From Communist Ideology to the Idea of Communism: Transformations in Žižek’s Notion of Communism
Södertörn University, School of Culture and Education, Rhetoric.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-0847-2024
2023 (English)In: Filozofski vestnik (Tiskana izd.), ISSN 0353-4510, E-ISSN 1581-1239, Vol. 44, no 1, p. 53-73Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article approaches a potential tension in the work of Slavoj Žižek between his critique of communist ideology and his endorsement of the communist idea. The aim is to show how this endorsement, in effect, emerged out of Žižek’s sustained engagement with communist ideology. The article captures this transformation by focusing on his understanding of the notion of the idea and the ways in which ideology can be transgressed. The conclusion is drawn that in moving from a Kantian to a Hegelian notion of the idea, Žižek also leaves behind his initial Beckettian Leninism in favor of an understanding of revolution that no longer depends on the heroic act of a subject but on the immanent logic of the communist idea. 

Abstract [sl]

Članek obravnava potencialno napetost v delu Slavoja Žižka med njegovo kritiko ko-munistične ideologije in njegovim zavzemanjem za komunistično idejo. Cilj je pokazati, kako je ta podpora dejansko nastala iz Žižkovega nenehnega ukvarjanja s komunistično ideologijo. Članek to preobrazbo zajame tako, da se osredotoči na Žižkovo razume-vanje pojma ideje in na načine, na katere je mogoče ideologijo preseči. Sklepna ugoto-vitev je, da Žižek s prehodom od kantovskega k heglovskemu pojmu ideje zapusti tudi svoj začetni beckettovski leninizem v korist razumevanja revolucije, ki ni več odvisno od herojskega dejanja subjekta, temveč od imanentne logike same komunistične ideje.
