Event

Slavoj Žižek

What is really happening when something happens? Here, Slavoj Žižek, one of the world's greatest living philosophers, takes us on a trip which stops at different definitions of Event, and addresses fundamental questions such as: are all things connected? How much are we agents of our own fates? And in a world that's constantly changing, is anything new really happening? Drawing on references from Plato to arthouse cinema, the Big Bang to Buddhism, Event is a journey into philosophy at its most exciting.

Slavoj Žižek is a Hegelian philosopher, Lacanian psychoanalyst, and Communist political activist. He is the author of numerous books on dialectical materialism, critique of ideology and art. His main work is Less Than Nothing, a study on the actuality of Hegelian dialectics.
