    • Shahd : A small book that makes people smile

    An actual journey with many stops, Slavoj is brainstorming and exploring different meanings of what an event really is, He starts with the concept of framing and reframing the event itself, and that gap that lays between the event itself and its effects, the he explores from the meaning in event to philosophy to psychoanalysis to politics. He also comes across many philosophical concepts in understanding each of these stops. it is a very small and practical book that simply helps you discover different ideas, while not having the most organized line of thoughts, slavoj is always getting somewhere through telling different historical events and such.
