Ethics of Psychoanalysis - Lacan’s Antigone and the Ethics of Interpretation - Ethics of Psychoanalysis - Lacan’s Antigone and the Ethics of Interpretation My paper examines Lacan’s reading of the Antigone as an allegory of our own textual and ethical obligations as readers and critics.

Due to his vivid description of Raskolnikov, Dostoevsky shows his readers first hand what a sociopath is like....   [tags: Crime and Punishment Essays]
