Slavoj Zizek has been called "the most dangerous philosopher in the West". That may or may not be true. To me, however, he is certainly the most interesting, especially when it comes to explaining contemporary culture. His "Pervert's Guides" to both "Cinema" and "Ideology" are eye opening.
...and by the way, when Zizek is speaking of the "pervert's perspective", he is really speaking from the perspective of a Lacanian/Freudian Analyst in accordance with Lacan's Four Discourse Theory.
