Jacques Lacan is renowned as a theoretician of psychoanalysis whose work is still influential in many countries. He refashioned psychoanalysis in the name of philosophy and linguistics at a time when it faced certain intellectual decline. Focusing on key terms in Lacan's often difficult, idiosyncratic development of psychoanalysis, this volume brings new perspectives to the work of an intimidating influential thinker.

Editorial Reviews

"Superb... this book shoud appeal to anyone interested in the development of Freudian thought and the history of ideas concerning human subjectivity. Highly recommended." Choice
