"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
