The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psycho-Analysis Summary


The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psycho-Analysis by Jacques Lacan

The writings of Jacques Lacan have received the very highest praise - and also been dismissed as impenetrably obscure. What is not in doubt is his unique determination to re-assess the whole Freudian legacy and to ask the most searching questions. If psychoanalysis is a science, he suggests, it may be surprisingly similar to linguistics; we need to clarify the meanings of "the four fundamental concepts", drive, repetition, the unconscious and transference. In doing so, this book also makes clear his position on topics as diverse as religion and alienation, sexuality and death.

Table of Contents


Excommunication. The unconscious and repetition: the Freudian unconscious and ours; of the subject of uncertainty; of the network of signifiers; touche and automaton. Of the gaze as "objet petit a": the split between the eye and the gaze; anamorphosis; the line and light; what is a picture? The transference and the drive: presence of the analyst; analysis and truth or the closure of the unconscious; sexuality in the defiles of the signifier; the deconstruction of the drive; the partial drive and its circuit; from love to the libido. The field of the other and back to the transference: the subject and the other - alienation; the subject and the other - aphanisis; of the subject who is supposed to know, of the first dyad and of the good; from interpretation to the transference. To conclude: in you more than you.
