In the most rigorous articulation of his philosophical system to date, Slavoj ï¿½iï¿½ek provides nothing short of a new definition of dialectical materialism.
In forging this new materialism, ï¿½iï¿½ek critiques and challenges not only the work of Alain Badiou, Robert Brandom, Joan Copjec, Quentin Meillassoux, and Julia Kristeva (to name but a few), but everything from popular science and quantum mechanics to sexual difference and analytic philosophy. Alongside striking images of the Mï¿½bius strip, the cross-cap, and the Klein bottle, ï¿½iï¿½ek brings alive the Hegelian triad of being-essence-notion. Radical new readings of Hegel, and Kant, sit side by side with characteristically lively commentaries on film, politics, and culture.
