    A Zizekian Attempt to Find a Way Into Iranian Progressive Reformism Through a Comparative Analysis of the Figures of Ayatollah Khomeini and Qassem Soleimani.Ali Mehraein - 2021 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 15 (2).
    The problem which is both created and tackled by this article is that although it advocates the Iranian progressive reformism as the most preferable political force in Iran, it simply does not find reformists’ own formulation of their “competitive advantage” convincing enough.

    This article first tries to show that there is an affinity between an embarrassing violation of autonomy in a significant example of Persian writing style nearly one thousand years ago, and Foucault’s desire in his inaugural speech in 1970.
