Summary
"The very first book dedicated to Slavoj Zizek's theoretical treatment of law, this book gathers widely recognized Zizek scholars as well as legal theorists to offer a sustained analysis of the place of law in Zizek's work. Whether it is with reference to symbolic law, psychoanalytical law, religious law, positive law, human rights, to Lacan's, Hegel's, or Kant's philosophies of law, or even to Jewish or Buddhist law, Zizek returns again and again to law. And what his work offers, this volume demonstrates, is a radically new approach to law, and a rethinking of its role within the framework of radical politics. With the help of Zizek himself - who here, and for the first time, directly engages with the topic of law - this collection provides an authoritative account of 'Zizek and law'. It will be invaluable resource for researchers and students in the fields of law, legal theory, legal philosophy, political theory, psychoanalysis, theology, and cultural studies"--
