Slavoj Zizek

Reading Mythology Madness and Laughter. Zizek is one of two authors. Have started a Tinkle Report on it, still working through first chapter by Markus Gabriel, chapter called Mythological being of reflection.

Turns out Zizek used to teach at New School. Figured out what love about Zizek. Last philosopher who seriously “hit me” like this was Georges Bataille. Zizek’s philosophical writings though vewy wigowous and deep – reach beyond historical terms in view of philosophy, not always always, but a lot. Presents deeply wrestled philosophical issues as occur in media, including theatre. Because of what theatre does – expounds on vision through sharing – resolution of aspiration to resolve truth-issues as occur in cinematic interpretation – BIG Z uses cinema / media (of all kinds) as a sort of pass-thru, an intermediary, distributive of philosophical implosions of truth in the heart of darkness, symmetry, religion etc etc – Does this to great intensity scrutiny relish! Super fab.
