  4. Against Understanding, Volume 1

    Commentary and Critique in a Lacanian Key

    By Bruce Fink

    Against Understanding, Volume 1, explores how the process of understanding (which can be seen to be part and parcel of the Lacanian dimension of the imaginary) reduces the unfamiliar to the familiar, transforms the radically other into the same, and renders practitioners deaf to what is actually...

  5. The Surface Effect

    The Screen of Fantasy in Psychoanalysis

    By André Nusselder

    Even before we think, we use fantasy. Is fantasy the ‘mother of all media’? Does fantasy save me from myself? Are there fictions that are real?

  8. Perversion

    A Lacanian Psychoanalytic Approach to the Subject

    By Stephanie S. Swales

    Identification and Non-Identification in Lacanian Psychoanalysis

    By Raul Moncayo

  10. Lacanian Psychotherapy

    Theory and Practical Applications

    By Michael J. Miller
