D+ Žižek, pseudo philosopher?

Slavoj Žižek is a philosophical rock star who, with the help of Hermetic philosophers such as Jacques Lacan and W.F. Hegel, tries to understand the world. His influence on the Humanities and Cultural Studies is immense. Institutionally he certainly belongs to philosophy, but should we take this man seriously? And does he take himself seriously?

Round table with prof. Filip Buekens (Higher Institute of Philosophy, KU Leuven) and Geerdt Magiels (science philosopher).
Following the film Žižek!
This conversation will be in Dutch.
In collaboration with KU Leuven.

Docville PLUS

In recent years, DOCVILLE has made a name for itself by offering in-depth content about various topics and cinematic concepts. In addition to film screenings with Q&A’s, there are the DOCVILLE+ sessions: debates and panel discussions on current themes in response to a film on the programme. This year DOCVILLE is happy to collaborate even more extensively with our partner Canvas.

Focus on Philosophy

Is there a word that conveys a more beautiful ambition than the word philosophy? The desire of wisdom. Philosophy is the comprehensive study of the meaning of the most universal aspects of existence and of the validity of our thinking about them. Forget the cliche of abstract topics for crusty professors. These questions have a real link to our daily lives, now and in the future. Leave it to DOCVILLE to find special documentaries about philosophy that will leave you feeling inspired.
