Back cover copy

'The Seminar: Books I and II have a special place because of their value as an introduction to Lacan...[They] are a sure path of entry into Lacan's critique of ego psychology....Lacan's work underscores that part of Freud's message that is most revolutionary for our time. The individual is 'decentred'. There is no autonomous self. What sex was to the Victorians, the question of free will is to our new Fin-de-Siecle.' --Sherry Turkle, 'London Review of Books'

Review quote

"The Seminar: Books I and II have a special place because of their value as an introduction to Lacan... [They] are a sure path of entry into Lacan's critique of ego psychology... Lacan's work underscores that part of Freud's message that is most revlutionary for our time. The individual is 'decentered'. There is no autonomous self. What sex was to the Victorians, the question of free will is to our new Fin-de-Siecle." -- Sherry Turkle "A rare opportunity to experience Lacan as a teacher... The publication of these two early seminars ... may allow Lacan's work to do what it does most remarkably: she light on, and expend, the theoretical implications of psychoanalysis, but also to train a new generation of psychoanalysts by asking again: what exactly do we do when we do psychoanalysis?" -- Lisa Kennedy
