    “The One Who Decides on the Exception”: The Sovereign and Sovereignty in Slavoj Žižek’s Political Theology After Carl Schmitt and Giorgio Agamben.Hue Woodson - 2021 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 15 (1).
    At the intersection of “the theological” and “the political,” the situatedness of the sovereign dictates the task and method of political theology. It is the sovereign, in particular, positioned between “the theological” and “the political,” that is responsible for existentializing what is theologized and what is politicized through the power of sovereignty. Through this sovereignty, the sovereign creates, defines, and oversees all the existential dimensions of a theological-political environment, especially with respect to exclusiveness and inclusiveness, marginalization and belongingness, and what (...)

    “Right Step (Albeit in the Wrong Direction)”: Žižek on Heidegger’s Nazism and the Domestication of Nietzsche.Hue Woodson - 2020 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 14 (1).
    At a certain point in his in In Defense of Lost Causes, Slavoj Žižek suggests that, particularly with respect to Martin Heidegger's relationship with Nazism, Heidegger took "the right step." Not only does such a proposition provide a means to explain the direction Heidegger took in 1933 as it has been infamously pinpointed in his Rector's Address as the newly-inaugurated president of Freiburg, but it also becomes a means to explore Heidegger's turn towards Nietzsche by Winter 1936/1937 in a series (...)

    The Meaning of the Epistemological Situation: Reading Douglass Rushkoff’s Program or Be Programmed with Slavoj Žižek’s A Pervert’s Guide to Ideology.Hue Woodson - 2018 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 12 (3).
    Douglas Rushkoff’s Program or Be Programmed presents a set of rules about how to navigate the contemporary, digital world, when considering the sentiments in the book’s subtitle “Ten Commands for a Digital Age.” To be sure, through how he outlines his understanding of the contemporary, digital world, Rushkoff proposes a hermeneutical exercise, dictating an understanding of the human situation. Similarly, Slavoj Žižek’s A Pervert’s Guide to Ideology, as a film, aims to confront what is occurring in the world situationally that (...)

    Dialectics and Hegelian Negation in Slavoj Žižek’s Enjoy Your Symptom: Fighting the Fantasies of Trauma, Identity, Authority, and Phallophany.Hue Woodson - 2019 - International Journal of Žižek Studies 13 (2).
    In Enjoy your Symptom, Slavoj Žižek’s notion of “trauma” is critical to understanding the scope and meaning of the “symptom.” This “symptom,” conceptually, is construed through the manner in which identity, authority, and phallophany come to bear psychologically on the meaning of being. Because of this, the definition of “symptom,” when viewed in a Heideggerian way, becomes an ontical representation of that which is oriented primordially. The symptom, as we experience it, is more than just at the level of its (...)
