A virtual twelve-hour NONSTOP session of lectures by Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek, who is known as an author of a number of books and essays in which he develops Marxist and Hegelian philosophy crossed with a Lacanian revision of psychoanalysis.
As the crisis gains momentum, he is provided with increasingly greater space in the academic setting, but is also becoming an object of scorn for his neo-liberal colleagues.
While he used to travel the world and act as a kind of obscure successor of dead tradition, he is now marked as the most dangerous philosopher for the West.
So what was his year like?
What kind of questions did he have to face? How did audiences in various countries around the world receive him and how did he change his positions in the current socio-philosophical space? What kind of position can the philosopher take today vis-à-vis the majority view? What’s the effect of his “preaching” or “joking” that is spread via channels such as youtube – an information channel linking intellectual, consumers, people with fixed employment and the unemployed?
The answers and other questions are available at NONSTOP Žižek / 8 December / 10:00 am – 10:00 pm/ tranzitdisplay /
