    1. It is hard to describe this as an introductory text to the concepts of Freud and Lacan, or as its own exposition of new ideas, probably of the former, but it serves both purposes equally well For the beginner like me, it was great to understand the philosophical underpinnings of Freud, gradually showing how Lacan elucidated certain controversial Freudian concepts and thus fully appreciating their impacts on subjectivity Like Lacan once said, I m a Freudian, I leave it up to you to be Lacanians, [...]

    2. This is an excellent book Boothby explains key Lacanian concepts with remarkable clarity and precision, and puts Lacan into the context of phenomenology and gestalt psychology, which turns out to be a highly effective way of shedding light on some of his ideas.A basic knowledge of Freud or a willingness to fill in the gaps by looking things up is recommended A patient reader will find parts of the book to contain one of the best philosophical introductions to Lacan.

    3. Love this book since it was written by my Professor at Loyola He taught a course on philosophy and psychoanalysis and had an interesting take on the Freud Man This different take is evident in his book.

    4. While I disagree with the reading of Freud that Boothby gives us, it is by far the best presentation of the Lacanian reading of Freud If taken not as an introduction to Freud as one would expect but as an introduction to Lacan, it is a truly great book.
