Summary Read First Chapter image missing

An accessible introduction to the psychoanalytic theories of Jacques Lacan, intended especially for American psychologists but useful to anyone interested in the work of this important thinker.

Written with the American psychological community in mind, The Subject of Lacan provides an accessible introduction to the psychoanalytic theories of Jacques Lacan. The contributors address issues and theories that define the field of psychology for its practitioners, researchers, and theorists. Focusing on a wide range of topics, including cognitive science, family therapy, psychoanalytic technique, psychotherapy versus psychopharmacology, gender and sexuality, psychology of religion, psycholinguistics, and cultural diversity, this book makes an important contribution to the understanding of the radically innovative character and complexity of Lacanian theory.

"I don't know of anything on Lacan comparable to this book in terms of being both engaging and accurate. It would seem that these authors have, in a sense, been in training for a number of years to make the effort to get Lacan across to the rest of us. This is a rich and superb contribution in an area where almost nothing is available." -- Frank C. Richardson, coauthor of Re-envisioning Psychology: Moral Dimensions of Theory and Practice

"What is most striking about this book is the instruction it offers on the core features of Lacan's theories: the chapters invite readers into Lacanian analyses, present intriguing features of his work, and do so without didactic prose or condescending description. It is refreshingly iterative in the sense that chapters revisit and re-present in different form some core features of the model. A gentle yet sophisticated primer on Lacan." -- Jill Morawski, author of Practicing Feminisms, Reconstructing Psychology: Notes on a Liminal Science
