The 'graph of desire' is one of the principal points of reference in Lacanian psychoanalysis. In this book the graph is analyzed in its multiple aspects and relations. Step by step, the author reveals and considers formulations from the simplest to the most complex. The treatment of this issue does not deal only with the development and explanation of its logical, mathematical and topological aspects but also goes through the psychoanalytical theory and practice. The author has immersed himself in Lacan's text "The Subversion of the Subject and the Dialectic of Desire in the Freudian Unconscious" to uncover and bring this fascinating subject to light.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Thanks to this magnificent, in-depth study of one of Lacan's most infamous contributions to psychoanalysis, students and Lacanian scholars will finally be relieved of a major headache. With extraordinary patience and an unfailing commitment to clarity, Alfredo Eidelsztein introduces and explains the "graph of desire" as if he himself had been privy to its production process, leaving no conceptual stone unturned and demonstrating its functionality with numerous clinical examples. Anyone wanting to access Lacan's graph without taking a shortcut needs to have a copy of this invaluable book.'
- Professor Dany Nobus, Chair of Psychology and Psychoanalysis, Head of Social Sciences, Brunel University
