Lacan developed his theory and practice of psychoanalysis on the basis of Freud’s original work. In his “return to Freud” he did not only elaborate and revise some of Freud’s innovative ideas, but turned to important questions and problems in Freud’s theory that had remained obscure and unresolved, and provided a new way of articulating these issues and their implication for psychoanalytic theory and practice.

This book offers a selection of introductory lectures given at the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) about some of the fundamental concepts of psychoanalysis which aim at exploring the trajectory of their development from their original basis in Freud’s work to their elaboration by Lacan.

The book will be of interest to readers from different backgrounds, including the clinical and academic field, social and cultural studies and the arts, for whom psychoanalytic ideas may be a relatively new field to explore, or who are looking for new perspectives to develop their ideas about psychoanalysis.

About the Editor:

Astrid Gessert is a practising psychoanalyst and a member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR) and of The College of Psychoanalysts - UK (CP-UK). She is a regular contributor to the CFAR public lecture and training programme and lectures and facilitates seminars at other psychoanalytic organisations.
