The Clinical Lacan, a companion text to the Introduction to the Reading of Lacan, focuses on the concept of the psychic structures of desire. With the help of exciting clinical examples, Dor explains the crucial difference between symptomsthat is, what can be phenomenologically grasped - and the actual psychic structure of the subject, a structure that can be revealed only through the discourse of the patient in the psychoanalytic situation. In keeping with the intent of the Lacanian Clinical Field series, this manual brings life and practically to a psychoanalytic movement that has been misperceived in this country as over-intellectualized and divorced from the daily vicissitudes of analytic work.

Originally published: Northvale, N.J.: J. Aronson, c1997
