Publisher's Summary

Jacques Lacan was one of the most important psychoanalysts ever to have lived. Building upon the work of Sigmund Freud, he sought to refine Freudian insights with the use of linguistics and mathematics, arguing that "the structure of unconscious is like a language." He is widely misunderstood and often unfairly dismissed as impenetrable. In this clear, wide-ranging primer, Lionel Bailly demonstrates how Lacan’s ideas are still vitally relevant to contemporary issues of mental health treatment. Including coverage of developments in Lacanian psychoanalysis since his death, this is the perfect introduction to the great modern theorist.

Strong introduction to the ineffable

Lacan's brilliance and obtuseness come through in this enjoyable tour of his major innovations. I appreciated the book's framing of Lacanian psychoanalysis as intentionally controversial. The reading is probably as good as it could be, despite the occasional pain of hearing Lacan's mathemes - algebraic notations for linguistic structures - fully articulated. Highly recommended for newcomers to this relevant, fertile body of thought.

Great Introduction to Difficult Thinker

Lacan, challenging but rewarding

way more than what I bargained for, I've listened to the lecture series twice it's difficult to get at first but really fleshes out a lot of what's going on

Great foundation for understanding Lacan

Great for anyone on the cusp of getting into / starting to get a grip of Lacan’s theories. Enjoyed from start to finish.
