Jacques Lacan is widely recognized as a key figure in the history of psychoanalysis and one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th Century. In Anxiety, now available paperback, he explores the nature of anxiety, suggesting that it is not nostalgia for the object that causes anxiety but rather its imminence.

In what was to be the last of his year-long seminars at Saint-Anne hospital, Lacanís 1962-63 lessons form the keystone to this classic phase of his teaching. Here we meet for the first time the notorious a in its oral, anal, scopic and vociferated guises, alongside Lacanís exploration of the question of the Ďanalystís desireí. Arriving at these concepts from a multitude of angles, Lacan leads his audience with great care through a range of recurring themes such as anxiety between jouissance and desire, counter-transference and interpretation, and the fantasy and its frame.

This important volume, which forms Book X of The Seminar of Jacques Lacan, will be of great interest to students and practitioners of psychoanalysis and to students and scholars throughout the humanities and social sciences, from literature and critical theory to sociology, psychology and gender studies.

"Despite the extraordinary range and reach of his work, anxiety is really Lacanís subject. In this book - which is among the most remarkable psychoanalytic and philosophical works of our time - Lacan shows us how much more there may be to say about this fundamental experience that paralyses speech and so immobilises peopleís lives."
Adam Phillips, psychoanalyst and writer
