Oversimplification leads away from Lacan
on 11 May 2014
Trying to simplify Lacan, whose ideas are indeed hard to understand, the content becomes an interpretation that is not Lacanian. We like it simple, but as long as it stays to the point. This book only reflects the writer's ideas. For a beginner, it will lead to misunderstanding of Lacanian psychoanalysis. Instead of this book, I would recommend "A Compendium of Lacanian Terms" (Free Association Books).
