  1. 95 | The Politics of Mental Health — Talking Politics

    This week we discuss how and why mental health has become a growing political issue.  What are the differences in the way the political parties approach this problem?  Is it something that unites or divides people across generations and classes?  And what can politicians do to help us cope?  Plus we talk about whether politics itself has become a more stressful job than it used to be.  With Helen Thompson and Chris Brooke.

    Event Date: 17 May 2017

    London WC1E 7JL

    The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities presents:

    ‘You have to be stupid to see that’: Ideology in Daily Life – A Masterclass with Slavoj Zizek

    Reality as Constricted Ideology

    Speaker: Slavoj Žižek, Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities

    Chair: Stephen Frosh, Pro-Vice-Master Birkbeck University of London

    According to Giorgio Agamben,‘thought is the courage of hopelessness’ – an insight especially pertinent for our historical moment when even the most pessimist diagnostics finishes with an uplifting hint at the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. The true courage is not to see this mirage, not to imagine an alternative, but to accept the consequences of the fact that there is no discernible alternative: the dream of an alternative is a sign of theoretical cowardice, it functions as a fetish which prevents us to think to the end the deadlock of our predicament. The true courage is to admit that the light at the end of the tunnel is most likely the headlight of another train approaching us from the opposite direction, from ecological threat to a new world war.

    The Masterclass will be spread over two sessions:1. Monday 15 May, 2-4pm: Ideology as Augmented Reality

    1. Wednesday 17 May, 2-4pm: Reality as Constricted Ideology
