Christopher Kul-Want & Piero

Introducing Graphic Guides  

‘The most dangerous philosopher in the west’
‘The superstar messiah of the new left’
‘The Elvis of cultural theory’

Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek inspires dramatic headlines. But what does he really think?

Charting his meteoric rise in popularity, Christopher Kul-Want and Piero explore Žižek’s timely analyses of today’s global crises concerning ecology, mounting poverty, war, civil unrest and revolution.

Covering topics from philosophy and ethics, politics and ideology, religion and art, to literature, cinema, corporate marketing, quantum physics and virtual reality, Introducing Slavoj Žižek deftly explains Žižek’s virtuoso ability to transform apparently outworn ideologies – Communism, Marxism and psychoanalysis – into a new theory of freedom and enjoyment.
