Modern audiovisual media have spawned a 'plague of fantasies', electronically inspired phantasms that cloud the ability to reason and prevent a true understanding of a world increasingly dominated by abstractions--whether those of digital technology or the speculative market. Into this arena, enters A iA ek: equipped with an agile wit and the skills of a prodigious scholar, he confidently ranges among a dazzling array of cultural references--explicating Robert Schumann as deftly as he does John Carpenter--to demonstrate how the modern condition blinds us to the ideological basis of our lives.

Recensioner i media

"Zizek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation" New Yorker "The giant of Ljubljana provides the best intellectual high since Anti-Oedipus." The Village Voice "The Elvis of cultural theory." Chronicle of Higher Education "Unafraid of confrontation and with a near limitless grasp of pop symbolism" The Times "Zizek is a thinker who regards nothing as outside his field: the result is deeply interesting and provocative." Guardian "The most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in many decades." Terry Eagleton "Zizek is one of the few living writers to combine theoretical rigor with compulsive readability." Publishers Weekly"
