About the Author

Slavoj Zizek (1949-) is one of the most prolific and charismatic cultural theorists working today. The author of such books as The Ticklish Subject and maker of documentaries such as The Pervert's Guide to Cinema, he is currently Senior Researcher at the Insititute for Social Sciences at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia.


'The thrill of reading Zizek ... arises in part from the collision between the insanity he finds everywhere in our psychic and social lives and the rigorous clarity with which he anatomizes its workings.' - Lingua Franca
