This volume gathers together the recent writings of the analysts and members of the Freudian School of Melbourne and the Belgian analyst Christian Fierens, displaying the ongoing interrogation by the school of Lacanian psychoanalysis into its history, theories, and practices.

Within the framework of Lacan's interventions in Freudian psychoanalysis, the book in particular highlights Lacan's inventions in theoretical discourse and clinical practice, including the no-sexual relation, the discursive structures of language, the School, the cartel and the pass. Theoretical shibboleths such as the Oedipus complex are questioned, while the historical writings of Sabina Spielrein are read and interpreted anew. Chapters also engage with the psychoanalysis of children, the questions posed by psychoses to psychoanalysis, and the intersection of creativity and the arts in new and original ways.

Bringing together a range of expert contributions, this text will be an illuminating resource for scholars and practitioners of psychoanalysis.
