Book Description

This book, focusing on the work of Jacques Lacan, examines psychosis in children, without ignoring the study of neurosis in childhood and concentrates on autism as produced by psychic disorders, by the symbolic failure that brings about the inclusion of the subject into the psychotic structure.
