Slavoj Žižek [ˈʒiʒɛk] ist ein aus Slowenien stammender Philosoph, Kulturkritiker und Theoretiker der lacanianischen Psychoanalyse. Bekannt geworden ist er durch seine Übertragung und Weiterentwicklung der Psychoanalyse Jacques Lacans in das Feld der Populärkultur und der Gesellschaftskritik. Er wird häufig dem Poststrukturalismus zugerechnet, hat sich selbst jedoch mehrfach von dieser Einordnung distanziert.

Zitate Slavoj Žižek

„In allen Bereichen haben wir zunehmend das Ding ohne sein Wesen. Wir haben Bier ohne Alkohol, Fleisch ohne Fett, Kaffee ohne Koffein - und sogar virtuellen Sex ohne Sex.“

„What cannot be described should be inscribed into the artistic form as its uncanny distortion.“

— Slavoj Žižek
Context: The horror of the Holocaust cannot be represented; but this excess of represented content over its aesthetic representation has to infect the aesthetic form itself. What cannot be described should be inscribed into the artistic form as its uncanny distortion. Chapter One (The Drink Before), Vacillating The Semblances

„From St. Augustine's De Nuptiis et Concupiscentia:“

— Slavoj Žižek
Context: From St. Augustine's De Nuptiis et Concupiscentia: 'Original sin lies in man's arrogance and pride; it was committed when Adam ate from the Tree of Knowledge, wanting to elevate himself to the divine heights and to become himself master of all creation.' God punished man - Adam by implanted in him a certain drive - the sexual drive - which cannot be mastered, tamed, like hunger/thirst. Someone with a strong enough will can starve to death in the middle of a room full of delicious food, but if a naked virgin passes his way, the erection of his phallus is in no way dependent in the strength of his will. 253-254

„Kantian definition of the Sublime:“

— Slavoj Žižek
Context: Kantian definition of the Sublime: 'The sublime may be described in this way: It is an object (of nature) the representation of which determines the mind to regard the elevation of nature beyond our reach as equivalent to a presentation of ideas...' The feeling of the Sublime is, therefore, at once a feeling of displeasure, arising from the inadequacy of imagination in the aesthetic estimation of magnitude to attain, to its estimation by reason, and a simultaneously awakened pleasure, arising from this very judgement of the inadequacy of the greatest faculty of sense being in accord with ideas of reason, so far as the effort to attain to these is for us a law. 229

„Insofar as the gap between essence and appearance is inherent to appearance, in other words, infsofar as essence is nothing but appearance reflected into itself, appearance is appearance against the background of nothing - everything appears ultimately out of nothing.“

— Slavoj Žižek
Context: The implicit lesson of Plato is not that everything is appearance, that it is not possible to draw a clear line of separation between appearance and reality (that would have meant the victory of Sophism), but that essence is "appearance as appearance,"that essence appears in contrast to appearance within appearance; that the distinction between appearance and essence has to be inscribed into appearance itself. Insofar as the gap between essence and appearance is inherent to appearance, in other words, infsofar as essence is nothing but appearance reflected into itself, appearance is appearance against the background of nothing - everything appears ultimately out of nothing. Chapter One (The Drink Before), Vacillating The Semblances

„Lacan's definition of human deception:“

— Slavoj Žižek
Context: Lacan's definition of human deception: We deceive the Other by means of the truth itself; in a universe in which all are looking for the true face beneath the mask, the best way to lead them astray is to wear the mask of truth itself. 41
