Psychoanalyzing Cinema: A Productive Encounter with Lacan, Deleuze, and Zizekby Jan (edt) Jagodzinski
Synopses & Reviews
The philosophical systems of Jacques Lacan, Gilles Deleuze and Slavoj Žižek are formidable in their own right. Lacanian psychoanalysis has had a long history of developmental application to cinema studies, Žižek being one of its primary exponents. Deleuzian cinematic studies develop a schizoanalysis of cinema, which both challenges as well as supplements these past developments. The essays within this collection explore the possibilities and potentialities of all three positions, presenting encounters that are, at times contradictory, at other times supportive, as well as complementary. The collection thereby enriches the questions that are being raised within contemporary cinematic studies.
Brings together and compares/contrasts the writing/influence of the two most important theorists in film studies today: Gilles Deleuze and Slavoj Zizek.
