Formatted abstract
'Thought is Grievance: On Zizek's Parallax' explores the relationship between the concept of "parallax" Slavoj Zizek has recently developed and the largely unthematised notion of "grievance" that can been seen throughout Zizek's work, but particularly from The Ticklish Subject (1999) on. What is the connection between parallax and grievance? Why is parallax always associated with grievance, and why is grievance for its part a form of parallax? The essay takes these questions up as a preliminary to elaborating Zizek's understanding of the role of philosophy, and indeed of thought in general.
