Zizek's Jokes (Did You Hear the One About Hegel and Negation?)

by Slavoj Žižek, edited by Audun Mortensen
£12.95   hardback  MIT Press Ltd (2014)

Zizek

"A serious and good philosophical work could be written consisting entirely of jokes."
(Ludwig Wittgenstein)
The good news is that this book offers an entertaining but enlightening compilation of Žižekisms. Unlike any other book by Slavoj Žižek, this compact arrangement of jokes culled from his writings provides an index to certain philosophical, political, and sexual themes that preoccupy him. Žižek’s Jokes contains the set-ups and punch lines — as well as the offenses and insults — that Žižek is famous for, all in less than 200 pages.
