Reviews and Endorsements

‘This book is very original. It intends to introduce the reader to present-day clinical developments within the Lacanian orientation and at the same time to serve as a subjective testimony, a Bildungsroman. Its presentation of twenty-first century psychoanalysis plunges the advances of Jacques-Alain Miller’s reading of the “last Lacan” within the current American clinical context. The Bildungsroman describes the subjective path between the encounter with Lacan in the humanities at Duke University and the modulation given to its clinical practice by the author, Chair of a Psychiatry Department. This route goes through the experience of a psychoanalytic cure in its present-day form. One of the aims of the book is to introduce the theoretical displacements of Lacan’s teachings as answers to the clinical challenges met by a practitioner as aware of the societal aspects of the symptom as to its singular aspects. And so he does! It’s a success.’
—Éric Laurent, past president of the World Association of Psychoanalysis
