A study of Slavoj ?i?eks political philosophy. Focusing on the combination of psychoanalytic theory and philosophy, the book offers an overview of ?i?eks analysis of contemporary society. In five chapters, the reader is introduced to ?i?eks method, his view of the political impasse in the postmodern world, and his suggestion for a way ahead to renewed action and political invention. Rich in examples, the book gives an engaging and entertaining tour around the landscape of ?i?eks political endeavour, while at the same time insisting on a more systematic and piecemeal approach than the Slovenian tends to offer himself.
