Écrits is a book by Jacques Lacan first published by Éditions du Seuil in 1966. The collection spans 30 years of Lacan's career and contains 35 texts, from "Beyond the 'Reality Principle'" (1936) and "The Mirror Stage" (1937) to "Science and Truth" (1966). Most of the texts date from the 1950s and 1960s — a turning point in Lacan's development: his shift in focus from language, the imaginary and symbolic orders to the concepts of the real, fantasy and the objet petit a. The Écrits were most recently translated by Bruce Fink.
From the publisher:
- Brilliant and innovative, Jacques Lacan's work lies at the epicenter of modern thought about otherness, subjectivity, sexual difference, the drives, the law, and enjoyment. This new translation of his complete works offers welcome, readable access to Lacan's seminal thinking on diverse subjects touched upon over the course of his inimitable intellectual career.
