First as Tragedy, Then as Farce (2009)
language
English
3.82 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Zizek always makes interesting points, maybe not correct, but interesting. Well worth reading to see the world through the looking glass, in a sense. This particular book is outdated now and while the material conditions of the global economy (or global inequality) have not gotte...
Violence (2008)

review 1: Zizek is really all over the place in this book. I don't have a philosophical background so some ideas may have gone over my head, but many pop culture references or analyses he makes feel very strange. His bits on Israel/Palestine, New Orleans, and Tolerance/Liberalism were inte...
Dalla tragedia alla farsa. Ideologia della crisi e superamento del capitalismo (2009)
language
English
3.82 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Despite the fact that the book offers many interesting ideas to think about I have to say that after reading it I understood mainly two things:1) Zizek's style of writting is extremely chaotic: it reminds me of a crazy "bricolage" where many small and different pieces are assmble...
Primero como tragedia, después como farsa (2000)

English

review 1: This book is Žižek howling into the wind. I am old fashioned though and am precisely the type of reader the author warns about, the same reader he charges in the first paragraph to toss the book aside if Communism = bad in his mind. Well, sorry. I am politically and culturally na...
Od tragedii do farsy, czyli jak się historia powtarza (2009)
language
English

review 1: I can't help it. Zizek infuriates me. And I like it. This book is really readable for those of us who are more comfortable with the jargon of political economy than the jargon of psychoanalysis (there's a bit about the Big Other -- which I actually found useful -- but otherwise L...
Primeiro como tragédia, depois como farsa (2009)

English

review 1: When I was in college, professors would tell us about ideologues who wrote apologetic books about how 'real existing socialism' was not the same as the 'socialism intended by Karl Marx'. I always imagined that reading these accounts would have to be kind of sad, or even funny. T...
Living in the End Times (2010)

English

review 1: A hipotese comunista torna-se cada vez mais plausivel a medida que o capitalismo global que manipula estados nacionais e seus sistemas politicos e economico (Grecia, Argentina, China, Vietnam, Estado Unidos) ganha forca como alternativa a solucao da crise frente a solucoes nacion...
The Year of Dreaming Dangerously (2012)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Through references to past philosophers and modern pop culture, along with his own interpretations, Zizek dissects the protests and uprisings of 2011 to explore how they developed and what kind of impact they will have as we move forward.Zizek's arguments are generally easy to re...
La violenza invisibile (2007)
language
English
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Slavoj Žižek is the most destructive philosopher but perhaps the most fearless and honest. Now I know why he is being called as 'Elvis Presley of social philosophy.' His provocative and original defence for communism to resolve environmental crisis would elevate him to be the imp...
Sobre la violencia. Seis reflexiones marginales (2009)
language
English
3.9 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Zizek expone un análisis sobre la violencia desde una reflexión al margen de su manifestación más palpable: la violencia física. Se enfoca en lo que llama violencia objetiva y como esta es una de las causas detrás de la violencia subjetiva (física) como consecuencia de la pervers...

review 1: ترجمه فارسي ضعيف و در برخي قسمتها نامفهوم هست و مفاهيم رو گنگ كردهنگاه كتاب به خشونت طي يك دسته بندي موضوعي از جهات مختلف بررسي شده و ارجاعات متعدد به فيلم و نمايشنامه و نظريات فلسفي توي تمام فصل ها وجود داره كه بعضا ازاردهنده استبه عنوان يك زاويه ديد متفاوت به خشونت و گشتن به دن...
Vivere alla fine dei tempi (2010)
language
English

review 1: Oh Slavoj, you dirty communist. I was so happy living my life as a middle class graduate student and you had to come piss on my parade with your theories of capitalism, dirty jokes, and psychoanalytic Lacanian frenchness. As Hitchtens would say; How dare you sir! I mean, your vas...
Living in the end of times (2000)
language
English
3.81 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Confuse, sometimes difficult to read, a miscellaneous of references and pop culture, so many topics mixed that can turn it a little bit misguiding.Yet, a very interesting read, with so many brilliant insights and clever passages which will utterly make readers rethink about many...

review 1: "Don't fall in love with yourselves" ~ Zizek to occupy wall street. Wow.Amazing book, allowed me to answer some of my own personal questions as to what the entire occupy movement was and why it collapsed so quickly upon itself. As well as all the global protests from the left fro...
O ano em que sonhamos perigosamente (2012)
language
English
3.77 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This probably one of Slavoj's easier books to read. The focus is on the year 2011, with the Arab Spring, London Riots, Occupy Wall Street and other events that happened. Slavoj analyzes these events, what they might mean, and the good and the bad that came from them. His take is ...

language

review 1: Αρχικά να πω κάτι για τον Ζιζεκ. Όταν είδα τον είδα πρώτη φορά σε βίντεο, δεν μπορούσα να βγάλω αυτή την αίσθηση ότι κάτι μου θυμίζει. Τελικά, πριν λίγες μέρες κατάλαβα. Μου θυμίζει τον πρώτο μου μαθηματικό στο φροντιστήριο, που ήταν ψευδός, τρομερό μυαλό αν και αρκετά εκκεντρικό...
Acontecimiento (2014)
language
English
3.63 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Still reading - but thoroughly enjoying this so far. Zizek touches on many of his familiar riffs, but due to the "to-be-read-while-in-transit" theme, he keeps it pretty concrete and layman-friendly. At the same time, there are a few variations I have noticed so far; a few new tre...
