On Flattering Your Audience...

Conference by Slavoj Žižek at the Faculty of Fine Arts University of Porto (11/22/2014)


  1. first of all, why's he sound like Daffy Duck, poor man?
    And doesn't ANYBODY have a Kleenex? I could only listen for a few minutes...
    he really DID flatter his audience as a greeting!
    Where do you FIND this stuff!? :-)

  2. WHy do you find this stuff, is probably a better question :-)

  3. Slavoj Zizek is a Slovenian. English is his second (or perhaps 3rd/4th) language. He's the most recognizable and perhaps "popular" philosopher of the era.

    Why? Because he actually has a philosophical "system".
