Slavoj Žižek interview in The Guardian

Here. Too much information at times. Also disappointing that he avoids talking about his new book, especially when he has made the claim that he is tired of the jokes and wants his Hegel book to be the serious focus. See my comments on a talk of his in London in 2010.

  1. I think it is pretty much his style in general to commit to speak about one think, then not talk about it at all, while really talking about it all the time anyway. The oblique path seems to fit with his thought and psychoanalytic practice, no? He did this at the Birkbeck Critical Theory Summer School last year (2011), when he was supposed to talk about Plato and physics (which is the last section in the Hegel book). At first glance – I admit I haven’t cracked it open to read – it looks to be an altogether different book than he’s written in quite some time. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts if you get a chance to read the book.
