"Instead of making social critique, we are more and more making self critique, sometimes to the point of destruction." - Renata Salecl
Renata Salecl is a philosopher, psychoanalyst and sociologist, who is a senior researcher at the University of Ljubljana and holds a professorship at Birkbeck College. She is closely associated with the critical legal studies movement, and was awarded the title Slovenian Woman Scientist of the Year by the Slovenian Ministry of Science in 2010. Salecl has written books on anxiety, postmodernism and sex, which have been translated into 15 languages. Her latest book, The Tyranny of Choice explores how late-capitalism's insistence on individuating yourself through personal choices can prevent the possibility of social change.
