Emphasising the clinical basis of Lacan's work, An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis is an ideal companion to his ideas for readers in every discipline where his influence is felt. Jacques Lacan is arguably the most original and influential thinker since Freud.

Select Page: Where to? Select Category: Where to? Lacan Freud Blog News. There is no shortage of former Freudians who have abandoned the field and turned their talents to writing testimonies against Freudianism or psychoanalysis in general. Often these are semi-autobiographical accounts of their own shift in allegiance and recount in personal terms the reasons for their abandonment of the discipline.

In this post I look at three Lacanian writers who have since turned their back on Lacanian psychoanalysis. Of course, there are more than three, but these writers are of particular interest due to the quality of their work written whilst Lacanians, and for the reasons they have given subsequently for why they are no longer.

I have cited each of these authors numerous times in the articles written on this site, and this is testament to the high regard in which I hold them. Rather, in each case I point the reader in the direction of their current work and link where possible to their own explanations as to why they abandoned the Lacanian orientation. Fortunately, they have not been silent in publishing their respective reasons for this abandonment on the web, so in each case I include links to their respective sites where possible, and encourage anyone interested in finding out more to start from there.

First, Dylan Evans. This name will probably be the most familiar to Lacanian readers thanks to his excellent An Introductory Dictionary of Lacanian Psychoanalysis.

Evans abandoned psychoanalysis for the field of evolutionary psychology in the late s. Just as he wrote the inaugural English-language introductory dictionary to Lacanian psychoanalysis, so he has since written an introductory text to evolutionary psychology.

Second, Stuart Schneiderman. Schneiderman was one of the first Americans to travel to France to study under Lacan and to undertake an analysis with him. Schneiderman now practices as a life coach in New York City. He maintains a regularly updated blog on which he posts much that is critical of the psychotherapies. He can also be found on Twitter. His own account of why he abandoned psychoanalysis is on his site here. Third is Mikkel Borch-Jacobsen. Also worthy of mention is The Freudian Subject from The book for which he is now best known, however, is Le Livre Noir de la Psychanalyse , a title currently only available in French but which translates into English as The Black Book of Psychoanalysis.

To a greater extent than the other two authors, Borch-Jacobsen has continued to produce work engaging with psychoanalysis, particularly on the history of psychoanalysis and of psychiatry in general. These are brilliant and insightful. By Owen Hewitson , LacanOnline. All content on LacanOnline.

He is all about Lacan too. Thanks for the heads up, Roger — Allouch is a great writer. Not all of the anecdotes are diamonds but there are a few absolute gems. A very interesting read! Thank you for this. That would be an interesting point of comparison. I wonder if anyone has written on Darwin and Freud on this account? Thanks for this post and your terrific site. As you say, what these three critics of Lacan have in common is that they are all quite good writers and are hard to simply dismiss out of hand.

He reminds me a bit of what playwright David Mamet has morphed into. Evans, whose arguments should be given serious consideration, apparently might have been better off sticking with his own personal analysis and saving himself a lot of grief and madness.

A first hand account a few years ago in the Daily Mail published by one of the participants of this strange, comic and disastrously uninformed endeavor sort of makes Lacan look the picture of sanity.

At least Lacan ended his days carrying string, silently tying and untying knots. Sounds pretty harmless to me. Thank you for the informative post.
