In his comparison of Freud and Lacan, Andre illuminates the forward evolution of Freud's thinking on feminine sexuality and the ways in which Lacan traces his own path backward from the later Freud to the earlier theories, finding there the basis for his notion of the difference between phallic jouissance and the "feminine" jouissance of the Other as guaranteeing the impossibility of the sexual relation.
