade.

Hegel x Lacan?

After watching many lectures from Slavoj I reached for this book. It was enjoyable, meaningful and the jokes helped to pinpoint an argument.
What Im thinking now is : ok , I have to re-listen or rather read this book now and , my second , bigger concern : what if I CANNOT read Lacan or Hegel without Zizek's interpretation? What if there is way more than Hegel meant but I cannot view it from Lacan / Zizek schema?
Time to spend 10 years reading Hegel I guess.
And was as hard as introduction
narrator's voice changed, like if he was recorded in 10 different recording rooms

Zizek but not by Zizek

The delivery and reason have little of the energy, passion, and intonation of Zizek.
