Editorial Reviews


This book is a kind of mosaic, composed of both beginning and concluding acts. It is an anthology of essays and lectures of recent years, which comprise an attempt to organize and pass on what can be learned from various psychoanalytical viewpoints from various cultural disciplines, particularly ones that reflect the discontent that is inherent within them.Through the study of the theories of Freud, Lacan and Slavoj Zizek, the author offers riveting glimpses into the works of Moshe Gershoni, Lucian Freud, Paul Celan, Primo Levi and others, who all bear witness to the existence of the Other, trauma, feminine jouissance and the Real, in twentieth-century culture.
