Malcolm Bowie traces the development of Lacan’s ideas over the fifty-year span of his writing and teaching career. The primary focus is on the fascinating mutations in Lacan’s interpretation of Freud.
Bowie reinserts the celebrated slogans–“The unconscious is the discourse of the Other,” “The unconscious is structured like a language,” and so forth–into the history of Lacan’s thinking, and pinpoints the paradoxes and anomalies that mark his account of human sexuality. This book provides a firm basis for the critical evaluation of Lacan’s ideas and the rhetoric in which they are embedded; it is based on a close reading of Lacan’s original texts but presupposes no knowledge of French in the reader.
Although Bowie is sharply critical of Lacan on several major analytic questions, he argues that Lacan is the only psychoanalyst after Freud whose intellectual achievement is seriously comparable to Freud’s own.

Bowie is well-equipped to undertake such a task, with a vast knowledge of the material and a writing style that is generally easy enough to follow although I suspect readers who are entirely new to Lacan will still find it a challenge. Bowie’s book has a bit more of a historical sense than some other books of this kind.
