LACAN BY MARCUS POUND

The producer of these videos’ Dr Timothy Hull has also written the introductory book “ Faith & modern thought. The modern philosophers for understanding modern theology A jargon -busting , myth -busting introduction. Cascade books WIPE and STOCK Publishers


“I wish I had had this book as a student—it is so much more helpful and interesting than anything else on the subject. Tim Hull offers an engaging, clear, and utterly unpretentious introduction to modern thought and modern philosophy for theologians, while at the same time giving a sophisticated and fresh reading of the history of thought. A great achievement.”
—Karen Kilby, Durham University

“Dr. Hull is a gifted teacher who has produced a convincing case for understanding theology within the bigger context of philosophy. He produces masterly studies of Kant, Hegel, Barth, Pannenberg, and others, each from a fresh angle. The book abounds in homely illustrative anecdotes and short readable sections. The incarnation and Trinity receive a rightful place. Reading the book to the end will be amply rewarded.”
—Anthony C. Thiselton, Universities of Nottingham and Chester

“Tim Hull’s book displays his wonderful gift for making profound and influential ideas accessible and enjoyable to think deeply about. With clarity, creativity, humor, and illuminating exposition of the metaphors at the heart of their projects, he shows persuasively that key figures in modern Western philosophy must be understood as religious thinkers, and that several major thinkers in modern Christian theology cannot be adequately understood apart from them.”
—Ben Fulford, University of Chester

“Tim Hull’s conversational style, coupled with crystal clear thinking, forms a perfect introduction to the long, intertwined history of philosophy and theology. A thoroughly enjoyable and thought-provoking read.”
—Isabelle Hamley, Chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury

“The dominant trends in modern theology were largely shaped by the intellectual movements of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Recognizing the need for an accessible guide to the key figures and movements, Timothy Hull has produced a lively and informative introduction which should prove of much assistance to students.”
—David Fergusson, University of Edinburgh

Slavoj Zizek The Pressure of Meaning

Two Hollywood productions were released to mark the 5th anniversary of the 9/11: Paul Greengrass's United 93 and Oliver Stone's World Trade Center. The first thing that strikes the eye is that both try to be as anti-Hollywood as possible: both focus on the courage of ordinary people, with no glamorous stars, no special effects, no grandiloquent heroic gestures, just a terse realistic depiction of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. There is undoubtedly a touch of authenticity in the films - recall how the large majority of critics unanimously praised the film's avoiding of sensationalism, its sober and restrained style. It is this very touch of authenticity that should make us suspicious - we should immediately ask ourselves what ideological purposes it serves.

IDEOLOGY - Slavoj Žižek

FURTHER READING

“Today’s typical first world subjects, according to Žižek, are the dupes of what he calls “ideological cynicism.” Drawing on the German political theorist Sloterdijk, Žižek contends that the formula describing the operation of ideology today is not “they do not know it, but they are doing it”, as it was for Marx. It is “they know it, but they are doing it anyway.”

Žižek’s position is that nevertheless this cynicism indicates the deeper efficacy of political ideology per se. Ideologies, as political discourses, are there to secure the voluntary consent. Žižek argues, subjects will only voluntarily agree to follow one or other such arrangement if they believe that, in doing so, they are expressing their free subjectivity, and might have done otherwise.”

Alexis Tsipras & Slavoj Žižek /// The Role of the European Left ||| 15th May 2013

6th Subversive festival
15/05/2013, 21:00h, cinema Europa
Alexis Tsipras & Slavoj Žižek: The Role of the European Left

Moderator: Srećko Horvat

The accession of Croatia to the periphery of the European Union, as the most recent and possibly the last member state, is a good cause to ask ourselves what kind of Europe this is, but also what is the future of Europe and what is the left wing's role in it. After the great success of SYRIZA in Greece, a question arises concerning the relationship between social movements and organized party activity, as well as the burning issue of taking over the power and resisting the dictatorship of Troika. Is it even possible to design and bring into life a realistic utopian power within the existing frame of the financial and political union, one that will make a radical shift from the prevailing neoliberal consensus? And if it is, what are the necessary strategies and forms of organization? All these questions will be discussed - just two months before Croatia's accession to the EU and one month before the Altersummit in Athens - by the most dangerous man in Europe, a name that the leading mainstream media gave to Alexis Tsipras, and the most dangerous philosopher of the West, as they call Slavoj Žižek, a regular guest of the Subversive Festival.

Alexis Tsipras
Greek left wing politican and a member of the Hellenic parliament, president of the Synaspismom political party since 2008, head of the SYRIZA parliamentary group since 2009 and Leader of Opposition since June 2012. He studied civil engineering at the National Technical University of Athens As a university student he joined the ranks of the renovative left movement and was member of the executive board of the Student's union of the Civil Engineering School of National Technical University of Athens, and also served as student representative at the University Senate. In 2009 Tsipras became a leader of SYRIZA parliamentary group. In the 2012 Greek legislative elections SYRIZA became the second largest party in the Greek parliament and the mainopposition party.

Slavoj Žižek
Slovenian philosopher and cultural critic working in the traditions of Hegelianism, Marxism and Lacanian psychoanalysis. He has made contributions to political theory, film theory and theoretical psychoanalysis. Žižek is a senior researcher at the Institute of Sociology, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and a professor at the European Graduate School. He has been a visiting professor at many important universities. He is currently the International Director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities at Birkbeck, University of London and president of the Society for Theoretical Psychoanalysis, Ljubljana. He has been called 'the most dangerous political philosopher in the West'. He is a traditional guest and Parteigenosse at Subversive Festival. He has published over 50 books that have been translated into 20 languages. He writes on many topics including subjectivity, ideology, capitalism, fundamentalism, racism, tolerance, multiculturalism, human rights, ecology, globalization, the Iraq War, revolution, utopianism, totalitarianism, postmodernism, pop culture, opera, cinema, political theology, and religion. Some of his books are The Sublime Object of Ideology (2002.), The Ticklish Subject (2006.), Violence (2008.), The Parallax View (2009.), First As Tragedy, Then As Force (2010).

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, Zizek sees a lot of value in analytic philosophy, especially in regard to its linguistic and scientific pursuits. Zizek even references Saul Kripke, the famed analytic philosopher and logician.
