Rating
New or Used: $29.00
One of the signal features of our era is the re-emergence of the 'sacred' in all its different guises, from New Age paganism to the emerging religious sensitivity within cultural and political theory. The wager of Žižek's The Fragile Absolute - published here with a new preface by the author - is that Christianity and Marxism can fight together against the contemporary onslought of vapid spiritualism. The revolutionary core of the Christian legacy is too precious to be left to the fundamentalists.

Reviews

"Zizek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation" New Yorker "The giant of Ljubljana provides the best intellectual high since Anti-Oedipus." The Village Voice "The Elvis of cultural theory." Chronicle of Higher Education "Unafraid of confrontation and with a near limitless grasp of pop symbolism" The Times "Zizek is a thinker who regards nothing as outside his field: the result is deeply interesting and provocative." Guardian "The most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in many decades." Terry Eagleton "Zizek is one of the few living writers to combine theoretical rigor with compulsive readability." Publishers Weekly"
