Žižek: The Parallax View (2006)
After a longer break due to external factors we would like to continue our Readings of the "Parallax View" from this week on (as always, every 14 days). Because of the current situation it is now necessary to write a Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for registration before attending any session.
If we are enough participants, the next session will be this Thursday, 14. May 2020 (7:30-9pm).Lektüregruppe in englischer Sprache Moderator: Alex Janda (email@example.com) Donnerstags, vierzehntägig, 19.30 – 21:00 Uhr In his magnum opus The Parallax View, Slavoj Žižek offers an overview of his system of thought: in reading Hegel with Lacan, he is far from reaffirming Hegel as a philosopher of "synthesis." On the contrary, the unresolvable Kantian antinomies, which initiate a dialectical movement, are read in line with the Lacanian idea of ‘Alienation’ and ‘Separation’. In this seminar, we focus on Žižek's work in order to approach the stimulating intersections between philosophy and psychoanalysis where each operates as the ex-tim core of the other ‘field of engagement’. With regard to people without knowledge of German or French, the book is read in English. Teilnahmegebühr: 5€ pro Seminarsitzung
