Slavoj A iA ek, the maverick philosopher, author of over 30 books, acclaimed as the "Elvis of cultural theory," and today's most controversial public intellectual. His work traverses the fields of philosophy, psychoanalysis, theology, history and political theory, taking in film, popular culture, literature and jokes--all to provide acute analyses of the complexities of contemporary ideology as well as a serious and sophisticated philosophy. His recent films The Pervert's Guide to the Cinema and A iA ek! reveal a theorist at the peak of his powers and a skilled communicator. Now Verso is making his classic titles, each of which stand as a core of his ever-expanding life's work, available as new editions. Each is beautifully re-packaged, including new introductions from A iA ek himself. Simply put, they are the essential texts for understanding A iA ek's thought and thus cornerstones of contemporary philosophy. The Sublime Object of Ideology Slavoj A iA ek's first book is a provocative and original work looking at the question of human agency in a postmodern world. In a thrilling tour de force that made his name, he explores the ideological fantasies of wholeness and exclusion which make up human society.
