In Key Concepts of Lacanian Psychoanalysis, 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 Ecrits or the Seminars.



Excerpt from Key Concepts of Lacanian Psychoanalysis

“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.” —Joan Copjec
