On Feminine Sexuality: The Limits of Love and Knowledge
Jacques Lacan begins the 20th year of his seminar by weighing up theories of the relationship between the desire for love and the attainment of knowledge from such diverse and influencial thinkers as Aristotle, Marx and Freud. He leads readers through mathematics, philosophy, religion and psychoanalysis, into an unexpected way of interpreting the two most fundamental human drives.
