Recent Comments "Lacan and the Political"

Lacan and the Political is really just ok. Stavrakakis does a better job than Zizek in explicating some of Lacan's theoretical ideas and their application to society and politics, but with the caveat that he presupposes his readers already have a very basic understanding of Lacan's theory. Do not expect this book to be and introduction to Lacan, because it isn't, and if you go into it with little to no understanding of Lacan it will be impossible to glean anything from it. I did not enjoy Stavra [...]

neat. a clear and, dare I say, pragmatic (characteristics i haven't been known to find especially seductive) exploration of this notoriously abstruse thinker. That this can be done without vulgarizing the theory too bad was for me a mini-revelation itself. Thanks Stavrakakis. The orientation of this book was different than that of, say, fink's intros to lacan in that, as the title suggests, this is geared towards explicitly elucidating the political implications of Lacan's project, rather than f [...]

Excellent introduction and elaboration: Lacan is an inherently difficult writer to understand; Stavrakakis provides one of the most lucid introduction to his ideas, serving to ground in clear terms the applicability of Lacanian concepts to the political and the social. While I have some disagreements with his elaborations and conclusions, these stem more from the breadth of my own developed Lacanian education- entirelly thanks to Stavrakakis- rather than what I initially brought to the experienc [...]

این کتاب را با ترجمه ی عالی محمد علی جعفری خوندم. برای ورود به بعد جامعه شناسی ِ روانشناسی ِ لاکان، کتاب خوبی است ( در واقع تنها کتابی که به فارسی ترجمه شده ). نویسنده ی کتاب هم یکی از تئوری پردازهای علوم سیاسی در یونان است

A wonderfully clear and reader-friendly book on (1) Lacan's thought/practice, and (2) the implications for social sciences. I plan to use this at the undergraduate level.
