Beschreibung

++i++ek and Heidegger offers a radical new interpretation of the work of Slavoj ++i++ek, one of the world's leading contemporary thinkers, through a study of his relationship with the work of Martin Heidegger. Thomas Brockelman argues that ++i++ek's oeuvre is largely a response to Heideggers philosophy of finitude, an immanent critique of it which pulls it in the direction of revolutionary praxis. Brockelman also finds limitations in ++i++ek's relationship with Heidegger, specifically in his ambivalence about Heideggers techno-phobia. Brockelmans critique of ++i++ek departs from this ambivalence a fundamental tension in ++i++eks work between a historicist critical theory of techno-capitalism and an anti-historicist theory of revolutionary change. In addition to clarifying what ++i++ek has to say about our world and about the possibility of radical change in it, ++i++ek and Heidegger explores the various ways in which this split at the center of his thought appears within it in ++i++eks views on history or on the relationship between the revolutionary leader and the proletariat or between the analyst and the analysand.
