This unit introduces students to the challenging theoretical work of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, which has been influential across a range of disciplines. The unit looks first at the theoretical antecedents of Lacan’s return to the meaning of Freud, and then at Lacan’s vital Seminar III, The Psychoses. Students will develop working understandings of some of Lacan’s key terms, including the imaginary, the symbolic, the master signifier, the Other and the real.
