So uhhh... *sniffs* where do I begin with Zizek

>> No.14186471

Start by watching his lectures on Youtube

>> No.14186472

fuck off

>> No.14186495

Start with Swabians.

>> No.14186499

Look at his face. If he looks like that why would you want to listen to anything he has to say? Physiognomy doesn't lie, anon.

>> No.14186510

Start reading Lacan and Capitalism Realism

>> No.14186547

Unironically, what I'd recommend would be:
>a smaller work or two - Welcome to the Desert of the Real, First as Tragedy then as Farce
>a bigger but nontechnical work - Living in the End Times may be good, Parallax View,
From here you will know if you give a shit. If you do, you'll want to read:
>the Sublime Object of Ideology (even if you don't understand all of it)
>something Christian, maybe Fragile Absolute or Puppet and the Dwarf
>Absolute Recoil
And eventually you will want to tackle Less Than Nothing

>> No.14186568

>If he looks like that why would you want to listen to anything he has to say?
He looks like total lad, though. The kind of guy that is fun to have a beer with.

>> No.14186624

Why does he look like a dirty hobo in every single photo that exists of him? I can smell the piss and the sweat from here.

>> No.14186655

violence. its one of his shorter, more digestable books.

>> No.14186656

Which lectures do you suggest I start with?

The former is of my interest, I might go to him after I finish with Jung. The latter I have already bought, ready to read it

Thank you so much, very useful!

>> No.14186727

Wasn't Lacan a conman/charlatan/quack?

>> No.14186772

Less Than Nothing is his magnum opus but hope you've read Hegel. Parallax View is another excellent one.

The Essential Zizek series (first four) are a pretty good intro:


If you like Jung, I encourage you to read Freud and Lacan. Zizek has a decent intro as well as does Fink.

Lacan is mayhaps a bit charlatanish but a genius regardless. Badiou is a Mao cultist but still worth reading too. Badiou's lectures on Lacan are pretty fascinating in fact.

PS: Am I the only one who would love to see Zizek take LSD?

>> No.14186787

>tfw look like zizek
Fuck off, dad

>> No.14186791

Watch the Pervert's Guide(s)

>> No.14187516

>> No.14187533

Yeah. Just like Zizek.

If you have some background in philosophy and want his more serious stuff start with Sublime Object. If not then >>14186791

>> No.14187824

He did have some very interesting and revolutionary insights, but he is unnecessarily obtuse and you will understand him more by reading works on him rather than by him.

start with his debate with Jordan Peterson

>> No.14188456

What's a good first book on his work?

>> No.14188578

Lacanian Subject by Fink

>> No.14189352

This dude looks like Ben Finegold but with chronic alcoholism

>> No.14189361

Not OP, but I recently bought the essential zizek collection, should I be reading Hegel and Lacan before I start reading Zizek?

>> No.14189834

Don't bother, just read Zizek's shorter works first - they're his most accessible. After you have the foundational concepts you can move onto his other works deciding on a case by case basis whether you need Hegel and Lacan to advance.

>> No.14189963

Why does he sniff, bros?

>> No.14189967

>Ben Finegold
Wait, Finegold is more popular than Zizek?
