THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED!
Congratulations to the winners. The correct answers are below.
It’s the England vs Slovenia football match today – so what better time to win a Zizek Philosophy Football t-shirt! (seemingly now unavailable to buy, according to their site, so this is a rare opportunity.)
And this is a particularly generous competition – we have discovered some old editions of Zizek’s books in the office so we have a fantastic offer!
Three people can win:
With such a generous offer they do of course have to be fiendish questions. So we have five questions – the answers to which can all be found in Zizek’s brand new book Living in the End Times.
- “I like to deal with rightists. They say what they really think – not like the leftists, who say one thing and mean another.” Who said this after meeting who?
- Mao after meeting Nixon and Kissenger
The cover of the book is based on a painting by which artist (and it’s the original artist we want)?
- Caspar David Friedrich
In the book what band does Zizek reference that is part of the ‘New German Hardness’?
- Name Zizek’s favourite Russian-American novelist.
- What’s the natural manure for the tree of liberty – and who says so?
The blood of tyrants – Thomas Jefferson
