    Is it meanngful to call oneself a democrat? And if so, how do you interpret the word? In responding to this question, eight iconoclastic thinkers prove the rich potential of democracy, along with its critical weaknesses, & reconceive the practice to accomodate new political & cultural realities. Concentrating on the classical roots of democracy & its changing meaning over time & within different contexts, these essays uniquely defend what is left of the left-wing tradition after the fall of Soviet communism. They confront disincentives to active democratic participation that have caused voter turnout to decline in Western countries, & address electoral indifference by invoking & reviving the tradition of citizen involvement.

    German post-Kantian idealism was designed to effectuate a shift from epistemology to a new ontology, but without simply regressing to pre-critical metaphysics, contend Gabriel (philosophy, New School for Social Research, US) and Zizek (cultural studies, U. of Ljubljana, Slovenia). They locate the gap between the alleged absolute thing-in-itself and the relative phenomenal world within the absolute itself. It is a crucial duty of contemporary post-Kantian idealism, to make sense of this shift, they say, in order to contribute to the overcoming of epistemology as prima philosophia. Hegel and Fichte are the idealist figures they concentrate most on. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    What is the basis of belief in an era when globalization, multiculturalism and big business are the new religion? Slavoj Zizek, renowned philosopher and irrepressible cultural critic takes on all comers in this compelling and breathless new book.From 'cyberspace reason' to the paradox that is 'Western Buddhism', On Belief gets behind the contours of the way we normally think about belief, in particular Judaism and Christianity. Holding up the so-called authenticity of religious belief to critical light, Zizek draws on psychoanalysis, film and philosophy to reveal in startling fashion that nothing could be worse for believers than their beliefs turning out to be true.

    Film theory is in crisis. The dominant psychoanalytical paradigm is contested by cognitive models and post-theory. In the background is a wider crisis in cultural studies, particularly as regards the public role of the politically engaged intellectual.In this major new study Slavoj Zizek challenges both cognitivist-historicist accounts of cinema and conventional film theory. Arguing that the reading of Lacan operative in the '70s and '80s was particularly reductive, Zizek asserts that there is "another Lacan," in reference to whom film theory, cultural studies, and critical thought as such can be transformed and revitalized. He supports and expands this argument with an extensive reading of the work of Kieslowski and, in a substantial appendix, with a discussion of the relationship between Christianity, Gothicism and the "progressive digitalisation of our life-world."

    This book is Slavoj Zizek's most substantial theoretical work to appear in many years; Zizek himself describes it as his magnum opus. A parallax can be defined as the apparent displacement of an object caused by a change in observational position. Zizek is interested in the 'parallax gap' separating two points between which no synthesis or mediation is possible, linked by an 'impossible short circuit' of levels that can never meet. From this consideration of parallax, Zizek begins a rehabilitation of dialectical materialism. Notes, Index. 434p.
