Feminist Philosophers calls attention to the personal statement under Slavoj Zizek's picture (mild cranial deformity, generous hair coverage)--
The bit about women reminds me of the days when men used to exclaim quite the opposite-- 'I love women!" I never understood what it meant. They love all women? Even the cashier at the 7-11? "Women are impossible" ...."I love women"... I think this sort of thing is supposed to make us think the speaker is manly and passionate. Zzzz.
But it's the bit about writing that really struck me. I always thought I might have something in common with Zizek, because his name is just about mine spelled backwards, but I can't relate. I like to be gripped by a philosophical problem, and would rather be in the middle of writing a book than be done.
I'm glad I wasn't the only person who noticed how weird a bunch of these philosophers looked!
Also, who takes Zizek seriously as a philosopher anyway? So-called Continental types, I guess? I had always thought of him as more of "a character" that an academic other philosophers take seriously, "Continental" or otherwise, but what do I know!
I know...terrible! I've seen a lot of these folks in person and they don't actually look like specimens of cranial abnormality.
Frankly, I've never read a single word of Zizek, despite my positive feelings about his name.
Philosophers are Hawt.
Also, Zizek is F-ing crazy. But he wrote the best essay on The Matrix EVAR!
I have a mild kase of kewl kidz today. Just in case you couldn't tell.
Jean-Paul Sartre was an ugly man and his strbismus didn't help !
Here's a rather amusing video clip of Zizek making fun of vegetarians... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TqyKsnQD38
Zizek's 2nd wife is a stunning Argentinian woman -- a lingerie model who is 30 years his junior. (According to this July 2010 article they are in the middle of a divorce. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/books/authorinterviews/7871302/Slavoj-Zizek-the-worlds-hippest-philosopher.html)
