Breaking through Schizophrenia : Lacan and Hegel for Talk Therapy, Hardback Book

Breaking through Schizophrenia : Lacan and Hegel for Talk Therapy Hardback

Part of the New Imago series


Breaking through Schizophrenia builds on the ideas of Jacques Lacan who argued that schizophrenia is a deficient relationship to language, in particular the difficulty to master the metaphoric dimension of language, which children acquire by the Oedipal restructuring of the psyche.

This book is thus a countercultural move to present a less damaging view and a more efficient treatment method for schizophrenic persons.

Through a collection of published and unpublished articles, Ver Eecke traces the path of Lacanian thought.

He discusses the importance of language for the development of human beings and examines the effectiveness of talk therapy through case studies with schizophrenic persons.
