Read My Desire : Lacan Against the Historicists
Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide. Lacan Against the Historicists. Description In Read My Desire, Joan Copjec stages a confrontation between the theories of Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault, protagonists of two powerful modern discourses – psychoanalysis and historicism. Ordinarily, these discourses only cross paths long enough for historicists to charge psychoanalysis with an indifference to history, but here psychoanalysis, via Lacan, goes fead the offensive.
Refusing to cede historicity to the historicists, Copjec makes a case for the superiority of Lacan’s explanation of historical process, its generative desirw, and its complex functionings. Her goal is to inspire a new kind of cultural critique, one that would be “literate in desire,” that would be able to read what is inarticulable in cultural statements.

Review quote After “Read My Desire,” nothing in the domain of cultural studies will remain quite the same: For the first time, an American author has taken Lacan seriously, relegating to well-deserved irrelevance the prevailing appropriation of the Lacanian theory by cultural dewire.
Far beyond political correctness, the book is theoretically correct: If it didn t exist, one would have to invent it! Slavoj i[ek” show more. Book ratings by Desure.
