Linguistics and Psychoanalysis
It is not easy to resign oneself to the unfavorable impressions always left by a reading of Jacques Lacan’s writings.1 The publication of a first volume of his Seminar 2 thus offers an occasion to make a new study of Lacan’s thought, a study founded upon a spoken record, coherent in timeframe and in organization: his 1964 seminar. The opportunity is a particularly good one because the theme of the seminar—Is psychoanalysis a science?—allows us to suppose an objective meeting ground with regard to principles and methods.
