Reviews and Endorsements

'Pavón Cuéllar not only rejuvenates the field of discourse analysis, he completely redefines it, opening it up via the multiple conceptual resources available within Lacanian psychoanalysis. More than a primer to a new form of discourse analysis, this text functions as a handbook for critical qualitative methodology more generally, and as a source book for the analytical potential for combining social psychology and Lacanian thought.'
- Derek Hook, Social Psychology, London School of Economics, UK

'David Pavón Cuéllar's thorough and uncompromising book on Lacan, discourse analysis, and social psychology should open up new paths in discourse analysis for those with a psychoanalytic interest or those who profess such an interest. Discursive psychology is a very smart field, and this is an enormously significant contribution to its continued innovation in the future.'
- Kareen Ror Malone, Professor, University of West Georgia, Member, Après Coup, New York, USA

'David Pavón Cuéllar's From the Conscious Interior to an Exterior Unconscious will be invaluable for anyone interested in the relation between Lacanian psychoanalysis, discourse analysis and contemporary psychology. It gives a scholarly and in-depth interpretation of Lacanian key-concepts, while at the same time reframing Lacan's clinical ideas such that they become instruments for detailed critical text analysis.'
- Stijn Vanheule, Department of Psychoanalysis and Clinical Consulting, Ghent University, Belgium

'I would argue that this book offers an exceptionally systematic and clear presentation of Lacan's work, a thorough engagement from a Lacanian perspective with dominant theories in psychology and the social sciences and a scholarly proposal for an approach to discourse analysis deriving from Lacanian theory. I think that it constitutes a landmark in the field of psychoanalytically inspired discursive approaches and should be read by everyone working or interested in this field.'
- Eugenie Georgaca, Department of Psychology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
