These essays, by some of the finest analysts and writers in the Lacanian psychoanalytic world in Paris today, carefully lay out the background and development of Lacans thought.

In Part I, Jacques-Alain Miller spells out the philosophical and psychiatric origins of Lacans work in great detail. In Parts II, III, and IV, Colette Soler, Eric Laurent, and others explain in the clearest of fashions the highly influential conceptualization Lacan introduces with the terms symbolic, imaginary, and real. Part V provides the first sustained account in English to date of Lacans reformulation of psychoanalytic diagnostic categories - neurosis, perversion, psychosis, and their subcategories - their theoretical foundations, and clinical applications (ample case material is provided here.).

Parts VI and VII of this collection take us well beyond Seminars I and II, relating Lacans early work to his later views of the 1960s and 1970s. Slavoj Zizek explores the complex philosophical relations between Hegel and Lacan regarding the subject and the cause. And Lacans article, On Freuds Trieb and the Psychoanalysts Desire - which appears here for the first time in English and is brilliantly unpacked by Jacques-Alain Miller in his Commentary on Lacans Text - takes a giant step forward to 1965 where we see a crucial reversal in Lacans perspective- desire is suddenly devalued, the defensive, inhibiting nature of desire coming to the fore.

What then becomes essential is the drive as an activity related to the lost object that produces jouissance.
