Today, Big Think hosts their exclusive interview with Slavoj Žižek on the publication of his new book Less Than Nothing: Hegel and the Shadow of Dialectical Materialism. In this 3-minute segment, Žižek discusses some of the key issues that frame his more than 1,000-page mega-book on Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, who Žižek considers his most important influence.

Voted TIME Magazine's #1  website for news and information in 2011, Big Think has selected Less Than Nothing as its May book of the month and will be posting a series of video interviews with Žižek over the next several days.
