Often Overlooked Essays in Écrits: "On My Antecedents"

Our recent podcast on “The Subversion of the Subject and the Dialect of Desire” began with a question: If you could recommend only one essay in Écrits, which would it be?

Today, I’d like to ask a different question — and, with it, to take our podcast in a new direction: Which of Lacan’s essays have you often skipped over, in order to focus on more iconic pieces in Écrits?

First on my list has always been “On My Antecedents.” Until last fall, that is, when I decided to record a semester’s worth of mini-lectures on often overlooked essays in Écrits!

Here’s the first recording in the series — on Lacan’s antecedents, of course! Stay tuned for more recordings on more essays in the coming weeks!
