Lacan developed his theory and practice of psychoanalysis on the
basis of Freud's original work. In his "return to Freud" he did not
only elaborate and revise some of Freud's innovative ideas, but
turned to important questions and problems in Freud's theory that
had remained obscure and unresolved, and provided a new way of
articulating these issues and their implication for psychoanalytic
theory and practice.This book offers a selection of introductory
lectures given at the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research
(CFAR) about some of the fundamental concepts of psychoanalysis
which aim at exploring the trajectory of their development from
their original basis in Freud's work to their elaboration by
Lacan.The book will be of interest to readers from different
backgrounds, including the clinical and academic field, social and
cultural studies and the arts, for whom psychoanalytic ideas may be
a relatively new field to explore, or who are looking for new
perspectives to develop their ideas about psychoanalysis.
