Overview

Revolutionary and innovative, Jacques Lacan's work lies at the epicenter of modern thought about otherness, subjectivity, sexual difference, the law, and enjoyment. This new translation of Lacan's yearlong deliberation on psychoanalysis and contemporary social order offers welcome, readable access to the brilliant author's seminal thinking. These deliberations took place at the time of the foundation of the Department of Psychoanalysis at the University of Paris (Vincennes), an event that raised for Lacan the question of the place that psychoanalytic knowledge might occupy in the university. The aspirations of a radical student movement were also an immediate cause for Lacan's reflection. Topics include Freud, Marx and Hegel, patterns of social and sexual behavior, and the nature and function of science and knowledge.
