Editorial Reviews

Presented in two four-hour sections, this audiobook presents theorist Lacan to beginners. Diedre Rubenstein narrates in a sharp, clear voice, reminiscent of a favorite college professor, the one who could keep you on the edge of your chair on a Monday morning.
Often misunderstood, Lacan remains one of the more difficult theorists for people to understand. But rather than read his primary texts, many of which focus on reevaluating the work of Freud, why not listen to Lionel Bailly's accessible interpretation of Lacan's work? This audio is perfect for those without formal training in psychoanalysis, but who wish to get a sense of Lacan's complex and brilliant work.

Publisher's Summary

Jacques Lacan was one of the most important psychoanalysts ever to have lived. Building upon the work of Sigmund Freud, he sought to refine Freudian insights with the use of linguistics and mathematics, arguing that "the structure of unconscious is like a language." He is widely misunderstood and often unfairly dismissed as impenetrable. In this clear, wide-ranging primer, Lionel Bailly demonstrates how Lacan’s ideas are still vitally relevant to contemporary issues of mental health treatment. Including coverage of developments in Lacanian psychoanalysis since his death, this is the perfect introduction to the great modern theorist.
