About this title

Synopsis:

In this major work, leading theorist Samuel Weber provides a much-needed introduction to the thought of Jacques Lacan. Professor Weber approaches his subject from a dual perspective: he reads Lacan in the light of Freud (whose work Lacan is concerned to interpret), and from the perspective of structuralism, above all Saussure, from whom Lacan borrows and develops a distinctive conception of language as 'signifier'. Lacan is shown to contribute crucially to the rethinking of subjectivity that marks much of contemporary literary theory, and his 'return to Freud' - the complex relationship between his work and its Freudian antecedents - is explored extensively. The result, made available here for the first time in English (in a form thoroughly revised, updated, and augmented by the author) is a constantly illuminating work of intellectual enquiry, with important implications for our age.

Book Description:

In this major work, leading theorist Samuel Weber provides a much-needed introduction to the thought of Jacques Lacan. Lacan's complex relationship to his Freudian antecedents is explored extensively in the context of Saussure, Jakobsen, and structural linguistics generally. The result is a constantly illuminating work of intellectual enquiry, with important implications for modern literary theory.
