This concise study offers a clear and informed reassessment of Lacan's ideas and how they revolutionized psychoanalysis. Specialist and newcomers alike will appreciate this examination of a complex figure who was by turns a master, a charlatan and a surrealist artist. -- from the publisher

“Vanier's presentation clearly and succinctly reveals Lacan's final effort to mold his theory in a formal language, as well as Lacan's wish to refind and redefine the place of the father in the becoming of the human and in the functioning of society. The very quickness of the presentation , while avoiding reductionism, renders vivid and exciting the landmarks of Lacan's thought.”

Alan Vanier, M.D., Ph.D., is president of Espace Analytique and an associate professor of psychoanalysis at the University of Paris VII.
