About the Author

Raul Moncayo is training director for Mission Mental Health, San Francisco and a supervising analyst at the Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis of the San Francisco Bay Area, California. He also has a private practice in which he provides psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, consultation, and supervision.


"This book is a landmark. Far beyond another elucidation of Lacanian theory and practice this book is the first innovation that extends Lacanian and Freudian approaches to contemporary ethos and environments. Beyond poststructuralism and postmodernism it contains numerous innovations of Lacanian concepts regarding femininity and masculinity, brief analysis, trace and trait. The notions of the void, lack, and emptiness are put to work in relation to a fourth moment of Oedipus and to the decline of the paternal function. Only someone with a long track of commitment and study of the Freudian-Lacanian corpus, as well as contemporary psychoanalysis, could have brought such remarkable innovations." - Andre Patsalides, University of Louvain, Belgium
