A Lacanian Conception of Populism : Society Does Not Exist, Paperback / softback Book

A Lacanian Conception of Populism : Society Does Not Exist Paperback / softback

Part of the The Lines of the Symbolic in Psychoanalysis Series series

Paperback / softback

Description

Challenges current understandings of populism as a synonym of hegemony.

Considers the work of the main contemporary post-Althusserian thinkers, who generally are also Lacanians, including Laclau (and Mouffe), Badiou, Žižek and Rancière.

Draws out the consequences of this concept for contemporary political theory: the question of how to define ‘left’ and ‘right’; the question of popular enthusiasm and affect; ‘truth’ versus ‘post-truth’; the question of leadership; populism and nationalism; and the relation between populism and political parties.
