Highly recommended viewing: Charlie Rose’s recent interview of Slavoj Zizek.
The two points of the interview I liked the most:
1) When Zizek says the role of the philosopher is to ask the right questions.
2) Zizek’s bemusement at Rose’s characterization of the Arab Spring as non-ideological. This was precisely the ideological move that Zizek unmasked in his classic 1988 book The Sublime Object of Ideology (still my favorite Zizek).
