A very recent paper delivered for the occasion of 10th anniversary edition of the DigitalFUTURES hosted by Tongji University, Shanghai. The presentation mostly includes various points developed by Žižek which should already be well known to the followers of his work done throughout the past decade, and mainly focuses on the specific Hegelian dialectical idea of how the notion of reality is a kind of an incomplete, imperfect material manifestation of the general predominant social ideology.
Slavoj Žižek is a Hegelian philosopher and psychoanalytic social theorist. He is Senior Researcher at the Department of Philosophy, University of Ljubljana; Professor at the School of Law, Birkbeck, University of London; Distinguished Scholar at the Kyung Hee University, Seoul; and Visiting Professor at the German Department, New York University. His field of work comprises psychoanalytic theory, dialectical-materialist interpretations of German Idealism and Marxist critique of ideology.
