Écrits is Lacan's most important work, bringing together twenty-seven articles and lectures originally published between 1936 and 1966. This is the essential source for anyone who seeks to understand this seminal thinker and his influence on contemporary thought and culture.

Reviews

'Lacan's work marks a crucial moment in the history of psychoanalysis, a moment which will perhaps prove as significant as Freud's original discovery of the unconscious.' - Colin MacCabe

'Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Georges Bataille had often urged Lacan to publish the text of his seminars: the influence of his teaching can be observed in works by Maurice Blanchot and Michel Foucault … in Roland Barthes's studies on semiology and Louis Althusser's "reading" of Marx. But it can be felt still more basically [in] the current revival of interest in psychoanalysis . . . the desire for a return to origins which is a common factor in so many avenues of modern thought.' - The Times Literary Supplement
