Overview

Lacanian Antiphilosophy and the Problem of Anxiety: An Uncanny Little Object by Brian Robertson

This book brings Jacques Lacan's work on the problem of anxiety into a jarring and fruitful confrontation with phenomenology, existentialism, and the 'jargon' of authenticity. Brian Robertson masterfully upends a host of received philosophical truths - most notably, and crucially, the idea that anxiety 'lacks an object.'
