Earlier this week, yet another plagiarism allegation was brought against Slavoj Zizek. The Slovenian cultural theorist, who previously apologized for accidentally plagiarizing a white supremacist magazine and later got in trouble with the New York Times for self-plagiarism, is now accused of lifting a paragraph from Jean-Marie Muller in his book “Violence.”
But the real question is: should we care?
Slavoj Zizek has been in the spotlight recently after a 2006 article he authored was outed as a near-copy of a 1999 book review in a white supremacist publication. Now, he responds to the allegations.
