Product Description

An all-star cast of radical intellectuals discuss the continued importance of communist principles

In 2009 Slavoj iek brought together an acclaimed group of intellectuals to discuss the continued relevance of the idea of communism. Unexpectedly the conference attracted an audience of over 1,000 people. The discussion has continued across the world and this book features responses from the conference in Seoul. It includes the interventions of regular contributors Alain Badiou and Slavoj iek, as well as work from across Asia, notably from the Chinese scholar Wang Hui, offering regional perspectives on communism in an era of global economic crisis and political upheaval. What does it mean to talk of communism as an emancipatory possibility to a geographical neighbour of North Korea, Vietnam or China?
