Description


Literary Nonfiction. Translated by Jacques Houis. Jean-Pierre Cl ro has provided the first detailed account of the influence of English-language psychoanalysts, philosophers, and mathematicians upon Lacan. He reveals the extent of Lacan's interest in the Anglo-Saxon tradition and how Lacan's erudition generated a re-evaluation of some thinkers--Boole and Bentham, for example--within that tradition. In this investigation, Cl ro also identifies a missed encounter between Lacan and the British psychoanalytic community that led Lacan to question the efficacy of the English language to translate the unconscious. This book is sure to be a significant contribution to the study of Lacan in English and a highly original contribution to the study of major influences on Lacan's thought.
