This text presents the theory of subjectivity found in the work of Jacques Lacan. Against the tide of post-structuralist thinkers who announce the "death of the subject", the book explores what it means to come into being as a subject where impersonal forces once reigned.

About the Author(s)

Bruce Fink is a practising Lacanian psychoanalyst and analytic supervisor who trained in France with the psychoanalytic institute that Jacques Lacan created shortly before his death, the École de la Cause freudienne in Paris. He has translated several of Lacan’s works into English, including Écrits: The First Complete Edition and Seminar XX: Encore, and is the author of numerous books on Lacan, including The Lacanian Subject, A Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis, Lacan to the Letter, Fundamentals of Psychoanalytic Technique, and most recently Against Understanding.
