Good Old Zizek

Chatting on Skype with one of my Slovenian friends the other night revealed that he had just attended a lecture by Zizek earlier in the evening. I was very jealous. Video and/or audio might be on the way. He's incredibly crazy/engaging depending on your point of view.

In the best traditions of synchronicity, I found later on that night a great article in the Financial Times where Zizek is interviewed. Enjoy!

It's some sort of odd lunch/interview column, but it does give some of his more interesting ideas, although the journalist is clearly trying to paint him as an oddball. The best part is the section about "how theory works" - perhaps the most misunderstood idea among people at the present moment. The phrase, "Well that's just a theory" should never be uttered.
