The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis (Penguin Psychology)

The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis (Penguin Psychology)

by JacquesLacan (Author), JacquesAlainMiller (Editor), David Macey (Editor), A . Sheridan (Editor)


The writings of Jacques Lacan have received the very highest praise - and also been dismissed as impenetrably obscure. What is not in doubt is his unique determination to re-assess the whole Freudian legacy and to ask the most searching questions. If psychoanalysis is a science, he suggests, it may be surprisingly similar to linguistics; we need to clarify the meanings of the four fundamental concepts , drive, repetition, the unconscious and transference. In doing so, this book also makes clear his position on topics as diverse as religion and alienation, sexuality and death.
