About Žižekian Analysis

Žižekian Analysis is the organ-without-body of the Cluster Struggle [1] which has two main purposes:

1) It aims to gather a community of readers and writers based on one common denominator: The recognition and engagement with the Žižek-Event in philosophy that has been taking place in the World’s transition from the 20th Century to the 21st Century. We can surely criticize Žižek’s work when and where it’s warranted but we cannot be ignorant or indifferent about his work if we are going to do philosophy in this World after Žižek. To become a writer in Žižekian Analysis, please answer the Call For Blog Posts.

2) It aims to devise new conceptual distinctions to help with the philosophical transition towards the 21st century. Here are some examples: Exigency & Enjoyment, Authorization & Embodiment, Will & System, Desire & Malfunction, Symbolic Authorization & Real Authorization, Fetishistic Embodiment & Symptomatic Embodiment, Spatial & Combinatorial, Decryption & Decipherment, Class Struggle & Cluster Struggle, etc. This second agenda involves my own texts on Žižekian Analysis which I compile under Görce Writings.
