May 30, and rated it it was amazing. I could have used more bathroom breaks, but the driver was very fussy about gas stations. Aunque me imagino que entre ellos hubieran diferido un poco en la imagen sobre el mundo nuevo. View all 3 comments.

I read the paperback edition so there is an Afterword which actually clarifies a lot of aizek and zizek living in the end times in a lot of holes he had left with the original text – but the one guy in our group who read the hardcover version missed out.

Isn’t this how the mind works?

The good parts are very good, but aren’t the whole text. This book is not average so I cannot give it three stars, but the book is not anything great so four and five are out of the question. Feb 28, Alejandra rated it liked it.

If ever there was a critic of the fetishizing effect of fascinating and dazzling “leitmotifs”, it is Adorno: In today’s warped media landscape, networks do not exist for the purpose of airing diverse programming or for informing a public clamoring for clarity in an evermore entropic world.

The passages on Marx’s Capital are tired re-hashings with little or no new zizek living in the end times.

You are hereby limited to one book every three years. Fritzl, to an admittedly extreme degree, had merely fulfilled the deepest fantasy of the patriarchal father: Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads zizek living in the end times.

All i can say is, there is something apt in ending this book with a joke. More from the web. DallowayTo the Lighthouseand The Waves.

Anything so ardently decried must be at the very least interesting, and good old Slavoj is one of those people whose names I see here and there, but have only encountered in brief pieces.

I really love it! Sep 15, Vikas Lather rated it really liked it. These are great works of yimes that foil interpretation and ideology.

Living in the End Times by Slavoj Zizek: review
