2.0 out of 5 stars If this is an introduction..., 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Introducing Lacan: A Graphic Guide (Paperback)
Let me start this by saying that although I am not trained in psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, I did read Freud and Jung at University and I have read a number of current thinkers who have been influenced by Lacan, so for that reason I decided to try to understand him a bit more.

Perhaps I do understand him a bit more, but only a little bit. Although this is an 'illustrated' guide to Lacan, it would appear that the words were written first, and the illustrations just inserted afterwards. Many of them are just pictures of Freud and Lacan with words coming out of their mouths. A proper graphic writer could have helped here...

What can I say? I understood less than half of this book and I consider myself to be reasonably intelligent and reasonably well educated. If you already understand the language of psychoanalysis this might work for you, but you would probably want more than a picture book...
