Sample text

Zizek's entire argument is specifically designed to refute every other contemporary approach to understanding culture, society, politics and ideology than his own. The argument about New Age Taoism as ideology is primarily a key part in Zizek's ongoing critique of 'postmodernist relativism', 'deconstructionism', identity politics, multiculturalism and cultural studies (among others, as we will see). For, in recasting something so apparently innocuous, gentle, naturalistic, sweet and innocent as Taoism as ideological, Zizek seeks reciprocally to implicate any approach that might regard it as an interesting or beneficial 'multicultural' development or 'encounter'.

To Zizek's mind, this arises because the contemporary experience of global capitalism tends to be that of 'being thrown around by market forces' (2001a: 116). He takes this to be definitive of the form of life under contemporary capitalism, owing to the turbulent effects of deregulated markets and chaotic international flows of capital. Because of this, Zizek argues that there is now a growing ideological injunction not to 'cling' to old forms and values. In these conditions, he suggests, other than a retreat into defensive fundamentalisms, a Taoist ethic presents itself as an ideal ideological option.

Nonetheless it is pleasurable and possibly even germane for Zizek to demand revolutionary social transformation. So, then, is this what Zizek really wants, socialism? Would a decisive, historical reconciliation between the forces of production and the relations of production satisfy him? Or is this a classic example of a resistive transference demand that is itself symptomatic? Is Zizek confusing his criticism of marginalized political Others with his demands on the big Other? And, more problematic still, has his readership-asanalyst slipped into a stage of 'mutual, narcissistic regression', with him, where he is gratified that we continue to buy his monographs and we are gratified that he continues to publish them?
