Praise for Jacques Lacan: An Outline of a Life and History of a System of Thought
"[An] extraordinary book about the most flamboyant French neo-Freudian of the twentieth century."--The Times "Elisabeth Roudinesco takes us on a fascinating journey ... fascinating like Lacan himself."--Michael Kajman, Le Monde "She acknowledges Lacan's personal absurdity and literary extravagance while simultaneously showing why and how he matters. Ms. Roudinesco captures the freshness of the intellectual world in which Lacan's developing notions were concocted."--New York Times Praise for Our Dark Side "Required reading for all studies of the history of consciousness."--Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Columbia University
