Deutsches Haus at NYU and the Department of German at NYU present a talk by Slavoj Žižek, Global Distinguished Professor of German at NYU, who will speak on “Is Hegel Dead—Or Are We Dead in the Eyes of Hegel? A Hegelian View of the Present Age.”
Introduced by Avital Ronell, Professor of German and Comparative Literature at NYU.

The question we should ask is not: is "Hegel" still alive, is his thought of any use for us today? The true question is: what are we - our global capitalist world - in the eyes of Hegel? What if, from the Hegelian standpoint, we are all dead - in what sense? Wolf Bierman once wrote that, while the spiritualist question is "Is there life after death?" the materialist question is: "Is there life before death?" Are we really alive today, alive in the sense of ecstatic opening which makes life worth living?

Slavoj Žižek, Ph.D., is a senior researcher at the Institute of Sociology, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and a visiting professor at a number of American Universities (Columbia, Princeton, New School for Social Research, New York University, University of Michigan). He obtained his Ph.D. in Philosophy in Ljubljana studying Psychoanalysis. He also studied at the University of Paris. Slavoj Zizek is a cultural critic and philosopher who is internationally known for his innovative interpretations of Jacques Lacan. He is the author of The Indivisible Remainder; The Sublime Object of Ideology; The Metastases of Enjoyment; Looking Awry: Jacques Lacan through Popular Culture; The Plague of Fantasies and The Ticklish Subject.

Avital Ronell is a University Professor in the Humanities and in the Departments of German and Comparative Literature at New York University. Her research spans the fields of literary studies, psychoanalysis, feminist philosophy, political philosophy, and ethics. As Jacques Derrida Professor of Philosophy, she also teaches regularly at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. Among her recent books are Loser Sons: Politics and Authority (University of Illinois Press, 2012); The Test Drive (University of Illinois Press, 2007); Stupidity (University of Illinois Press, 2003).
