Saywrane Alfonso Williams (Author)

Independent Researcher


This review analyzes Philipp Valentini and Mahdi Tourage’s Esoteric Lacan, describing the work in detail and the book review author’s reflections on it. Esoteric Lacan is a one-of-a-kind dialogue between Lacan and various religio-cultural studies. The study takes an interdisciplinary and interlocutive approach to ideas Lacan conversed with and goes beyond a Eurocentric context. The collection spans the gamut from Gnosticism to Judaism to Kabbalistic musings to Afropessimism to the Lacanian discourses to the Borromean Knot and Sinthome to Ibn ‘Arabī and much more.
