Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Included are essays by some of the most interesting intellectual figures in France, such as Lyotard, Mannoni, and Andrade. Richardson leads the reader into Lacanian territory in a clear and fully comprehensible way. The Schreber case engenders one of Freud’s most memorable literary excursions, and the essays in this collection provide startling and original insights. By treating the Schreber materials as text, new literary, critical and epistemological issues as well as psychological questions are opened up.” — Edith Wyschogrod, Queens College

"This is an important work, largely because it illuminates and makes accessible the larger issues of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis through the careful and very specific treatment of one groundbreaking case, that of Daniel Paul Schreber. I was entertained as well as instructed by this volume, which illustrates the diversity that psychoanalytical discourse has assumed. It is a major contribution to psychoanalytical theory.” — Henry Sussman, State University of New York at Buffalo
