It does not do a good job of summarizing or psychoanalydis Lacanian concepts–Mr. Evans wrote this book as an inexperienced student, and his general lack of understanding of Lacanian theory is obvious on dylzn pages.
The whole idea of an introductory dictionary is a pretty foolish endeavour in the first place. I would point anyone instead towards the brilliantly pellucid Lacanian introductions by Bruce Fink.

Jan 16, Megan rated it really liked it Shelves: Incredibly useful for anyone regularly reading literature that constantly refers to Lacan, but rylan who doesn’t want to read all of Lacan’s work to understand it. Time is just too precious for that. Feb 09, Gina rated it it was amazing. This is a really thorough explanation of concepts and terms found throughout Lacan’s seminars. I recommend it to anyone who loves Lacan but struggles with him as much as I do. May 24, Peter D.
Mathews rated it it was ok Shelves: Looking through the book itself – I’m not going to read a damned dictionary from cover to cover – shows that Evans has done his homework. There are useful explanations dictionayr the various key Lacanian terms, with genealogies that show how they have changed over time. Nonetheless, I can’t help but wonder what the point of a work like this might be. I suppose if I were really stuck on a technical point, I might look up this dictionary, but that would hardly be a common occurrence.
I’d be better off consulting Lacan’s work, or reading an explanation in one of the gazillion other “introduction to Lacan” books that already exists. On the whole, then, this is not a bad book, just one that seems rather unnecessary. Feb 01, Matthew rated it really liked it.
I think Evans does a pretty decent job summerizing most of Lacan’s theories, buzz words and vocabulary. For example, just recently I needed it while trying to follow Helene Cixous’ argument in “The Laugh of the Medusa” — she rakes Lacan and for that matter Freud over the coals for the “phallocentricity” of their formulation of sexual difference — i.
As Cixous was tossing around buzz words, I was busy paging through Evans’ book to get back in touch with the basic Lacan — it really helped me dive back into the theory I had been away from for a while.
