An obtuse enigmatic sadist who enjoyed torturing his students and other psycho-analytic theorists by writing in an intentionally obscure style. He made Derrida look like Mr. Clear and Concise. His only saving grace is that his ideas are so sparse and insignificant compared to Jung, that most likely he will be forgotten in the grander scheme of history.
Lacan's symbolic ideas are pure imaginary, and thus have nothing to do with the real.

If I have to read Lacan again, I will blow a hole in my brain; then again, reading Lacan is virtually blowing a hole in one's brain. Is this repetition with a difference?

The greatest psychoanalyst ever - believed that all things derived from the lack - and that reaching a zero point of desire was impossible- fuck you zizek lets not traverse the fantasy- he kicked deleuze and guatarri's asses every day.
Every single day.
Lacan (even tho he had the girlie middle name marie) was a pimp. A PIMP I TELL U
