This paper is concerned with the inclusion
−div(a(|∇_u_|)∇_u_) + ∂_u_ G(x, u) ∋ 0 in Ω,
with Dirichlet boundary condition u = 0 on ∂Ω, in the case where the higher order part has slow growth and the lower order part is locally Lipschitz. By using a Mountain Pass theorem for variational-hemivariational inequalities without the Palais–Smale condition in Orlicz–Sobolev spaces, we show the existence of nontrivial solutions of the above inclusion.
