Lacan for Beginners
Jacques Lacan is probably the most influential psychoanalyst since Freud. In fact, around half of all psychoanalysts follow the Lacanian school of thought, yet most people know little about him and his unique approach. While his brilliance is clear, Lacan's ideas can be very difficult to understand. He wrote in an obscure, almost impenetrable style that casually referred to his vast knowledge of philosophy, linguistics and mathematics. Renowned pyschoanalyst Philip Hill introduces and explains these complex themes and ideas with clarity in structured chapters.
