Repeating Žižek deals a major engagement with the tips and propositions of thinker Slavoj Žižek. frequently subjecting Žižek's paintings to a Žižekian research, this volume's members think of the prospect (or impossibility) of formalizing Žižek's principles into an identifiable philosophical process. They research his interpretations of Hegel, Plato, and Lacan, define his debates with Badiou, and overview the results of his research of politics and capitalism upon Marxist suggestion. different essays specialise in Žižek's method of Christianity and Islam, his "sloppy" approach to analyzing texts, his relation to present advancements in neurobiology, and his theorization of animals. The ebook ends with an afterword by means of Žižek during which he analyzes Shakespeare's and Beckett's performs relating to the topic. The individuals don't achieve a consensus on defining a Žižekian university of philosophy—perhaps his idiosyncratic and sometimes heterogeneous rules easily withstand synthesis—but even of their repetition of Žižek, they convey anything new and vital.Contributors. Henrik Jøker Bjerre, Bruno Bosteels, Agon Hamza, Brian Benjamin Hansen, Adrian Johnston, Katja Kolšek, Adam Kotsko, Catherine Malabou, Benjamin Noys, Geoff Pfeifer, Frank Ruda, Oxana Timofeeva, Samo Tomsic, Gabriel Tupinambá, Fabio Vighi, Gavin Walker, Sead Zimeri, Slavoj Žižek
