Reviews and Endorsements

'Glynos and Stavrakakis have compiled a wide-ranging series of essays which open up new perspectives on psychoanalysis, science and the relations between them. Although psychoanalysts, particularly Lacanians, have been working on these themes for many years there has been no comprehensive English language publication until this volume. This book is essential reading for anyone interested not only in psychoanalysis but also in the philosophy and history of science. Lacan & Science will be a definitive source book for many years to come.'
- Darian Leader, Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research, London

'Extremely readable, this important and wonderfully enlightening book delivers a strong response to sceptics who have long questioned the scientific objectivity of psychoanalysis.'
- Joan Copjec, Director, Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Culture, University at Buffalo

'Lacan & Science embraces contributions by some of the most thoughtful and interesting psychoanalysts and philosophers writing on Lacan today.'
- Russell Grigg, Director, Psychoanalytic Studies, Deakin University, Geelong, Australia
