Sexual Difference in European Cinema: The Curse of Enjoyment by Fabio Vighi
English | 2009-03-15 | ISBN: 023054925X | 256 pages | PDF | 1 MB

What can European cinema tell us about sexual difference? Can film shed some light on Lacan's infamous thesis that 'there is no such a thing as a sexual relationship'? Fabio Vighi argues that cinema is the ideal medium to unravel not only Lacan's theory of sexuality, but also its social and political implications. This book brings together cinematic fiction and psychoanalysis to identify the repressed kernel that structures our experience as subjects immersed in a specific socio-symbolic context.
