About The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis (Seminar XI):

Jacques Lacan is widely recognized as a key figure in the history of psychoanalysis and one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century. His writings, and especially the seminars for which he has become famous, offer a controversial, radical reappraisal of the legacy bequeathed by Sigmund Freud. The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis is based on a year-long seminar in which Lacan addressed a larger, less specialized audience than ever before, among whom he could not assume prior familiarity with his work. In particular, he wanted to introduce some coherence into the four major concepts on which psychoanalysis is based: the unconscious, repetition, the transference, and the drive. Along the way, Lacan argues for a structural affinity between psychoanalysis and language, discusses the relation of psychoanalysis to religion, and reveals his particular stance on topics ranging from sexuality and death to alienation and repression. For all these reasons, and many more, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis will be of great interest to students and practitioners of psychoanalysis as well as students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences, from literature and critical theory to sociology, psychology, and communication studies.
