Read full description of the books:
I'm not quite as blown away as I was with Seminar no.3 on the Psychoses, but, as always, Lacan is a pleasure to read, if not a little frustrating/demanding. This is earlier in his career when he's more interested in the symbolic register's situation over and against the real and the imaginary (as opposed to his later work which is trendier among humanities' students, wherein the real as impossible or as lack is emphasized against the imaginary and the symbolic orders)--for that reason it gives a clear if rudimentary account of the symbolic.
And again, as with The Psychoses, this course begins at a slow crawl; the first forty pages or so seem to wander in all directions (dry, disparate, needless directions). But Lacan is a tailor of a pedagogue: he promises to piece together any loose threads and he delivers. The occasional explosive spurts of enrapture are worth the dry spells. Good read.

Read information about the authorJacques-Marie-Émile Lacan was a French psychoanalyst, psychiatrist, and doctor, who made prominent contributions to the psychoanalytic movement. His yearly seminars, conducted in Paris from 1953 until his death in 1981, were a major influence in the French intellectual milieu of the 1960s and 1970s, particularly among post-structuralist thinkers.
Lacan's ideas centered on Freudian concepts such as the unconscious, the castration complex, the ego, focusing on identifications, and the centrality of language to subjectivity. His work was interdisciplinary, drawing on linguistics, philosophy, mathematics, amongst others. Although a controversial and divisive figure, Lacan is widely read in critical theory, literary studies, and twentieth-century French philosophy, as well as in the living practice of clinical psychoanalysis.
