There are very few psychoanalysts who have reached the heights of Freud, but Jacques Lacan has made his mark through unique research in the field of sexual differences, and has given a new perspective on the infamous Oedipus complex. Jacques researched thoroughly on various subjects, and showcased his work with real life examples. All the hidden secrets of the unconscious mind have been mentioned in his detailed work of clinical practice. among his famous works that have created a lot of buzz includes Visual Pleasure and narrative cinema, sexuality in the field of vision, and the sublime object of ideology.
Among many other psychoanalysts, Jacques also tackled Freud’s theory, and tried to enhance it with his own. Lacan has taken things to another level, and in 1950’s he came out with an idea of ‘Return of the Freud’, which was, perhaps, the beginning of a new era. He has since been working to reconstitute the theory of psychoanalysis, and wish to achieve new heights. With a charismatic and flamboyant personality, Jacques became a controversial figure while he was a teacher. It was just a matter of time till he realized his true potential, and started working in the field of psychoanalysis.
Jacques has gained immense popularity among the critics for being the most confusing among many other people. While Freud’s work was suspenseful and gripping, many critics find it really hard to agree with him. In the case of Jacques, however, there is a very complex detail that bothers many critics, but once you understand the idea it is guaranteed to fascinate. Lacan was a clinician before he become a teacher, explaining his complex writings, but the experience that he gained from all the practical work outshines his writings from the rest.
Since psychoanalysis has been criticized for being irrelevant, the lives of many researchers who have wasted all their lives learning about the nature of human mind suffered. However, Lacanian pschoanalysis may bring some life into this field of study. He has a lot to offer, and with some of the signs seen in our real lives, it is quite safe to say that there is indeed something beyond our senses. As far as Jacques Lacan and his work go, there has been some amazing revolutionary changes in the field of psychoanalysis that has altered the course of its research, and it’s all because of this man.
