"I Am Counting on the Tourbillon": On the Late Lacan, by Jason E. Smith

Jacques Lacan, Past and present

“If Lacan’s rightly celebrated Seminar VII from 1959-60 elaborates a properly psychoanalytic ethics through the intransigent figure of Antigone and her refusal to give way on her desire, Badiou and Roudinesco emphasize instead a certain ethical and tragic dimension to Lacan’s late style.” – Jason E. Smith

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 translator Jason E. Smith’s foreword: “‘I Am Counting on the Tourbillon’: On the Late Lacan.”
