Review by Tony Myers

Picking up on one of the themes of For They Know Not What They Do, Žižek here attends to the ideology of cynicism - the fetishist 'I know very well ... but all the same .... 'formulation which is one of the mainstays of his work. The book is structured around five chap- ters, each of which endeavours to explain a fundamental Lacanian concept - letter, woman, repetition, phallus and father. Hollywood is once again the lure in this text as Zižek elaborates each concept with reference to popular culture. However, as with Looking Awry, the familiarity of the examples does not necessarily make this the most accessible of his books to read.

Review by Tony Myers

This is exactly the same as the first edition of the book apart from an added chapter on the concept of reality. Using the film The Matrix as an example, Žižek looks at the relationship between the Symbolic and the Real and explains why the big Other does not exist.
