Žižek’s communism: revolutionary terror or Utopian jouissance?
Good theory; bad politics: this is how Žižek’s works have been described. Now Chris McMillan argues that Žižek’s reading of global capitalism could reinvent political subversion. He highlights the political consequences of Žižek’s fundamental concepts, such as the Lacanian Real, universality and the communist hypothesis. He argues that Zizek’s turn to Communism represents the ultimate significance of Žižek’s work for the 21st century and a marked new direction for Žižekian theory.
