Henry Bond,Slavoj Žižek's Lacan at the Scene (Short Circuits) PDF

By Henry Bond,Slavoj Žižek

What if Jacques Lacan--the extraordinary and whimsical Parisian psychoanalyst--had labored as a police detective, making use of his theories to resolve crimes? this can conjure up a psychological movie clip starring Peter in a trench coat, yet in Lacan on the Scene, Henry Bond makes a significant and provocative declare: that it sounds as if impenetrable occasions of violent demise might be extra successfully unraveled with Lacan's idea of psychoanalysis than with problematic, technologically complicated forensic instruments. Bond's exposition on homicide expands and develops a resolutely Žižekian technique. searching out radical and unforeseen readings, Bond unpacks his fabric using Lacan's neurosis-psychosis-perversion grid.Bond areas Lacan on the crime scene and builds his argument via a chain of archival crime scene photos from the 1950s--the interval while Lacan was once constructing his influential theories. it isn't the horror of the ravished and mutilated corpses that pulls his cognizance; in its place, he interrogates probably minor info from the typical, setting apart and rephotographing what in the beginning turns out insignificant: a unmarried excessive heeled shoe on a kitchen desk, for instance, or rigorously folded outfits put over a chair. From those mundane information he conscientiously builds a strong and complete handbook for Lacanian crime research which may stand beside the FBI's standard-issue Crime type Manual.
