    1st Edition

    Edited by Stijn Vanheule, Derek Hook, Calum Neill

  • Obsessional Neurosis

    Lacanian Perspectives, 1st Edition

    Edited by Astrid Gessert

    Despite the important place it occupies in both Freudian and Lacanian nosology, obsessional neurosis has received far less attention than its erstwhile companion hysteria.

  • Six Moments in Lacan

    Communication and identification in psychology and psychoanalysis, 1st Edition

  • Lacanian Psychoanalysis with Babies, Children, and Adolescents

    Further Notes on the Child, 1st Edition

    Edited by Carol Owens, Stephanie Farrelly Quinn

  • Lacanian Affects

    The function of affect in Lacan's work, 1st Edition

    By Colette Soler

    Affect is a high-stakes topic in psychoanalysis, but there has long been a misperception that Lacan neglected affect in his writings.
