Interrogating The Real
by Rex Butler, Scott Stephens, Slavoj Zizek
Description Interrogating the Real is the first volume of the collected writings of Slavoj Zizek - undoubtedly one of the world's leading contemporary cultural commentators. Drawing upon the full range of his prolific output, the articles here cover psychoanalysis, philosophy and popular culture. Thematically organised, the book is divided into three sections and includes a new preface by Zizek himself, as well as an introduction by the editors and a helpful glossary for those coming to Zizek's work for the first time. This collection, along with the second volume - The Universal Exception - is an excellent introduction to the work of one of the most inspiring, provocative and entertaining cultural critics at work today.
