The Sublime Object of Ideology, Slavoj Žižek (1989)

18912

Zizek’s first book. Very difficult to penetrate, much less enjoy, for dozens of pages at a time. But having read several of his later and more accessible works I remained committed to pushing on. Lacan and Hegel. Lacan and Hegel. Lacan and Hegel. It actually works.. which is to say I am now in a position to better understand these two essential ingredients in Zizek’s oeuvre: Hegelian dialectics and Lacanian psychoanalysis. Now to get a grip on his approach to Marx and Christianity. Throw in Alfred Hitchcock, Batman, and Kung Fu Panda: mix thoroughly.
