Anthologies providing context on contemporary thought and contemporary thinkers often err on the side of eulogy and submission to the reputation of the specific philosopher-hero. This collection of essays on the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj i ek at least has the advantage of being a precise opposite to this usual norm. In the same way that i ek's own work pulls no punches in its assessments and critiques of the other thinkers, so too this collection vehemently challenges the bases of i ek's myriad claims and counter-claims. Indeed, several of the essays adopt the strategy of personalizing the argument even towards ad hominem points (a strategy i ek lambasts in his Afterward). " - Dr Jones Irwin, The Philosopher
