"The only thing of which one can be guilty is of having given
ground relative to one's desire." - Jacques Lacan. Is
psychoanalysis dead or are we to read frequent attacks on its
theoretical 'mistakes' and clinical 'frauds' as a proof of its
vitality? Slavoj i ek's passionate defence of Lacan reasserts the
ethical urgency of psychoanalysis. Traditionally, psychoanalysis
was expected to allow the patient to overcome the obstacles which
prevented access to 'normal' sexual enjoyment; today, however, we
are bombarded from all sides by different versions of the
injunction 'Enjoy!' Lacan reminds us that psychoanalysis is the
only discourse in which you are allowed not to enjoy. Since for
Lacan psychoanalysis itself is a procedure of reading, each chapter
uses a passage from Lacan as a tool to interpret another text from
philosophy, art or popular ideology. Lacan is read with Hegel and
Hitchcock, with Shakespeare and Dostoevsky.
