'The essays are exemplary in their stylistic clarity. One can only compliment MacCabe along with the contributors, for the readability and conceptual variability of this collection.' E.Ragland-Sullivan, Lacan Study Notes This book, which grew out of a series of seminars at King's College, Cambridge, addresses itself to the problem of understanding the relations between psychoanalysis and language not only in terms of contemporary linguistic and philosophical conceptions of language but also in relation to the wider field of the human sciences.
