Zizek: The Most Dangerous Philosopher in the West


A major interview with Slavoj Zizek and report on the Communism conference in Berlin in Der Spiegel:

At the end of Zizek’s lecture, an audience member asks a complicated and unintelligible question. “You made a good point,” says Zizek, and continues to talk about Hegel. His response has nothing to do with the question, which in turn has nothing to do with the lecture. The game could continue endlessly in the same vein. Suddenly Zizek pushes aside the cardboard screen and interrupts his Hegel lecture. “Okay! It doesn’t matter. As I said already, you made quite a good point. And the truth is that I have no response. In fact, my long-winded talk was also just an attempt to cover up that fact!” The audience seems grateful, now that Zizek has said that it’s okay to say that you don’t understand something and don’t have a clue as to what something is talking about. Even Zizek does it.
