Slavoj Žižek: For A Left That Dares to Speak Its Name – October 8, 2019

FOR A LEFT THAT DARES TO SPEAK ITS NAME: Slavoj Žižek with Peter Brat­sis and Jere­my Glick

With irre­press­ible humour Slavoj Žižek dis­sects our cur­rent polit­i­cal and social cli­mate, dis­cussing every­thing from Jor­dan Peter­son and sex ‘uni­corns’ to Gre­ta Thun­berg and Chair­man Mao. This is Žižek’s attempt to elu­ci­date the major polit­i­cal issues of the day from a tru­ly rad­i­cal left position.”

Philoso­pher and cul­tur­al crit­ic Slavoj Žižek is inter­na­tion­al­ly rec­og­nized for his works on psy­cho­analy­sis, Hegel, cin­e­ma, polit­i­cal the­o­ry, and cur­rent events. He teach­es at the Euro­pean Grad­u­ate School and has been a vis­it­ing pro­fes­sor at Uni­ver­sité de Paris VIII, Colum­bia, and Prince­ton, among oth­er insti­tu­tions. He is founder and pres­i­dent of the Soci­ety for The­o­ret­i­cal Psy­cho­analy­sis in Ljubl­jana, Slove­nia, and is the author of many books on top­ics rang­ing from Chris­tian­i­ty to the films of David Lynch.
