Jacques Lacan (1901-81) was one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers. His works include Ecrits, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis and the many other volumes of The Seminar.
'This Seminar predicted "the revamping of formally established conformisms and even their explosion." We have reached that point. Lacan is talking about us.' Jacques-Alain Miller
