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 Lacanian psychoanalyst and supervisor who trained in France with the psychoanalytic institute Jacques Lacan created shortly before his death, the Ecole de la Cause Freudienne in Paris. He has translated several of Lacan's works into English - including Ecrits, The Names-of-the-Father, The Triumph of Religion, and Seminars VI, VIII, XVI, and XX - 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, Against Understanding (2 volumes), and Lacan on Love. More recently, he published A Clinical Introduction to Freud: Techniques for Everyday Practice. A board member of the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center, he has also penned several mysteries involving a character loosely based on Jacques Lacan: The Psychoanalytic Adventures of Inspector Canal, Death by Analysis, Odor di Murderer/Scent of a Killer, The Purloined Love, and most recently The Da Vinci Staircase: Love and Turbulence in the Loire Valley. His books have been translated into over a dozen languages.
