Left Forum presentations: 'A critique of Lacanian reductionism in the work of Slavoj Žižek'

We are providing a link to the audio of Harrison Fluss's presentation from the 'Permanent Revolution' panel at the Left Forum held on March 19, 2011. Fluss's topic, 'Bolshevism beyond good and evil: A critique of Lacanian reductionism in the work of Slavoj Žižek', provides a much needed response to the work of Slavoj Žižek,  particularly in the latter's role as a psychoanalyst of Bolshevism and Leon Trotsky. Note that the very beginning of Fluss's presentation can be found following the presentation by Charles Herr that we posted previously.

Certainly, it is true that the Socialist Equality Party neglects these psychological dimensions, but it's not true of Marxism as a whole.
