Jacques Lacan's thinking revolutionised the theory and practice of psychoanalysis and had a major impact in fields as diverse as film studies, literary criticism, feminist theory and philosophy. Yet his writings are notorious for their complexity and idiosyncratic style. Emphasising the clinical basis of Lacan's work, An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis is an ideal companion to his ideas for readers in every discipline where his influence is felt. The Dictionary features:
* over 200 entries, explaining Lacan's own terminology and his use of common psychoanalytic expressions
* details of the historical and institutional context of Lacan's work
* reference to the origins of major concepts in the work of Freud, Saussure, Hegel and other key thinkers
* a chronology of Lacan's life and works.

Review: An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis

User Review  - Gina - Goodreads

This is a really thorough explanation of concepts and terms found throughout Lacan's seminars. I recommend it to anyone who loves Lacan but struggles with him as much as I do. Read full review

Review: An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis

User Review  - Megan - Goodreads

Incredibly useful for anyone regularly reading literature that constantly refers to Lacan, but yet who doesn't want to read all of Lacan's work to understand it. (Time is just too precious for that.) Read full review
