The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis: Book XI of the Seminar of Jacques Lacan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jacques Lacans writings, and especially the seminars for which he has become famous, offer a controversial, radical reappraisal of the legacy bequeathed by Freud. This volume is based on a year's seminar in which Dr. Lacan addressed a larger, less specialized audience than ever before, among whom he could not assume familiarity with his work. For his listeners then, and for his readers now, he wanted to "introduce a certain coherence into the major concepts on which psycho-analysis is based," namely, the unconscious, repetition, the transference, and the drive. Along the way he argues for a structural affinity between psychoanalysis and language, discusses the relation of psychoanalysis to religion, and reveals his particular stance on topics ranging from sexuality and death to alienation and repression. This book constitutes the essence of Dr. Lacan's sensibility.

Also available from Lacan's Seminar: Book I, Freud's Writings on Technique; Book II, The Theory of the Ego in Psychoanalytic Theory; Book III, The Psychoses; Book VII, The Ethics of Psychoanalysis; and Book XX, On Feminine Sexuality, The Limits of Love and Knowledge(all from Norton).

Synopsis:

A complete translation of the seminar that Jacques Lacan gave in the course of a year's teaching within the training programme of the Socit Franaise de Psychanalyse.

Synopsis:

The French text was prepared by Jacques-Alain Miller in consultation with Jacques Lacan, from the transcriptions of the seminar.
