“We’re not dreamers. We’re awaking from a dream turning into a nightmare. We’re not destroying anything. We’re watching the system destroy itself.”
Idiosyncratic and fiercely polemical, Slavoj Žižek is a Slovenian-born political philosopher currently serving as International Director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities. He has become world-renowned for his fearless overturning of the liberal left’s founding assumptions. Live from Llubjana, Žižek joins us to discuss his forthcoming book, Sex and the Failed Absolute, which in his characteristically striking style offers a new definition of dialectical materialism while challenging some of today’s most influential thinkers.
