Kurzbeschreibung

i ek and Heidegger offers a radical new interpretation of the work of Slavoj i ek, one of the world's leading contemporary thinkers, through a study of his relationship with the work of Martin Heidegger. Thomas Brockelman argues that i ek's oeuvre is largely a response to Heidegger's philosophy of finitude, an immanent critique of it which pulls it in the direction of revolutionary praxis. Brockelman also finds limitations in i ek's relationship with Heidegger, specifically in his ambivalence about Heidegger's techno-phobia. Brockelman's critique of i ek departs from this ambivalence - a fundamental tension in i ek's work between a historicist critical theory of techno-capitalism and an anti-historicist theory of revolutionary change. In addition to clarifying what i ek has to say about our world and about the possibility of radical change in it, i ek and Heidegger explores the various ways in which this split at the center of his thought appears within it - in i ek's views on history or on the relationship between the revolutionary leader and the proletariat or between the analyst and the analysand.
