Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

With considerable knowledge and ingenuity, Lukacher adapts Freud's notion of the primal scene to describe both "the interpretive impasse that arises when a reader has good reason to believe that the meaning of one text is historically dependent on the meaning of another or on a previously unnoticed set of criteria, even though there is no conclusive . . . means of establishing the case . . ." and the interpretive constructions he develops to overcome that impasse. In addition to Freud, Lukacher bases these constuctions on Heidegger, Derrida, and Lacanhis discussions full of the dense jargon fashionable today when dealing with those authors. His interpretations bring together authors such as Hegel, Marx, and Shakespeare in provocative ways but, despite the heavy philosophical and psychoanalytical artillery, not in particularly convincing or central ones. Richard Kuczkowski, Director, Continuing Education, Dominican Coll., Blauvelt, N.Y.
