One Master, Two Encounters, by Alain Badiou and Élisabeth Roudinesco

Jacques Lacan, Past and present

“Lacan always remained for me a thinker of the first order rather than a psychoanalytic master. Always the primacy of the written!” – Alain Badiou

This week our featured book is Jacques Lacan, Past and Present: A Dialogue, by Alain Badiou and Élisabeth Roudinesco. Today, we have an excerpt from the beginning of their discussion, in which Roudinesco and Badiou both describe their first encounters with Lacan’s work and Lacan himself.
