Description


This collection rethinks the relationship between objectivity and fiction through a series of 'objective fictions', such as fetishes, semblances, lies, rumours, sophistry, fantasies and conspiracy theories. It engages with modern and contemporary philosophical traditions and psychoanalytic theory, with all of these orientations being irreducible to either nominalist or realist approaches. The contributors are a mix of renowned thinkers and thinkers from the new generation, including Slavoj Zizek, Mladen Dolar, Frank Ruda and Samo Tomsič.
