About this book

This book brings together two of the most influential thinkers in critical theory. By unmasking reality as contingent symbolic fiction, the authors argue, Foucauldian criticism has only deconstructed the world in different ways; the point, however, is 'to recognize the Real in what appears to be mere symbolic fiction' (Žižek) and to change it.

Reviews

'Staging a confrontation between perhaps the most influential figures in poststructuralism and psychoanalysis, Vighi and Feldner establish their fundamental sites of overland and opposition as well as the stakes involved in a choice for one rather than the other. Adherents of Foucault can thus no longer avoid the critical challenge of i ek's thought to their basic notions of archeology, genealogy and discourse analysis. As it changes the fundamental terms of academic and political thought, i ek : Beyond Foucault is a vitally important intervention in contemporary politics.' - Jodi Dean, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, USA
