About this product
- DescriptionLacan and Levi-Strauss are often mentioned together in reviews of French structuralist thought, but what really links their distinct projects? In this important study, Markos Zafiropoulos shows how Lacan's famous 'return to Freud' was only made possible through Lacan's reading of Levi-Strauss. Via a careful and illuminating comparison of the work of the psychoanalyst and that of the anthropologist, Zafiropoulos shows how Lacan's theories of the symbolic function, of the power of language, of the role of the father and even of the unconscious itself owe a major debt to Levi-Strauss.Lacan and Levi-Strauss is much more than an academic study of the relations between these two thinkers: it is also a superb introduction to the work of Lacan, setting out with detail and lucidity the major concepts of his work in the 1950s.
- Author BiographyMarkos Zafiropoulos is a psychoanalyst and a sociologist. He is Director of Studies at the CNRS Centre for Research in Psychoanalysis and Social Practises in Paris and author of several acclaimed books, including 'Tristesse dans la Modernite' and 'Lacan et les Sciences Sociales: le Declin du Pere'.
