Abstract

The Failings of Depression: A Review of Lacanian Psychoanalytic Critiques

Despite that it is cited the leading cause of disability in the world, the notion of depression is not accorded the status of a diagnostic concept in Lacanian psychoanalysis. The wide-ranging reasons for this ‘ex-nomination’ provide the basis of an informative critique of how the concept functions in both the clinic and in much contemporary Western culture today.
