Inhaltsangabe: In this provocative and original work, Slavoj iek takes a look at the question of human agency in a postmodern world. From the sinking of the Titanic to Hitchcock?s Rear Window, from the operas of Wagner to science fiction, from Alien to the Jewish Joke, the author?s acute analyses explore the ideological fantasies of wholeness and exclusion which make up human society.
iek takes issue with analysts of the postmodern condition from Habermas to Sloterdijk, showing that the idea of a ?post-ideological? world ignores the fact that ?even if we do not take things seriously, we are still doing them?. Rejecting postmodernism?s unified world of surfaces, he traces a line of thought from Hegel to Althusser and Lacan, in which the human subject is split, divided by a deep antagonism which determines social reality and through which ideology operates.
Linking key psychoanalytical and philosophical concepts to social phenomena such as totalitarianism and racism, the book explores the political significance of these fantasies of control. In so doing, The Sublime Object of Ideology represents a powerful contribution to a psychoanalytical theory of ideology, as well as offering persuasive interpretations of a number of contemporary cultural formations.
