Lacan: A Beginner's Guide

( 9 )

Overview


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, arguing that “the structure of unconscious is like a language”.

Overview


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, arguing that “the structure of unconscious is like a language”. Controversial throughout his lifetime both for adopting mathematical concepts in his psychoanalytic framework and for advocating therapy sessions of varying length, 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. Defending Lacan from his numerous detractors, past and present, Bailly guides the reader through Lacan’s canon, from “l'objet petit a” to “The Mirror Stage” and beyond. Including coverage of developments in Lacanian psychoanalysis since his death, this is the perfect introduction to the great modern theorist.

    Honor's bio

    Name: <br> Honor, but would like change to a warrior name. <p> Age: <br> 4 sunrises, almost 5 by now. <p> Gender: <br> she-cat. <p> Fur color: <br> cream. <p> Markings: <br> white on chest, underbelly, and tail, as well as a four-pointed white star shape on forehead. <p> Fur length: <br> Short but silky. <p> Eye color: <br> A striking white. <p> History: <br> My mother was one of Princess's kits, a dark ginger shecat with orange eyes, named Russet. Russet was nice, but she was mating Scourge. When my litter was born, Scourge planned to kill them one by one and convince Russet that they were all born dead. He picked off and killed three of them, my littermates. Then, Russet found out he was killing her kits, and protected the last one. A bicolor calico, cream and white. Scourge could only get to my face while I was protected, so he ripped my eyelids open. That resulted in me being blind, if you haven't figured that out. Russet managed to get Scourge to leave, and she lifted me on her back and carried me into the forest. She fled back to her house with her mother. I was found in the forest by Pheonixstar and was taken into HauntedClan. So here I am. <p> Theme: <br> It's Time by Imagine Dragons. <p> Fave Song: <br> See "Theme". <p> Type of nook: <br> Simple Touch, E-ink. <p> <p> I'm done with my awesome bio! Wreck it Ralph, you rule! Slenderman has a lack of face!
