Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of football. Never again be found wanting when asked what Albert Camus said about the ‘beautiful’ game, why a surprising number of other famous writers and thinkers opted to play ‘between the sticks’, why a rotation system is not to be confused with a revolving door management policy, and why an impressive collection of trophies is no way to describe the perma-tanned WAGs in the directors’ box.

Bluffer's Guide To Brexit

There are few, if any, subjects better suited to the noble art of bluffing than Brexit! This book gives the basics of Brexit: the history behind Britain’s relationship with Europe, the referendum itself and the way it divided (and continues to divide) this country, the legalities of the split, and some of the areas which will be most affected. It drops in a few French, Latin and Greek terms, which the Bluffer should use to portray a certain je ne sais quoi. Bluffer's Guide To Brexit is not a ‘How To’ guide, but rather a ‘How To Pretend You Know How To’ guide. (There is a subtle distinction.) So it will enable The Bluffer to drop in some esoteric facts, make a few opaque allusions, and convey the kind of inside knowledge usually confined to the most senior civil servants. This book is a must for the current political climate!

Lacan

A Beginner's Guide

Author: Lionel Bailly

Publisher: Oneworld Publications

ISBN: 1780741626

Category: Psychology

Page: 248

Jacques Lacan was one of the most important psychoanalysts ever to have lived. Building upon the work of Sigmund Freud, he sought to refine Freudian insights with the use of linguistics, arguing that “the structure of unconscious is like a language”. Controversial throughout his lifetime both for adopting mathematical concepts in his psychoanalytic framework and for advocating therapy sessions of varying length, he is widely misunderstood and often unfairly dismissed as impenetrable. In this clear, wide-ranging primer, Lionel Bailly demonstrates how Lacan’s ideas are still vitally relevant to contemporary issues of mental health treatment. Defending Lacan from his numerous detractors, past and present, Bailly guides the reader through Lacan’s canon, from “l'objet petit a” to “The Mirror Stage” and beyond. Including coverage of developments in Lacanian psychoanalysis since his death, this is the perfect introduction to the great modern theorist.
