An interview with Juan-David Nasio.

In A Psychoanalyst on the Couch, we find the noted psychoanalyst and Lacan commentator Juan-David Nasio on the analyst’s couch himself. In the interview that makes up this book, he provides insight into his forty-year career as a writer and practitioner, elaborating on Freudian and Lacanian concepts important to his work and reflecting on broad issues related to psychology and culture—as well as personal remembrances. The result is an intimate and wide-ranging look at the man and thinker, both an introduction to his work and a deeper look at his approach and outlook.

Juan-David Nasio is a psychoanalyst who lives and works in Paris. He was the first psychoanalyst to be inducted into the prestigious French Legion of Honor.

Stephanie Grace Schull is Director of Instructional Innovation and Assessment at Hawai’i Pacific University. François Raffoul is Professor of Philosophy at Louisiana State University. David Pettigrew is Professor of Philosophy at Southern Connecticut State University. Together Raffoul and Pettigrew have translated Nasio’s Five Lessons on the Psychoanalytic Theory of Jacques Lacan; The Book of Love and Pain: Thinking at the Limit with Freud and Lacan; and Oedipus: The Most Crucial Concept in Psychoanalysis, all published by SUNY Press.
