    One thought on “Mapping Ideology”

    1. No se puede ver este libro como un todo, puesto que está compuesto de muchos artículos y capítulos de libros de distintos autores. Aunque Zizek los seleccionó y ordenó de una forma en que vayan "dialogando". Mis favoritos son los del propio Zizek, Althusser y Eagleton. También interesantes los relativos a la Escuela de Francfort. No creo que sea eso si una muy buena forma de introducirse a la ideología, la mayoría de los textos son complejos, y están inmersos dentro de discusiones filos [...]

    2. Mapping Ideologies explores the development of the concept of ideology through a series of essays written by or about the most important western Marxist philosophers of the twentieth century. The essays address three main tenets of Western Marxist treatment of ideology. The concept as a material condition of advanced industrial capitalism in the works of Lukacs, Adorno, Althusser and Gramsci; ideology as a Lacanian linguistic structure; ideology and feminist theory relative to Marxism. The essay [...]

    3. Great selection, many are classics of what I suppose is meant by the designation "Western Marxism." Lucacs, Althusser, Jameson, Eagleton, Bourdieu more. Problem: Zizek introduction does not serve the reader very well, except as an ok encounter with his writing. Does not set up the essays, how they relate, reception,etcPublisher Verso did not add any help here either. Very minor attention to where they first appeared, where they stand in relation to the rest of authors work.
