about this item

Philosopher and sociologist Zizek examines global capitalism, its apparent and hidden aspects and meanings. The book is divided into four chapters and an appendix. It begins with what the author calls a "diagnosis" of the capitalist system, followed by a deeper analysis of the ideology that promotes it. There is then a "prognosis," predicting the future this system is manufacturing. The conclusion or "epignosis" proposes means of personal and organizational struggle to become emancipated from the system. Zizek probes, among many other things, the dark side of South Korea's economic success; debt as a way of life; the mass charity of billionaire's as a necessary outcome of global capitalism; the important role of whistle-blowers like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange; hedonism and the search for happiness; and the violence of Gandhi's movement.
