Reviews

"The Elvis of cultural theory."--Chronicle of Higher Education

"The giant of Ljubljana provides the best intellectual high since Anti-Oedipus."--The Village Voice

"The most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in many decades."--Terry Eagleton

"Unafraid of confrontation and with a near limitless grasp of pop symbolism"--The Times

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

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

"Žižek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation"--New Yorker
