A Philosophical Reading of Lacan

Countering the call by some “pro-Lacanians” for an end to the exegesis of Lacan’s work--and the dismissal by “anti-Lacanians” of Lacan as impossibly impenetrable--Subjectivity and Otherness argues for Lacan as a “paradoxically systematic” thinker, and for the necessity of a close analysis of his texts. Lorenzo Chiesa examines, from a philosophical perspective, the evolution of the concept of subjectivity in Lacan’s work, carrying out a detailed reading of the Lacanian subject in its necessary relation to otherness according to Lacan’s orders of the Imaginary, the Symbolic, and the Real.
