About this title:

Synopsis: This groundbreaking volume highlights the continuing relevance of Jacques Lacan (1901-1981), a French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst whose linguistic reworking of Freudian analysis radicalized both psychoanalysis and its approach to theology. The book's first section, Part I: Lacan, Religion, and Others, explores the application of Lacan's thought to the development and phenomena of religion. Part II: Theology and the Other Lacan moves through the physical world and into the metaphysical, probing theological issues and ideas of today's world with curiosity and in the light of Lacan. In both parts I and II, a central place is given to Lacan's exposition of the real, thereby reflecting the impact of his later work. Topics traverse culture, art, philosophy and politics, as well as providing critical exegesis of Lacan's most gnomic utterances on theology, including The Triumph of Religion. Contributors include some of the most renowned readers and influential academics in their respective fields: Tina Beattie, Lorenzo Chiesa, Clayton Crockett, Creston Davis, Adrian Johnston, Katerina Kolozova, Thomas Lynch, Marcus Pound, Carl Raschke, Kenneth Reinhard, Mario D'Amato, Noelle Vahanian and Slavoj Zizek.
