  10. Perversion

    Perversion is one of Lacan's three main diagnostic ontological structures. This book provides a close reading of what Lacan said about perversion and its substructures. Lacanian theory is carefully explained in accessible language, and perversion is elucidated in terms of its etiology, characteristics, symptoms, and fundamental fantasy. It offers clinicians a guide to making differential diagnoses between neurotic and perverse patients, and provides a treatment model for working with perversion versus neurosis.
