The essays demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of Lacanian psychoanalysis. The relevance of his work to epistemology is considered by Jean-Claude Milner, Francois Regnault, and Ellie Ragland-Sullivan; to anthropology, by Jean-Joseph Goux; to feminist studies, by Jane Gallop; and to literature, by Dennis Porter and Denis Hollier.

Lacan Today: Psychoanalysis, Science, Religion offers a lucid overview of the French psychoanalyst's work. In five sections--"The Structure of the Subject," "Epistemology," "Four Discourses," "There is No Sexual Rapport," and "God is Real,"--the book maps out Lacan's thought for the lay reader with unmatched clarity. It does this by building from Lacan's graph and formulas, which are often misunderstood. This formalization acts as a pedagogical tool of wonderful economy, offering a broad overview without neglecting the essential details. The chapters are summarized by a general graph that visually demonstrates Lacan's rigor and coherence.The book examines often-neglected aspects of Lacan's work, like problems in the history of science, epistemology, and religion, in order to show Lacan's relevance to today's world. It makes the case for Lacan as one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century, whose reach extends beyond the discipline of psychoanalysis. Indeed, Lacan's thought should lead readers into a reexamination of philosophy, literature, art, politics, economy, and desire.In his introduction, Alexandre Leupin writes: "If the unconscious exists, then Lacan is the only twentieth-century thinker who has drawn the consequences of Freud's discovery to their ultimate limits. I propose here what some will take as bombastic hyperbole: Lacan's radical reevaluation of human thinking is comparable to Einstein's."Though Lacan's thought is making tremendous inroads in countries of Latin culture, it has been slowly fading from public awareness in the English-speaking world. Often Lacan has been nothing more than a pawn in the bundling of contradictory doctrines labeled as "French thought"; or he has been reduced to a means of exchange between psychoanalysts or specialists in the humanities. Leupin's contention is that what Lacan said or wrote is of interest to the general public and that his consignment to oblivion is reversible. This book demonstrates that Lacan's thinking has vast implications, not only for college professors or practicing psychoanalysts, but also for scientists, epistemologists, and every man and woman.

This purports to be an introductory text but it isn't. I don't believe that anyone who wasn't already familiar with Lacanian psychoanalysis would be able to follow it. The primary reason being that the author introduces too many complex Lacanian concepts and terms without bothering to explain them. The author in short is a very poor teacher. There are some interesting bits in it including the chapter on epistemology. But as an introduction it falls down completely. It has been my experience of Lacanian texts that the ones to avoid are those by non clinical authors. This author is a prime example.He teaches French literature and writes as if he thought Lacanian concepts are familiar to the general public and that they have an understanding of semiotic terms like signifier and signified, metaphor, metonymy and synechdote. Perhaps he believes people who don't have this knowledge are Philistines and not worth writing a book for. True the author does explain some of these concepts in later chapters but what way is that to teach or write an introductory book ?. I don't understand why the author, who teaches Lacan, would write the book in such an unnecessarily off putting manner. For an alternative and more accessible introduction to Lacan I recommend interested readers read Lionel Bailly's 'Lacan; a beginners guide'and then if they wish to go back to this more advanced text.

Alexandre Leupin's Lacan is an amazing book! I didn't know Lacan could be as interesting. Alexandre Leupin has accomplished a tour de force: making Lacan's ideas and thoughts clear and enjoyable. Thanks to Leupin, Lacan's fascinating notion of the relationship between language and desire are made accessible to (almost!) everyone.

The jacket of this book and a bit of the introduction seemed to promise accessibility to a lay person. This is a lie. I had to stop after reading the introduction and some of chapter one because I didn't know enough Lacanian jargon. I have read a book, "Introducing Lacan" before this. That didn't prepare me. I've also read 1000 pages of Freud and I'm a psychotherapist. Still not ready for this book. I almost tried one of the Zizek books instead and now I'm sure I should have.

Oh yeah, I think the book is also poorly written, but it's so arcane, I can't quite tell. E.g. "On the other side one finds scientists, professional epistemologists, linguists, and logicians who reduce the logical formalization of language to a self-reflexive consciousness that knows itself perfectly, thereby avoiding the recognition of unconscious phenomema and structures. It must be stressed that the vagaries of the subject are not part of the scientist's purview." ... I find this thick style particularly offensive. What does it mean for a formalization to be reduced to a consciousness? What does it mean for vagaries to not be part of a purview? Yikes.
