Slavoj Zizek

Cartoons of Buddhism

Why do humanists attack cartoons of Buddhism? Humanists who in their right mind wouldn't dare assault such a cartoon of Islam, Judaism, Hinduism or even Christianity? The answer is simple: it's called Buddhaphobia and it's the subject of my new book.

The key resides in the very notion of a cartoon.

Zizek on Buddhism

My talk at MLA in January will be about my book project Buddhaphobia. I'm focusing on why on Earth Slavoj Zizek has to savage Buddhism at almost every opportunity. Especially when his mentor Lacan did such a nice job on it in the Tenth Seminar.
