Jean-Pierre Cléro has provided the first detailed account of the influence of English-language psychoanalysts, philosophers, and mathematicians upon Lacan. He reveals the extent of Lacan’s interest in the Anglo-Saxon tradition and how Lacan’s erudition generated a re-evaluation of some thinkers—Boole and Bentham, for example—within that tradition. In this investigation, Cléro also identifies a “missed” encounter between Lacan and the British psychoanalytic community that led Lacan to question the efficacy of the English language to translate the unconscious.
This book is sure to be a significant contribution to the study of Lacan in English and a highly original contribution to the study of major influences on Lacan’s thought.
