Philosophical materialism in all its forms — from scientific naturalism to Deleuzian New Materialism — has failed to meet the key theoretical and political challenges of the modern world. Absolute Recoil is a startling reformulation of the basis and possibilities of contemporary philosophy. For the last two centuries, Western philosophy has developed in the shadow of Hegel, an influence each new thinker struggles to escape.
As a consequence, Hegel's absolute idealism has become the bogeyman of philosophy, obscuring the fact that he is the defining philosopher of the historical transition to modernity, a period with which our own times share startling similarities. Today, as global capitalism comes apart at the seams, we are entering a new period of transition.
In this combative major new work, philosophical sharpshooter Slavoj Zizek looks for the kernel of truth in the totalitarian politics of the past. Examining Heidegger's seduction by fascism and Foucault's flirtation with the Iranian Revolution, he suggests that these were the 'right steps in the wrong direction. In some circles, a nod towards totalitarianism is enough to dismiss any critique of the status quo. Did Somebody Say Totalitarianism? Call it the year of dreaming dangerously: caught the world off guard with a series of shattering events.

It proposes that global capitalism is fundamentalist and that America was complicit in the rise of Muslim fundamentalism.
It points to our dreaming about the catastrophe in numerous disaster movies before it happened, and explores the irony that the tragedy has been used to legitimize torture.

Last but not least it analyzes the fiasco of the predominant leftist response to the events. What is the contemporary legacy of Gramsci's notion of Hegemony? How can universality be reformulated now that its spurious versions have been so thoroughly criticized? In this ground-breaking project, Judith Butler, Ernesto Laclau and Slavoj Zizek engage in a dialogue on central questions of contemporary philosophy and politics.
Their essays, organized as separate contributions that respond to one another, range over the Hegelian legacy in contemporary critical theory, the theoretical dilemmas of multiculturalism, the universalism-versus-particularism debate, the strategies of the Left in a globalized economy, and the relative merits of post-structuralism and Lacanian psychoanalysis for a critical social theory.
