I thought more people should know about Lacan’s work on obsession and his interpretation of the Rat Man case history, so I put together the video below as a more digestible, condensed version of the article previously published on this site for those who prefer to watch rather than read.

It’s the first animated video for this site, and there are a few rough edges, but as ‘The Neurotic’s Individual Myth’ – Lacan’s paper on this subject – is rather tricky to find in English it is hopefully another way to introduce Lacan’s take on one of Freud’s most famous cases.

Comments welcome, and here’s the original article.
