Bringing together three previously unpublished lectures presented to the public by Lacan at the height of his career, My Teaching is a clear, concise introduction to the thought of the influential psychoanalyst. Drawing on examples from popular culture and common sense, this lively book explores a range of Lacan’s most important ideas, including his debt to Freud, linguistic unconsciousness and sexuality in its relation to psychoanalytic truth. Engaging, witty and personal, My Teaching offers a rare opportunity to engage directly with Lacan's own general explanation of his teaching to a non-psychoanalytic audience.
The psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (1901–1981) was one of the twentieth century’s most influential thinkers. His many published works include Ecrits and The Seminars.
