“Here I confirm my philosophical arrogance” – Žižek

My motto for the new year comes from Slavoj Žižek – yes, Žižek – in conversation with Alain Badiou: “I am prepared to advocate my views in a democratic way; but not, however, to allow others to decide democratically what my views are – here I confirm my philosophical arrogance.”

– Slavoj Žižek & Alain Badiou, Philosophy in the Present, ed. P. Engelmann, trans. P. Thomas and A. Toscano (Cambridge: Polity, 2009), p. 98
