The philosopher Slavoj Žižek has been called the most dangerous thinker in the West, an intellectual activist with a frenzied appetite for big ideas, and for revealing their hidden life inside our everyday concerns. Will Self is another contrarian who can see a world of contradiction in a grain of sand. Together the two intellectuals battle the ideas of today in search for some common ground.
