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?
In which Slavoj Zizek reacts to Keyboard Cat and other internet phenomena.
“I cannot tell you how proud I am to be in contact with you. Your acts are well thought, and based on deep insights into how oppressive power works, how it has to rely on a hidden obscene agenda, violating its own rules.”
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.
Slavoj Zizek, Slovenian critical theorists extraordinaire, has drawn the ire of academics after a blogger alleged that he had plagiarized from a white supremacist magazine.
The open-access journal “The International Journal of Zizek Studies,” has just released their latest issue, a special issue on “Less Than Nothing.”
Slavoj Zizek fans and haters can finally agree on something: he probably doesn’t like any of you.
Published in March, 2014, “Zizek’s Jokes” is a small book that claims to have captured the entirety of Slavoj Zizek’s published jokes in English, variations and all. Some of the jokes provide hilarious insight into Hegelian dialectics, Lacanian psychoanalysis or ideology. Others are just funny.
