An elegant work about a complex character and his work, which avoids drawing the reader into the esoteric language of the specialist. Lacan - a founder of the Ecole Freudienne de Paris - was a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst whose multitude of writings showed him to be variously a guru, a master, a charlatan, and a surrealist artist. 120 pages.

Reviews and Endorsements

In this concise study, Alain Vanier offers a clear and informed reassessment of Lacan's multitude of writings and ideas and how they revolutionized psychoanalysis. Specialists and newcomers alike will appreciate this examination of Lacan, a complex and influential figure who was by turns a master, a charlatan, and a surrealist artist.

"Unbecoming characterizations are legion in the attempts to define him. . . . With this synthesizing work one will better understand the essential contribution of Lacan's work."
-Cultures en Mouvement

"Vanier's presentation clearly and succinctly reveals Lacan's final effort to mold his theory in a formal language. . . . The very quickness of the presentation, while avoiding reductionism, renders vivid and exciting the landmarks of Lacan's thought."
