    If you re interested in Lacan, do yourself a favor and open up this book to the first chapter and read Alain Badiou s essay on Lacan and the Pre Socratics It s a masterpiece After all, most people wouldn t think of the pre Socratics as a key influence on Lacan, but through a careful reading Badiou shows how the connections between love, hate, truth and knowledge were established by Empedocles and then radicalized by Heraclitus, the originary thinker of discord, of non relation p.11.Miran Bo ovi gives a superb reading of Diderot s Les Bijoux indiscrets although what it has to do with Lacan is not exactly clear, since he is not mentioned once in the whole essay.Adrian Johnston tries to ally Lacan with Schelling, another unlikely pairing Unlike Badiou, he doesn t have the relevant textual support, and this connection feels overly circumstantial.Timothy Huson brings together Lacan and Hegel, hardly a new combination, and while it s a decent reading, I felt like it was too optimistically synthetic in finding a solution to the dialectic of the subject.Silvia Ons chooses Nietzsche as her consort, wrongly claiming that the two have not been compared before I didn t find this chapter convincing.Joan Copjec takes a leaf out of her earlier book Read My Desire Lacan Against the Historicists by talking about Lacan and May 1968 She analyzes, in particular, the looming challenge of the university discourse to revolution, and the surprisingly positive role that shame can play in putting a reasonable limit on transgression There were parts of this essay I really liked, but others that were so abstract I could barely follow them.Bruno Bosteels has a long essay on Badiou that largely went over my head I need to read Badiou, clearly.Alenka Zupan i has a chapter on comedy that is a rehash of the opening chapter of The Odd One In On Comedy I m not impressed.Robert Pfaller also addresses comedy in his chapter, with somewhat better results Slavoj i ek contributes the next two chapters the first is on the interplay between real and imaginary that starts off well and then gets lost, the second is a defense of Wagner, a topic in which I have almost zero interest The next four chapters are all literary readings Sigi J ttkandt on Turgenev s First Love, i ek on Henry James, Mladen Dolar on Kafka, and Lorenzo Chiesa on Artaud.The book closes with a chapter by Fredric Jameson I am yet to see him write anything interesting about Lacan.Lacan The Silent Partners is not a perfect collection, but it does have some good stuff in here, with Badiou s opening essay being the clear highlight It is also refreshing to read a collection that doesn t have the same boring disciples of Jacques Alain Miller, but instead features a new generation of Lacanians who are far daring and innovative than the ones who have come before.
