Jan 05, Chris rated it it was amazing Shelves: It is hard to describe this as an introductory text to the concepts of Freud and Lacan, or as its own exposition of new ideas, probably more of the former, but it serves both purposes equally well.
For the beginner like me, it was great to understand the philosophical underpinnings of Freud, gradually showing how Lacan elucidated certain controversial Freudian concepts and thus fully appreciating their impacts on subjectivity.
Like Lacan once said, “I’m a Freudian, I leave it up to you to be Lac It is hard to describe this as an introductory text to the concepts of Freud and Lacan, or as its own exposition of new ideas, probably more of the former, but it serves both purposes equally well. Like Lacan once said, “I’m a Freudian, I leave it up to you to be Lacanians,” this book’s primary focus is showing the full depth of Freud, with Lacan chiming in. To do this, Boothby sticks to his strong background in phenomenology where Freud and Lacan-oustide of the introduction-are hardly even mentioned until about pages in.
This is what makes the book interesting and unlike any other intro text on Lacan if that’s what you want to call itbecause the big Lacanian terminology imaginary, symbolic, real are not merely thrown around from the beginning assuming reader understanding.
Rather, by the time Boothby approaches the term ‘imaginary,’ you’ve had many pages before explaining all of it’s perceptual underpinnings, philosophic origins in Freud, as well as interwoven clinical examples. Definitely worth a read.
Sep 06, Mike rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent book. Boothby explains key Lacanian concepts with remarkable clarity and precision, and puts Lacan into the context of phenomenology and pjilosopher psychology, which turns out to be a highly effective way of shedding light on some of his ideas. A basic knowledge of Freud or a willingness to fill in the gaps by looking things up is recommended.
A patient reader will find parts of the book to contain one of the best philosophical introductions to Lacan.
Apr 13, Kelly Jones rated it really liked it. Love philosooher book since it was written by my Professor at Loyola.
He taught a course on philosophy and psychoanalysis and had an interesting take on the Freud Man.
This different take is evident in his book. Feb 11, Michael rated it really liked it. While I disagree with the reading of Freud that Boothby gives us, it is by far the best presentation of the Lacanian reading of Freud.
If taken not as an introduction to Freud as one would expect but as an introduction to Lacan, it is a truly great book.
