Jacques Lacan has had a major influence on contemporary discourse. This translation of selected writings from his famous work offers access to nine of his most significant contributions to psychoanalytical theory and technique, spanning 30 years of his intellectual career. This is a new translation of these seminal essays by top Lacanian scholar Bruce Fink.

About the Author(s)

Jacques Lacan (1901-1981) came to psychoanalysis by way of medicine and psychiatry. In 1951 he turned his attention to the training of analysts, and this was one of the issues which led him and his circle to part company with the Société Psychanalytique de Paris. He became, in 1953, the first President of a new group, the Société Française de Psychanalyse, whose declared aim was a return to the true teaching of Freud. Eleven years later the Société Française was dissolved and, under Lacan's direction, gave birth to the École Freudienne de Paris. Jacques Lacan was a practising psychoanalyst and teacher up until his death in 1981.
