Reviews and Endorsements

'This collection of papers is a perfect demonstration of the Freudian School of Melbourne's vitality. It seeks to prove the idea that Lacan posited at the end of his life: the reinvention of psychoanalysis by someone who has dedicated his life to it (as the title of the first chapter by David Pereira makes explicit). Consequently, these papers provide the most decisive Freudian and Lacanian outcomes (clearly distinguished), which are applied in a practice that takes account of the historical and social sphere in which they evolve. The universality of the few theoretical statements makes sense if and only if these statements are confronted with subjective and cultural particularities. These particularities are felicitously present throughout the book, giving it a character that might be sought in vain in other publications.'
- Guy Le Gaufey, analyst in Paris, former member of the École Freudienne de Paris, co-founder of the first French Lacanian revue Littoral, and former director of the École Lacanienne de Psychanalyse
