As a historian, psychoanalyst, and a close member of Lacan's (1901-1981) inner circle, Roudinesco is well-positioned to tell his story. She follows Lacan's career from his early clinical practice to his many conflicts with the psychoanalytic establishment; his liaisons with an extraordinary gallery of figures, including Roman Jakobson and Martin Heidegger; and the evolution of his most well-known and radical ideas: the-Name-of-the-Father, the Mirror Stage, and the Lacanian self. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Elisabeth Roudinesco gives us a life Balzacian in its sweep: the story of a young man from the provinces determined to leave his family fortune and its old-fashioned values behind; the young doctor in Paris who set out to reinvent clinical psychotherapy and ended up transforming fundamental notions of the self, sexuality and the culture that shapes it all.
Roudinesco follows the development of Lacan's career from his early clinical practice and conflicts with the establishment, as he constantly pushed the boundaries of psychoanalysis from its roots in biology and neurology to a powerful critical tool that resonated in fields ranging from literary theory to feminist politics.About the Author:
Elisabeth Roudinesco teaches at the Ecole de Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales in Paris.
