Zizek’s SEX AND THE FAILED ABSOLUTE: table of contents

New book by Zizek, SEX AND THE FAILED ABSOLUTE (roughly 500 pages), coming out in September. Here is the table of contents (source here). I am looking forward to reading it after having worked through Badiou’s take on the Absolute in IMMANENCE DES VÉRITÉS (see my review: https://terenceblake.wordpress.com/2018/10/06/my-path-through-badious-the-immanence-of-truths-full-english-text/, pdf here

I am eagerly anticipating to the discussion of quantum theory and of quantum platonism, as I find Zizek’s take on quantum physics very interesting (see my discussions here, here, and here).
