Collected Seminars of Jacques Lacan

(.pdf & .epub)

An incomplete digital collection of the English translations of the famous seminars delivered by the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan throughout his lifetime.

It would be fair to say that there are few twentieth century thinkers who have had such a far-reaching influence on subsequent intellectual life in the humanities as Jacques Lacan. Lacan’s “return to the meaning of Freud” profoundly changed the institutional face of the psychoanalytic movement internationally. His seminars in the 1950s were one of the formative environments of the currency of philosophical ideas that dominated French letters in the 1960s and’70s, and which has come to be known in the Anglophone world as “post-structuralism.”
