Second only to Freud in his importance to psychoanalysis, Jacques Lacan's ECRITS collects all of his most important speeches and writings. Influencing everything from French philosophy, feminist theory and film studies, Lacan's thought is indispensable to a well-rounded understanding of the modern world and human psyche. Highlights include his famous seminar on Poe's "The Purloined Letter," the concept of the "Mirror Stage" of psychological development, and the groundbreaking three orders--the Imaginary, the Symbolic and the Real.
