The savage madness of Slavoj Žižek - Telegraph.co.uk (blog) | lacan and kesha thesis | Scoop.it
Why, over 20 years after the fall of Communism in the East, are so many of our new culture heroes in the West philotyrannical intellectuals? A case in point – prominent in every high street book shop, ubiquitous on university reading lists, feted on campuses – is the "intellectual rock-star", cultural critic and authoritarian communist Slavoj Žižek. Bizarrely, after all those trails, political famines, labour camps and crimes against humanity a layer of western intellectuals – one can also mention Alain Badiou, Michael Hardt, Toni Negri, Gianni Vattimo, Alessandro Russo, Alberto Toscano, Terry Eagleton, and Bruno Bosteels – are inviting us to fall in love all over again with “the Idea of Communism”.

The Real Imaginary: Lacan's Joyce | berfrois

The Real Imaginary: Lacan's Joyce | berfrois | lacan and kesha thesis | Scoop.it
In his twenty-third seminar, Jacques Lacan framed the sinthome as a radical unknotting of the symbolic, the imaginary and the real. He offered le sinthome not as a mere technical addition to the battery of psychoanalytic tools, but as a concept of paramount importance, for its unique adequation to what he found to be a significant change in the conventional relation of subject to culture and of ego to other. [1] The sinthome denoted for Lacan a new way that the subject could confront the challenge posed by the rancid politics of our time

jean lievens's curator insight, April 6, 2013 1:27 PM

I loved Hitchcock’s Vertigo; I really hated this book... Keen misrepresents the ideas of his opponents and his book is full of factual mistakes. Examples: Keen speaks of Rachel Bosford instead of Rachel Botsman, according to Keen; Hitler came to power in 1936 (in stead of 1933)... Unbelievable, really. Well, his former book was called "the cult of the amateur" - how appropriate.

Slavoj Zizek - How to Read Lacan - "God is Dead, but He Doesn't Know It": Lacan Plays with Bobok

In order to properly understand this passage, one has to read it together with another thesis of Lacan. These two dispersed statements should be treated as the pieces of a puzzle to be combined into one coherent proposition. It is only their interconnection (plus the reference to the Freudian dream of the father who doesn't know that he is dead) [2] that enables us to deploy Lacan's basic thesis in its entiret
