“The most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged from Europe in some decades.”—Terry Eagleton

“Žižek unfolds in this text a theory of the workings of postmodern ideology that is often breathtaking in its scope and acuity.”—Postmodern Culture
