Gautam Basu Thakur

Gautam Basu Thakur and Jonathan Dickstein’s edited book “Lacan and the Nonhuman” was reviewed in January by Choice, a publishing unit of the Association of College and Research Libraries.

From the review: “Thakur and Dickstein have collected essays which integrate a neglected discourse between the recent ‘nonhuman turn’ in the humanities and psychoanalysis … . This new, original angle is lively with possibilities. … The book is suited to faculty and advanced students of philosophy, critical theory, psychoanalysis (especially Lacanian), and the history of ideas. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and professionals.” (R. H. Balsam, Choice, Vol. 56 (5), January, 2019)
