Description

Dubbed "The Elvis of Philosophy," Slavoj Zizeck is both a serious revolutionary and an absurdist prankster, published in academic journals and Abercrombie & Fitch catalogs. Besides his work on popular culture, Zizek is concerned with politics and ideology. Introducing Slavoj Zizek reveals a provocateur whose work on Lacanian psychoanalysis collides with Marxist philosophy--creating the world's hippest philosopher.

Christopher Kul-Want is course director of the MA in Fine Art at Byam Shaw School of Art, London.

Piero is an illustrator, artist, and graphic designer whose work has been exhibited in the Royal College of Art, London.
