Title: Political Correctness is a More Dangerous Form of Totalitarianism
Post by: Private on 14 November 2015 at 12:32
Slavoj Žižek is a Slovenian philosopher, cultural critic, and Marxist intellectual. He is a senior researcher at the Institute for Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Ljubljana, Global Distinguished Professor of German at New York University, and international director of the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities. His work is located at the intersection of a range of disciplines, including continental philosophy, political theory, cultural studies, psychoanalysis, film criticism, and theology.
