Stanley Hall – translation Narrated by: This was actually the second time I Having been a militant atheist, I instantly recognized and proudly identified with figures like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens.

The purpose of this general introduction was to present his work and ideas – as they had matured at that point – to a general public; and even though there was to be considerable development and change over the ensuing years, these talks still offer a valuable and remarkably approachable entry point to his revolutionary concepts. It offers valuable historical contex Reading this in conjunction with Zizek’s introduction to Lacan inclines me towards thinking this is the better educational resource – it lacks Zizek’s bombast, but is certainly more persuasive and educational to the average reader unfamiliar with Lacan or Zizek themselves.

A very helpful book. Lacan is Hard to read as his concepts are confusing and not being explained basically by many of the writers of whom. To take an esoteric jumble of confused, self-contradictory obscurantism and craft of it something not only legible but intelligible, and then to convincingly defend its merits against numerous multipolar accusations, is at once a sign that considerable reflection has taken place and a resolute conviction in the intellectual substance of the source material.


Bailly explains things in such a way that they make perfect sense, but such neatness is not only impossible reading the primary source material, but Lacan himself would find it abhorrent to what he was trying to say all along. Frustrated, I quit, knowing that whatever he was, he was utterly and totally beyond my comprehension. Pacan next time, I wish you great books and stimulating reading!
