The main text is a transcript of a provocative filmed interview with Lacan. The interviewer, J-A Miller, poses questions often asked by those outside the Lacanian mileau. The second half contains papers and documents relating to Lacan's expulsion and final 'excommunication' from the IPA.

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.
