LacanOnline.com is a site for exploring psychoanalysis through the work of Jacques Lacan. It is an independent, non-partisan site with no affiliation to any Lacanian school, group or organisation. All content on this site is written by its author and is original to LacanOnline.com.
The name of this site – LacanOnline.com – describes an aim broader than its content: to encourage the dissemination of Lacan’s work online and to aid anyone interested in pursuing its study. With the vast majority of Lacan’s work now available online, for free, and in English the web offers the promise of digitalising not just the distribution but the production of work in the Lacanian field.
Lacan once said, “He who interrogates me knows how to read me.” The content of this site is written in that spirit of critique. Whilst I quote heavily from Lacan’s Seminar and Écrits in an attempt to explicate his thought, nothing here should oblige the visitor to agree with Lacan’s views, those of his followers, or my own.
I am indebted to a number of co-workers in London, particularly from the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research and the London Society of the New Lacanian School, who have taken up the task of studying Lacan’s texts with me. Some of my reading of Lacan that can be found on this site is influenced by this work.
The site is a work in progress, but please feel free to leave your comments or get in touch with me directly via firstname.lastname@example.org or using the form below.
