In this classic work, eight crucial Lacanian ideas are explained through detailed exploration of the theoretical and/or practical context in which Lacan introduced them, the way in which they developed throughout his works, and the questions they were designed to answer. The book does not presuppose any familiarity with Lacanian theory on the part of the reader, nor a prior acquaintance with Lacan’s Écrits or seminars. Originally published in 1998, the ideas within are more relevant than ever and this newly reissued volume will prove invaluable to today’s scholars of Lacanian thought.
“By detailing the constitutive incompletion of the Lacanian project, the contributors have guaranteed the success of their book, which will remain a major reference for a long time to come.”
