The seminar of Jacques Lacan by Jacques Lacan( Book )

64 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in English and French and held by 644 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." - Cover

My teaching by Jacques Lacan( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 290 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Bringing together three previously unpublished lectures presented to the public by Lacan at the height of his career, 'My Teaching' is a clear, concise introduction to the thought of the influential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
The four fundamental concepts of psycho-analysis by Jacques Lacan( Book )

45 editions published between 1977 and 2004 in English and French and held by 252 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

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

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

Formations of the unconscious by Jacques Lacan( Book )

"When I decided to explore the question of Witz, or wit, with you this year, I undertook a small enquiry. It will come as no surprise at all that I began by questioning a poet. This is a poet who introduces the dimension of an especially playful wit that runs through his work, as much in his prose as in more poetic forms, and which he brings into play even when he happens to be talking about mathematics, for he is also a mathematician. I am referring to Raymond Queneau. While we were exchanging our first remarks on the matter he told me a joke. It?s a joke about exams, about the university entrance exams, if you like. We have a candidate and we have an examiner. - 'Tell me', says the examiner, 'about the battle of Marengo.' The candidate pauses for a moment, with a dreamy air. 'The battle of Marengo ...' Bodies everywhere! It's terrible ... Wounded everywhere! It's horrible ... 'But', says the examiner, 'Can't you tell me anything more precise about this battle' 'The candidate thinks for a moment, then replies, 'A horse rears up on its hind legs and whinnies. 'The examiner, surprised, seeks to test him a little further and says, 'In that case, can you tell me about the battle of Fontenoy?' Oh!' says the candidate, 'a horse rears up on its hind legs and whinnies.' The examiner, strategically, asked the candidate to talk about the battle of Trafalgar. The candidate replies, 'Dead everywhere! A blood bath ... Wounded everywhere! Hundreds of them ...' 'But my good man, can't you tell me anything more precise about this battle?' 'A horse ...' 'Excuse me, I would have you note that the battle of Trafalgar is a naval battle.' 'Whoah! Whoah!' says the candidate. 'Back up, Neddy!' The value of this joke is, to my mind, that it enables us to decompose, I believe, what is at stake in a witticism. (Extract from Chapter VI)"--
