5.0 out of 5 stars Lacan analyzed..., 22 Sep 2013
By 
Ioannis Kazlaris (Greece) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Lacan to the Letter: Reading Ecrits Closely (Paperback)
This is Bruce Fink's commentary on Lacan's Ecrits (which is also translated by him). Several different concepts are explained such as the "mechanics" of the graph of desire, Lacan's algebraic formulations, the sliding of the signifier, etc. Re-reading Ecrits afterwards is a different experience, as Lacan is sometimes notorious as regards the difficulty of his concepts and the formulation of his ideas, perhaps out of his own desire to make his audience coax more knowledge out of themselves.

There are 2-3 grammatical mistakes in the book and there is also a mistake in the number of pages in the Amazon description; the number of pages is 192.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very clearly written and accessible., 29 Sep 2014
This review is from: Lacan to the Letter: Reading Ecrits Closely (Paperback)
I was surprised at how accessible and clear Fink was in writing this book. Lacan's 'Ecrits' is a very difficult book but Fink makes it all quite intelligible using ordinary understandable sentences. Unlike other Lacanian authors he doesn't try to copy his master and show how smart he is by mystifying everyone with the complexity of his writing. He's letting the masses in to feed at the same table as the elite. Good for him.
