Jacques Lacan is the foremost psychoanalytic theorist after Freud.Revolutionising the study of social relations, his work has been a majorinfluence on political theory, philosophy, literature and the arts, but histhought has so far been studied without a serious investigation of itsfoundations. Just what are the influences on his thinking, so crucial to itsproper understanding?

In Lacan: The Silent Partners Slavoj Zizek, the maverick theorist andpre-eminent Lacan scholar, has marshalled some of the greatest thinkers of ourage in support of a dazzling re-evaluation of Lacan's work. Focussing onLacan's 'silent partners', those who are the hidden inspiration to Lacaniantheory, they discuss his work in relation to the Pre-Socratics, Diderot, Hegel,Nietzsche, Schelling, Hölderlin, Wagner, Turgenev, Kafka, Henry James andArtaud.

This major collection, including three essays by Zizek, marks a new era inthe study of this unsettling thinker, breathing new life into his classic work.

Contributors: Alain Badiou, Bruno Bosteels, Miran Bozovic, Lorenzo Chiesa,Joan Copjec, Mladen Dolar, Timothy Huson, Fredric Jasmeson, Adrian Johnston,Sigi Jöttkandt, Silvia Ons, Robert Pfaller, Alenka Zupancic and Slavoj Zizek.
