Funny, but kinda True

10 Aug

Courtesy of Andrew Sullivan’s blog, I was bemused by this little explanation by the eccentric philosopher Slavoj Zizek of the limits and perils of philanthropic charity.  His piercing critique aims at the heart of our conceptions of what makes us feel good about charity and unmasks its hypocritical posture.  But I actually have a little Christian critique of Zizek here, I’ll be blogging about shortly.

    I love love love this piece in particular. I’m also getting hooked on the TED talks. Look for Anna Deveare Smith’s piece on imagination.
