Item Description...
Slovenian philosopher Slavojek is known for his brilliant tendency to weave together theology, psychoanalysis, and politics in a unique fashion to provide stunning commentary on contemporary culture. Assuming little prior knowledge of the controversial philosopher, Marcus Pound provides a general introduction - the first of its kind - to Slavojek's work as it relates specifically to theology and religious studies. Pound begins by exploring Slavojek's background in Lacan and German philosophy. That exploration is followed by a critical engagement of Slavojek's concept of God, the mechanics of belief, metaphysics of faith, the role of religious ideology, and why a political act must necessarily assume the form of a religious act. Finally Pound considers the impact of this philosopher's work on currently theological thought concerning gift and sacrifice, gender and sexuality, and the politics of inter-religious debate. This introduction, though brief, nevertheless provides a comprehen-sive account of Slavojek's theological, political, and psychological lexicon. Pound's work here renders the contours of the philosopher's project in clear, accessible terms, perfect for any student of philosophy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
From the back cover  Sep 22, 2008
"With clarity and humor, and in wonderfully short compass, Marcus Pound introduces the thought of not only Slavoj Zizek but also his guru, Jacques Lacan. Pound finds in these masters of inversion a profound anti-theology that only needs to become more theological--more orthodox--in order to work, to rid us of complacency. This is a book for those new to Zizek and for those who, knowing him already, want to know him newly--as the theologian he might almost be. It's as enjoyable as reading Zizek himself." - Gerard Loughlin, Durham University

"Slavoj Zizek's work, always iconoclastic, has since 1997 embraced the seemingly scandalous project of a materialist theology. Marcus Pound's new book is a long-called-for response, from within the field of theology, that takes Zizek's theological turn seriously, testing it against its sources, and situating it within wider theological debates. In doing so, Pound achieves a very searching examination of Zizek's oeuvre, significantly recasting the reception of Zizek's work. Pound's theological perspective also allows him to pose searching questions about what he provocatively calls Zizek's 'politics of abandonment' and about the wider situation of the post-Enlightenment Left today." - Matthew Sharpe, author of _Zizek: A Little Piece of the Real_
