More About Slavoj Zizek and Dialectical Materialism by Agon Hamza; Frank Ruda
 
 
 
Overview
Slavoj Zizek has been widely described as one of the most important and influential contemporary thinkers, philosophers, and cultural critics. However, despite the often critical attention and reviews his work garners in scholarly journal articles and books, systematic philosophical engagements with Zizek's thought remain a surprisingly rare phenomenon. Counteracting this dearth of substantive interaction, the contributors to this volume engage with crucial and fundamental aspects of Zizek's thought. The book follows a Hegelian motivation that is itself dear to Zizek, tracing the concept of dialectical materialism in his more recent work. It takes as its concrete starting point the most current, systematic elaborations of Zizek's thought, namely Absolute Recoil: Towards A New Foundation Of Dialectical Materialism as well as his magnum opus Less Than Nothing: Hegel and the Shadow of Dialectical Materialism. The contributors provide concrete elaborations of arguments developed within these two works, giving voice to their universal implications. The book also features an afterword by Zizek himself, in which he critically examines the work of Levi Bryant as well as the tradition of object-oriented-ontology on the whole.
