Slavoj Žižek on Animals (Episode 2)

Slavoj Žižek gives a lecture entitled “The Animal Doesn't Exist.” He also discusses Lacan, Derrida, Badiou and definitions of the human. This is the first in a two-part podcast on animal studies, as well as our first “bootleg” episode.


Next week I'll post an original conversation with Etienne Benson and Jussi Parikka dedicated to their respective work on media and animals (and my thanks to Etienne for recording this Žižek lecture). Interviews with WJT Mitchell and Graham Harman are in the pipeline too.
