Filozofija I Društvo 2004 (24):71-91 (2004)

The paper offers a critical discussion of the thesis about the revived philosophical and political significance of Lenin, as recently propounded by Slavoj Zizek. Analyzing Zizek's writings, the author argues that the call for a "return to Lenin" derives from Zizek's strategy of "textual provocation" and the frustrating position of the leftist, radical tradition of political thought after the collapse of communism. U radu je prikazana i kriticki interpretirana teza o filozofskoj i politickoj aktualnosti Lenjina koju je nedavno formulisao Slavoj Zizek. Na osnovu analize Zizekovih tekstova, autor obrazlaze svoju ocenu po kojoj je zamisao "povratka Lenjinu " proizvod Zizekove strategije " tekstualne provokacije " i frustrirajuceg polozaja u kojem se, nakon sloma komunizma nasla leva, radikalna tradicija politickog misljenja.
