In this book, Malcolm Bowie provides yet another "Lacan for beginners" text that was obviously popular at the time. 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. As such, he opens with a chapter on the complex relationship In this book, Malcolm Bowie provides yet another "Lacan for beginners" text that was obviously popular at the time. As such, he opens with a chapter on the complex relationship between Freud and Lacan, observing cannily that "Lacan's argument is conducted on Freud's behalf and, at the same time, against him" p.
The rest of the book is organized into a kind of "greatest hits" of Lacanian concepts, starting with an explanation of Lacan's notion of the divided subject Ch. Bowie moves from there to the relationship between language and the unconscious Ch. Bowie's book is a solid but unremarkable introduction to Lacan.

The French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan is a uniquely complex writer and the originator of an especially unsettling view of the human subject. But the singularity of Lacan's achievement has been understated by many of his critics. Often he is seen merely as a figure famous for being famous--an essential reference point in structuralist and poststructuralist debate--rather than as a theorist whose writings demand and reward detailed scrutiny. 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.
