Jacques Lacan

Jacques Lacan (13-Apr-1901 to 9-Sept-1984) was a French psychoanalyst and psychiatrist who has been called “the most controversial psycho-analyst since Freud”. Lacan’s work has marked the French and international intellectual landscape, having made a significant impact on continental philosophy and cultural theory in areas such as post-structuralism, critical theory, feminist theory and film theory as well as on psychoanalysis itself.

Lacan took up and discussed the whole range of Freudian concepts emphasising the philosophical dimension of Freud’s thought and applying concepts derived from structuralism in linguistics and anthropology to its development in his own work which he would further augment by employing formulae from mathematical logic and topology.
