On Belief

(Hardback - May 2001)
$125.00 - Online Price

Overview

What is the basis of belief in an era when globalization, multiculturalism and big business are the new religion? Slavoj Zizek, renowned philosopher and irrepressible cultural critic discusses this, and other such questions in this book. From cyberspace reason to the paradox that is Western Buddhism, On Belief probes beneath the surface of the way we normally think about belief, in particular Judaism and Christianity. Holding up the so-called authenticity of religious belief to critical light, Zizek draws on psychoanalysis, film and philosophy to reveal that perhaps nothing could be worse for believers than their beliefs turning out to be true.
