    This conversation between Ian Parker and Slavoj Žižek took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in September 2003. It is organised around questions raised by the manuscript of Ian Parker’s book (published in English by Pluto Press in 2004, translated into Slovene and published by Ropot in 2008). Žižek comments on the claim, first, that there are deadlocks in his writing, and then we move on to discuss the role of specific theoretical elements articulated around these deadlocks – German idealism, Marxism, and then, from Lacan, the ‘act’, the objet petit a, Antigone and the real – before concluding with reflections on the place of religion and so why we come back to Hegel.
