The essay develops a critical reading of Laclau’s original theory of populism, by relating the claims made in the book The populist reason with some further analysis, conducted in polemical dialogue with Zizek. The interest of this debate is not merely theoretical, because populism is nowadays put to the forefront of the contemporary public arena as the prevailing ‘political’ issue, in an ambivalent sense. Most of the representations that the mainstream thought or the media narrative offer of such outbreaks is quite misleading. To understand its meaning, but also to criticize the possible drifts, we must tear the veil that hides the crisis of the compromise between capitalism and democracy, with its consequences.
