Slavoj Zizek For They Know Not What They Do Enjoyment as a Political
There are philosophical books, minor classics even, which are widely known and referred to, although practically no one has actually read them page by page (John Rawls’s Theory of Justice, for example, or Robert Brandom’s Making It Explicit) — a nice example of interpassivity, where some figure of the Other is supposed to do the reading for us. I hope For they know not what they do avoided this fate by, at least, really being read. Although it was overshadowed by the more popular Sublime Object of Ideology, my first book in English published two years earlier, I always considered it a more substantial achievement: it is a book of theoretical work, in contrast to the succession of anecdotes and cinema references in The Sublime Object. For me, the reaction of individual readers to it was a kind of test: those who said: “I was disappointed by it, finding it a little bit boring after all the firecrackers of The Sublime Object,” obviously missed the crucial argument of both books. Even today, my attitude is: those who do not want to talk about For they know not what they do should remain silent about The Sublime Object.
