'The Seminar: Books I and II have a special place because of their value as an introduction to Lacan...[They] are a sure path of entry into Lacan's critique of ego psychology....Lacan's work underscores that part of Freud's message that is most revolutionary for our time. The individual is 'decentred'. There is no autonomous self. What sex was to the Victorians, the question of free will is to our new Fin-de-Siecle.' --Sherry Turkle, 'London Review of Books'
