Description: "Zizek leaves no social or cultural phenomenon untheorized, and is master of the counterintuitive observation."--The New Yorker Slavoj Zizek, the maverick philosopher, author of over 30 books, acclaimed as the "Elvis of cultural theory", and today's most controversial public intellectual. His work traverses the fields of philosophy, psychoanalysis, theology, history and political theory, taking in film, popular culture, literature and jokes--all to provide acute analyses of the complexities of contemporary ideology as well as a serious and sophisticated philosophy. His recent filmsThe Pervert's Guide to the CinemaandZizek!reveal a theorist at the peak of his powers and a skilled communicator. Now Verso is making his classic titles, each of which stand as a core of his ever-expanding life's work, available as new editions. Each is beautifully re-packaged, including new introductions from Zizek himself. Simply put, they are the essential texts for understanding Zizek's thought and thus cornerstones of contemporary philosophy. The Fragile Absolute: Or, Why Is the Christian Legacy Worth Fighting For?: Zizek argues that the subversive core of the Christian legacy is much too precious to be left to the fundamentalists. He argues that the foundation of a politics of universal emancipation can be found in St Paul, finding an unlikely ally in the reinvention of a twenty-first century Marxism.
