Zizek: The Reality of the Virtual is a philosophical lecture given by cultural theorist, Slavoj Vivek. He focuses on topics such as belief, existentialism, and materialism and examines differences in opinion on the theme of a utopian society. Slavoj Vivek is a professor at the Ljubliana University in Slovenia. He discusses what is known as the Lacanian Triad. This includes the real, the symbolic and the imaginary. Zizek believes in one universal truth, and rejects postmodern and liberal arguments. In fact he makes the point that tolerance and acceptance are negative influences in the move toward complete social freedom. He also touches upon the subjects of democracy, socialism and materialism. Likewise he looks into the cultural and linguistic ramification of many of today's belief systems. Slavoj Zizek gained recognition in the academic community for this first published work, The Sublime Object of Ideology. This lecture was released in 2007 under Olive Films.
