Abstract

Did Somebody Say Ideology? explores the philosophical, political, and psychoanalytic foundations of Slavoj Žižek’s work, almost two decades after his arrival on the international scene of contemporary philosophy with The Sublime Object of Ideology (1989). The book generally focuses on the understanding and applicability of Žižek’s theory of ideology, arguably the distinguishing and most original feature in his oeuvre so far. The first part contains six essays that carry out specific investigations into key aspects of the Slovenian philosopher’s work; the second part practices Žižek’s own injunction about Lacan (“discover Lacanian themes everywhere!”) on Žižek himself, employing his theories in different contexts and relating them to other thinkers. Each study in the present volume testifies to the extraordinary vitality of Žižek’s writing, demonstrating how his psychoanalytic brand of ideology critique fosters innovative research in a variety of intellectual fields and academic disciplines.
