ARCP 7: Lacan and Critical Psychology
This issue of the Annual Review of Critical Psychology mobilises an exploration and consideration of the utility of Lacan’s psychoanalysis for critical psychology in particular, and for critical research/theory/practice in general. As such, contributors to this issue tease out the problematics and the potentialities involved in such a project. A framework is imposed according to which the reader may refer in their engagement with the work herein.
Part 1 consists of articles that are addressed directly to questions of the applicability of a specifically Lacanian psychoanalysis to critical disciplines. Authors of these articles present concerned analyses and considerations of the effects upon the discipline(s) of an engagement with Lacanian psychoanalysis. Part 2 consists of articles that take a particular concept of Lacan’s and interrogate it for its utility, effects, and consequences for critical research. Part 3 consists of articles that present critical research and/or practice that incorporates a wholly or partially Lacanian informed methodology. Part 4 consists of two review essays that – far from presenting any merely straightforward ‘book review’ – crucially engage with the problematic involvement of Lacan with critical psychology. Finally, Part 5 of this volume consists of two interviews: one with Slavoj Žižek conducted by Ian Parker, and the other with Karolos Kambelopoulos conducted by Ian Parker, Erica Burman and Stavros Psaroudakis.
