'I am a good Hegelian. If you have a good theory, forget about the reality.' So writes Slavoj Zizek one of G.W. F. Hegel's most enduring fans and critics. It would be difficult to exaggerate the impact of Hegel on contemporary thought but he's a notoriously dense and difficult th...inker. What was he really saying and is it in any way relevant to how we live today? To mark the 250th anniversary of Hegel's birth, Slavoj Zizek gives us a series of radical new readings of key passages of Hegel to throw a new light on today's problems, from quantum physics to the rise of populist politics, contemporary philosophy to film, TV and sci fi literature. With characteristic verve and energy, Zizek explains why, exactly, Hegel still matters in a post-Hegelian universe and why he's much more fun than anyone gives him credit for.
