In The Collected Jokes of Slavoj Žižek, Audun Mortensen (b. 1985) has collected every joke cited or paraphrased by the Slovenian philosopher in his English books, from The Sublime Object of Ideology (1989) to Living in the End Times (2010).
Mortensen printed a single copy of the work in coffee-table format in April 2011. The expanded version is published by Flamme Forlag in an edition of 300. Afterword by Momus (Nick Currie).
The book has been recommended by The Guardian.
(In this book) we see the charming playfulness of the great masters of philosophy, and perhaps begin to recognise philosophy itself, at its highest, lightest level, as something akin to laughter and joking; ‘the smile of the gods’ … It is as if the joke has become for Žižek what algebra is for his old ally and rival Badiou: the most concise way Žižek knows to sum up a universal situational shape. – Momus
