Overall, an outstanding introduction on the condition that it is very hard to really “introduce” Lacan. Lacan took Freud’s ideas to the next level but oddly his popularity is among students in the philosophy and linguistic departments and not in psychiatric studies.

Also included is an explanation of jouissance. Lacan come to the conclusion that desire is the driving force behind all human behavior.

I was really impressed by Bailly’s ability to do just what is often advertised but rarely delivered on for these sorts of “For Dummies” books: The Ego is posterior to the Subject. Jacques Lacan was one of the most important psychoanalysts ever to have lived. The Ego, then, is not the solution Freudbut the problem. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
