You can be Lacanians; as for me, I'm a Freudian.

Jacques Lacan

In ‘In place of an introduction’ to The Seminar of Jacques Lacan. Book I. Freud's Papers on Technique, 1953-1954, published in Free Associations 10, I provided some of the historical and conceptual back ground to the seminar Jacques Lacan gave as part of the training programme of the Société Française de Psychanalyse (SFP), founded in June 1953. The topic for the second year of Lacan's training seminar for the SFP was announced as ‘The ego in Freud's theory and in the technique of psychoanalysis’. Certain sessions of the seminar provided Lacan with the basis for publications produced later in the 1950s, in particular the famous ‘Seminar on “The Purloined Letter”’ (see Lacan [1972]), which appeared in the journal of the SFP, La Psychanalyse (vol. II, 1956). Lacan chose this as the opening text in his Ecrits, published in 1966. It was translated into English by Jeffrey Mehlman (Yale French Studies, 1972).
