Product Description

A decade ago Slavoj Zizek's work - his atheistic, communistic philosophy - took a strangely theological turn. In Zizek: A (Very) Critical Introduction, Marcus Pound asks the pertinent questions to reposition this philosophical stance within a more traditional theological context.

    Pound's (very) critical introduction to Zizek is a lovely introduction to one who could easily be viewed as a confusing voice on the fringe of philosophy and theology. Though the title suggests an ostensibly critical tone toward the work of Zizek, readers can sense a thorough appreciation of Zizek on the part of Marcus Pound, which makes the whole volume feel like respectful engagement instead of unabashed critique.

    The text focuses heavily on those areas of Zizek's work which wax theological. However, the critique offered is often reserved until the final portion of each chapter, making it difficult to see points of difference between Zizek and his interlocutors especially if the reader is not familiar with the grammar of the debate (Especially in later chapters where it is assumed that the reader has some familiarity with Freudian considerations of castration, masculinity and femininity).

    I'm convinced that this volume establishes Zizek as a worthy dialogue partner for theologians in all traditions. I am thinking especially of a discussion of Zizek's rejection of atonement schemes for viewing the death of Christ. Perhaps those of us who are interested in theology as it contributes to the life of the church will hear out his particular objections and be willing to examine our own theologies in light of his more salient criticisms.
