Bringing together three previously unpublished lectures presented to the public by Lacan at the height of his career, "My Teaching" is a clear, concise introduction to the thought of the influential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.
