Sex And The Failed Absolute (eBook)
de I Ek Slavoj I Ek
Sobre o livro
In the most rigorous articulation of his philosophical system to date, Slavoj i ek provides nothing short of a new definition of dialectical materialism.In forging this new materialism, i ek critiques and challenges not only the work of Alain Badiou, Robert Brandom, Joan Copjec, Quentin Meillassoux, and Julia Kristeva (to name but a few), but everything from popular science and quantum mechanics to sexual difference and analytic philosophy. Alongside striking images of the M bius strip, the cross-cap, and the Klein bottle, i ek brings alive the Hegelian triad of being-essence-notion. Radical new readings of Hegel, and Kant, sit side by side with characteristically lively commentaries on film, politics, and culture.Here is i ek at his interrogative best.
