Slavoj Žižek, one of our best known living philosophers, has a proven ability to antagonise both left and right.

The TLS called him an "intellectual rock star" and the New Yorker referred to him as the "Elvis of cultural theory". In a new book, Against the Double Blackmail, in response to Europe's refugee crisis, Žižek argues that the left must shed its liberal taboos in favour of global, class solidarity.

Join him in conversation with Guardian columnist Gary Younge.
