Jacques LACAN : « Ecrits. A Selection. The first general selection in English from the work of Europe’s major Freudian psychoanalyst »

Tavistock Publications Limited, 1977.

Jacques Lacan was one of the most influential French thinkers of the twentieth century, part of an extraordinary constellation of minds that included Levi-Strauss, Althusser, Barthes, and Foucault. For twenty years his weekly seminar, attended by a whole generation of French intellectuels, was a principal source of his influence and reputation.
This selection of his writings – Lacan’s own – ranges chronologically from « The Mirror Stage » to « The Subversion of the Subject ond the Dialectics of Desire in the Freudien Unconscious » – oneof Lacan’s most radical, far-reaching texts – and includes « The Function ond Field of Speech and Language in Psychoanalysis » and six other papers dealing with various aspects of psychoanalytic theory and practice.
