Žižek, alone.

By writing so prodigiously, and in opposition to apparently everybody else, in terms of style Slavoj Žižek seeks to deny affiliation with any other contemporary thinkers. Writing so much is an effort against particulars, it is an attempt to ascend to the level of the universal. In short, he seeks to deny any broader context for his work by becoming his own context.
