PARKER, Ian. The truth about overidentification. Mental [online]. 2006, vol.4, n.7, pp. 15-34. ISSN 1679-4427.
The article approaches the psychoanalitical concept of overidentification in two ways: one way understands the imagined as a powerful fixed reasonable place of thought and views with entanglement the chaotic and the irrational. The other one mobilizes anarchic symbolic forces to discomfit and disturb hierarchical organized systems. Later, it's analysed the strategy of the Neue Slowenische Kunst - NSK of using the overidentification as a weapon against the Tito-Stalinism and the present neoliberalism. Finally, some peculiarities of Zizek's trajectory from psychoanalysis to politcs are approached.
