Staff Reviews

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.

— From Ecrits (Jacques Lacan)


Brilliant and innovative, Jacques Lacan's work lies at the epicenter of modern thought about otherness, subjectivity, sexual difference, the drives, the law, and enjoyment. This new translation of his complete works offers welcome, readable access to Lacan's seminal thinking on diverse subjects touched upon over the course of his inimitable intellectual career.
