4.0 out of 5 stars A dense and sophisticated retrospective, 3 Mar 2014
Roman Clodia (London) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Lacan: In Spite of Everything (Paperback)
This isn’t a book for anyone unfamiliar with the thought of Lacan, or the way in which he has been received. Roudinesco takes it for granted that her readers are familiar with not just Lacan but the philosophers and thinkers upon whom he builds and those who were influenced by him: Freud, of course, but also people like Lévi-Strauss, Marx, Sartre, Derrida and Foucault.

This is part life and part analysis of how Lacanian thought situates itself within and against twentieth-century modernity: as such, it is not so much a book interested in Lacanian psychoanalytical thought as one which engages with Lacan’s impact on cultural studies in the broadest sense.

This is a stimulating read, dense and, in places, intellectually difficult: definitely not Lacan for beginners. .
