Two Birds With One Stone: Lacan, Zizek

by Praterviolet on May 6, 2009

If you are not an academic but wished (consciously or subconsciously) that you were, this is a terrific introduction to both Lacan's key concepts and Zizek's perverse readings of everything. Lacan does the legwork, and then Zizek points out the implicit (Lacan really meant to point it out) Derridean critique of every concept/category/move/emotion, that every move is possible because of other compensatory moves which are not successful, of course.
