    There are certain clear landmarks that stand out in the development of Jacques Lacan s career, most of which correspond to the topics of his seminars Seminar VII, for instance, is a groundbreaking look at ethics and pyschoanalysis Seminar XI follows on the heels of Lacan s ex communication from the IPA Seminar XX reveals his thoughts on sexuation and feminine sexuality Seminar XXIII develops his ideas about the sinthome.Increasingly, I have come to see the importance of Seminar XVII among There are certain clear landmarks that stand out in the development of Jacques Lacan s career, most of which correspond to the topics of his seminars Seminar VII, for instance, is a groundbreaking look at ethics and pyschoanalysis Seminar XI follows on the heels of Lacan s ex communication from the IPA Seminar XX reveals his thoughts on sexuation and feminine sexuality Seminar XXIII develops his ideas about the sinthome.Increasingly, I have come to see the importance of Seminar XVII among these other landmarks, especially because it articulates most clearly the link between psychoanalysis and politics This superb collection of essays affirms the centrality of Seminar XVII in the development of Lacan s thought.Jacques Alain Miller opens the book with a meditation on shame, a crucial concept in Lacan s critique of the imperative to enjoy While Miller doesn t put it in these terms, Lacan sees those who have given in to the enjoyment of the master s discourse have essentially sold out, and thus ought to be ashamed by how they have been tricked and seduced into being slaves.Another highlight of the collection is Russell Grigg s delineation of Lacan s dramatic turnaround, in this seminar, regarding the importance of the Oedipus complex Grigg brilliantly untangles the historical layers of this argument, showing how there are different father related discourses tailored for hysterical and neurotic discourses, all grounded in Freud s desire to save the father Yetevidence that, by the late 1960s, Lacan was already moving toward an anti Oedipal model.The very best piece, however, is a dazzling essay by Mladen Dolar, who interweaves a reading of Hegel into the famous four discourses that Lacan outlines in Seminar XVII Dolar does an amazing job of showing how Hegel is made by Lacan to take up the positions of Master, Professor university discourse , and hysteric, even though these seem to contradict one another.I have to admit that I found the last section of the book under the title Discourses of Everyday Life to be of much less interest than the earlier,theoretical parts Nonetheless, there are plenty of other worthy pieces that I have mentioned in detail by the likes of Dominiek Hoens, Slavoj i ek, and Alenka Zupan i Together, they make this book into a strong collection that validates and explicates the importance of Seminar XVII

    On the one hand, it was kind of satisfying that these presumed experts on Lacanian theory admitted that his concepts in Seminar XVII are slippery and inconsistent, or obviously interpreted them according to their own inclinations and interests On the other hand, the book therefore shed very little light on the seminar.
