Is Education a Lost Cause? Zizek, Schooling, and Universal Emancipation
Cooley, Aaron
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v30 n4 p381-395 Dec 2009
This paper discusses the work of Slavoj Zizek and links several of his ideas to educational contexts. After giving a brief background on his unique intellectual perspective, I pull three themes (control, torture, and politics) from his body of work, and I consider their educational connections and implications. I conclude by speculating on the future use of Zizek's work to educational philosophy and educational studies. (Contains 27 notes.)
