In this classic work, 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 Lacan’s Écrits or seminars. Originally published in 1998, the ideas within are more relevant than ever and this newly reissued volume will prove invaluable to today’s scholars of Lacanian thought.
With contributions by Dylan Evans, Bruce Fink, Russell Grigg, Katrien Libbrecht, Dany Nobus, Luke Thurston, Paul Verhaeghe, and Slavoj Žižek.
Reviews and Endorsements
‘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. 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, Professor of English, Comparative Literature and Media Study, Director of the Centre for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Culture, University of Buffalo
‘Dany Nobus has not only assembled an outstanding collection of essays which clarify and expand upon crucial elements in Lacan’s teaching, perhaps more impressively, he has constructed and introduction to Lacanian theory and practice that is both clear and sophisticated, and by all means definitive.’
—Kenneth Reinhard, Associate Professor of English, University of California, Los Angeles
‘Meticulously documented so as to give immediate access to the currently published texts and also those still to come, these searching analyses of crucial topics will set the mind to work without any prior knowledge of Lacan’s texts.’
—Elizabeth Wright, Lecturer and Fellow in German, Girton College, University of Cambridge
