Reviews and Endorsements

There are few books devoted to the later Lacan. This book will be consulted regularly as a reference point for those Anglophones who continue to follow Lacanian teaching in order to articulate what it means to have a subject of the unconscious. Lacan is not going away and books like this keep the knowledge living in dialogue with its clinical context. - Kareen Malone, coeditor of 'After Lacan: Clinical Practice and the Subject of the Unconscious'

"It is momentous to have, after nearly a decade, a book that features so many of the most eminent members of the École de la Cause Freudienne. None of the essay collections on Lacan that have been published have made available the highly significant, ongoing work of this French school in English." - Maire Jaanus, coeditor of 'Lacan in the German-Speaking World'
