The four fundamental concepts of psycho-analysis by Jacques Lacan( Book )

226 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is based on a year's seminar in which Dr. Lacan addressed a larger, less specialized audience than ever before, among whom he could not assume familiarity with his work. For his listeners then, and for his readers now, he wanted to "introduce a certain coherence into the major concepts on which psycho-analysis is based," namely, the unconscious, repetition, the transference, and the drive. Along the way he argues for a structural affinity between psychoanalysis and language, discusses the relation of psychoanalysis to religion, and reveals his particular stance on topics ranging from sexuality and death to alienation and repression. This book constitutes the essence of Dr. Lacan's sensibility
The seminar of Jacques Lacan by Jacques Lacan( Book )

58 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his famous seminar on ethics, Jacques Lacan uses this question as his departure point for a re-examination of Freud's work and the experience of psychoanalysis in relation to ethics. Delving into the psychoanalyst's inevitable involvement with ethical questions, Lacan clarifies many of his key concepts. During the seminar he discusses the problem of sublimation, the paradox of jouissance, the essence of tragedy, and the tragic dimension of analytical experience. One of the most influential French intellectuals of this century, Lacan is seen here at the height of his powers
My teaching by Jacques Lacan( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together three previously unpublished lectures presented to the public by Lacan at the height of his career, 'My Teaching' is a clear, concise introduction to the thought of the influential psychoanalyst. Drawing on examples from popular culture and common sense, this lively book explores a range of Lacan's most important ideas, including his debt to Freud, linguistic unconsciousness and sexuality in its relation to psychoanalytic truth. Engaging, witty and personal, 'My Teaching' offers a rare opportunity to engage directly with Lacan's own general explanation of his teaching to a non-psychoanalytic audience

Le triomphe de la religion : précédé de Discours aux catholiques by Jacques Lacan( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in French and German and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In zwei kleinen Bänden wurden 2005 vier Texte Lacans erstmals veröffentlicht, die man als" Schlüsseltexte und vorzügliche Zugänge zum Werk"bezeichnen kann, so dass, wie Hans-Dieter Gondek anlässlich der französischen Ausgabe schrieb, diese" allen an Lacan Interessierten ohne jede Einschränkung ans Herz gelegt werden können". Dieser zweite der beiden Bände enthält zwei Beiträge: Er enthält einen Vortrag (1960), der die Kernthesen des damals abgehaltenen Seminars über" Die Ethik der Psychoanalyse"zusammenfasst, und eine Pressekonferenz (1974), in der Lacan den Triumph der Religion auf Kosten der Psychoanalyse prognostiziert: die Religion verhindert, dass wir merken, was alles in der Welt nicht geht, während nur die Psychoanalyse sich genau mit dem Skandal befasst, was alles nicht geht

On the names-of-the-Father by Jacques Lacan( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What astonishing success the Name-of-the-Father has had! Everyone finds something in it. Who one's father is isn't immediately obvious, hardly being visible to the naked eye. Paternity is first and foremost determined by one's culture. As Lacan said, "The Name-of-the-Father creates the function of the father." But then where does the plural stem from? It isn't pagan, for it is found in the Bible. He who speaks from the burning bush says of Himself that He doesn't have just one Name. In other words, the Father has no proper Name. It is not a figure of speech, but rather a function. The Father has as many names as the function has props. What is its function? The religious function par excellence, that of tying things together. What things? The signifier and the signified, law and desire, thought and the body. In short, the symbolic and the imaginary. Yet if these two become tied to the real in a three-part knot, the Name-of-the-Father is no longer anything but mere semblance. On the other hand, if without it everything falls apart, it is the symptom of a failed knotting. -- Jacket
