Outspoken Philosopher Slavoj Žižek to Give Feb. 28 Talk
Philosopher Slavoj Žižek comes to The Claremont Colleges next week to deliver a talk on political economy and our current political moment. The event has been made possible by Claremont Graduate University and Pomona College.
Titled “From Surplus-Value to Surplus-Enjoyment,” the talk will take place February 28 at 7:00 pm at Pomona College’s Rose Hills Theatre, located at 170 E. 6th Street. The talk is open to the public.
Žižek is a Slovenian philosopher and cultural theorist regarded by many as a leading public intellectual of our age. He has been referred to as “the Elvis of Cultural Theory” and “the most dangerous philosopher in the West.”
Žižek is also a co-founder of the Slovenian Liberal Democratic Party and was named by Foreign Policy as a “Top 100 Global Thinker.”
