In this classic work, eight crucial Lacanian ideas are explained through detailed exploration of the theoretical and/or practical context in which Lacan introduced them, the way in which they developed throughout his works, and the questions they were designed to answer. The book does not presuppose any familiarity with Lacanian theory on the part of the reader, nor a prior acquaintance with Lacan's Ecrits or seminars. Originally published in 1998, the ideas within are more relevant than ever and this newly reissued volume will prove invaluable to today's scholars of Lacanian thought.

"Dany Nobus has not only assembled an outstanding collection of essays which clarify and expand upon crucial elements in Lacan's teaching, but perhaps more impressively, he has also constructed an introduction to Lacanian theory and practice that is both clear and sophisticated, and by all means definitive."--Kenneth Reinhard, Associate Professor of English, University of California, Los Angeles
"By detailing the constitutive incompletion of the Lacanian project, the contributors have guaranteed the success of their book, that will remain a major reference for a long time to come."--Joan Copjec, Professor of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University (02/27/2017)
