Reviews

"Few thinkers illustrate the contradictions of contemporary capitalism better than Slavoj Žižek ... one of the world's best-known public intellectuals."--John Gray, New York Review of Books

"A serious attempt to reanimate or re-actualize Hegel."--Robert Pippin, author of Hegel's Idealism

"A gifted speaker--tumultuous, emphatic, direct--and he writes
as he speaks." --Jonathan Ree, Guardian

"The Hegel that Žižek loves is much like Žižek himself: a relentless iconoclast,
a restless wordsmith, an inventive thinker with a hatred of received wisdom,
an underminer of conventionally acknowledged truths. Žižek's Hegel is a kind
of cosmic prankster."--Bookforum

"A lucid rendering of modern society's debt to Hegel."--Publisher's Weekly

"The publication of Less Than Nothing is a major event in contemporary philosophy."--Hey, Small Press
