- Lacan, Jacques 1901-1981. French psychiatrist who was an early adherent and interpreter of Freud's theories in France, but whose own theoretical and clinical work diverged greatly from Freud's. His collection of essays and lectures Écrits (1966) greatly influenced linguistics and literary theory.
“I am sure that Jacques Lacan is one of the most important thinkers of the XX century.”
“September 13, 2009 at 1: 57 pm lol ah actually, Lacan is a man aint he?”
“In order to accept Homans's reading, one would have to say that Victor's Oedipal desire ( "the predicament of Frankenstein, as of the hero of Alastor, is that of the son in Lacan's revision of the Oedipal crisis" [Homans 148]) functions as a kind of generalized social background in the rest of the novel.”
“James A.W. Heffernan is very much on the mark when he suggests that cinematic representations of the creature necessarily dramatize the tension between the impersonal, male-dominated "gaze" theorized in Lacan's”
“The problem of human beingness, declared Sartre and Lacan, is the problem of what to do with one's slime (one's shit): "The slimy is myself" (Sartre 609).”
“I can take a little psychoanalytic abstraction, I can take a little experimental, punning discourse, I can take some brain-wrenching ideas, but put them all together in Lacan and suddenly I realise I simply can’t work that hard.”
“I’d say get a grounding in Lacan first – although he will probably piss you off – and the best thing for that is to read Zizek’s Reading Lacan.”
“There’s an interesting concept in Lacan’s psychoanalythic theory stating that, since the psyche is organized in terms of language, in order for something to exist, that something must have a name (actually that’s not exactly what Lacan says, it’s just one of the thousands of conclusions one may reach after trying to read his stuff – trust me, I know).”
“The serious attention she solicits for what she cleverly calls Lacan's "psychoanalytic protestantism" is surely, as I said in my reply to Schneiderman, incompatible with any view derivative from psychoanalysis that emphasizes either unconscious emotions or the forces of resistance.”
“Anyone who musters the will to read the Science of Logic with open eyes, free of the invectives that have been levelled against Hegel by figures such as Lacan, Deleuze, and Derrida, will be deeply rewarded with the conceptual clarity he brings to the table and the various conflicts that he unfolds and which repeat again and again in a variety of different structures of thought.”
