David Pereira

"It may be said that Lacanian psychoanalysis emerges in the marking of a difference. The marking of a difference through which Lacan differentiates his working of the radicalism of the Freudian discovery from that of post-Freudianism, with its taste for populist appeal. That marking of a difference through which Lacan declares, in a given moment, that the unconscious is of Lacan, though the field be Freudian." Read full Logos
