Seminar of Jacques Lacan #20: On Feminine Sexuality, the Limits of Love and Knowledge: Encore 1972-1973by Jacques Lacan
Synopses & Reviews
Often controversial, always inspired, Jacques Lacan here weighs theories of the relationship between the desire for love and the attainment of knowledge from such thinkers as Aristotle, Marx, and Freud. He leads us through mathematics, philosophy, religion, and, naturally, psychoanalysis into an entirely new way of interpreting the two most fundamental human drives. Long anticipated by English-speaking readers, this annotated translation presents Lacan's most sophisticated work on love and desire.
In his psycholinguistic exploration of the relationship between the desire for love and the attainment of knowledge, Jacques Lacan leads into an new way of interpreting the two most fundamental human drives.
A startling psycholinguistic exploration of the boundaries of love and knowledge.
