9780817317782: Lacan in Public: Psychoanalysis and the Science of Rhetoric (Albma Rhetoric Cult & Soc Crit)

Lacan in Public argues that rhetoric is one of the central concerns of Jacques Lacan's psychoanalysis. Christian Lundberg argues that Lacan's contributions to a theory of rhetoric are not only substantial, but that the psychoanalyst's work has potentially revolutionary implications for our understanding of public discourse.
  Despite Lacan's sustained attention to the character of rhetoric, scholars in rhetorical studies have rarely engaged Lacan as a rhetorical theorist. Though he explicitly contends with some of the pivotal thinkers in the field of rhetoric (Aristotle, Cicero, and Quintilian) and familiar topoi (the oratorical tradition, the power of trope, stasis theory, and questions of contingency and context), rhetorical studies has been reticent to embrace the French thinker not only because his writing is difficult and because his conception of rhetoric runs counter to our received wisdom regarding rhetorical discourse. Lacan's conception of rhetoric, argues Lundberg, upsets and extends the received wisdom of American rhetorical studies--claiming that rhetoric is a science, rather than an art; that rhetoric is predicated not on the reciprocal exchange of meanings, but rather on the impossibility of such an exchange; and that rhetoric never achieves a correspondence with the world of referents that it attempts to describe. Lundberg proceeds from an analysis of Lacan's most recognizable maxim--"the unconscious is structured like a language"--arguing that this maxim can only be understood in the light of Lacan's proclamations that "the universe is a flower of rhetoric" and that "the psychoanalyst is a rhetor." From these starting points, Lundberg advances a rhetorical theory drawn from Lacanian psychoanalysis that provides a systematic account of rhetoric while simultaneously contributing to contemporary scholarship on Lacan. As Lundberg shows, Lacan's work speaks directly to conversations at the center of current scholarship in rhetoric and the humanities more broadly, including debates regarding the nature of the public and public discourses, the materiality of discourse, agency, and the contours of a theory of persuasion.

About the Author:

Christian Lundberg is an assistant professor of communication studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His articles have appeared in Cultural Studies, Quarterly Journal of Speech, Pre/Text, Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, and Rhetoric Society Quarterly.

Review:

"Christian Lundberg's Lacan in Public is an intellectual treat. This fresh and exciting book invites its readers to taste an unusual fusion of theoretical and critical flavors." -Anna Baranchuk, Rhetoric and Public Affairs

"Lundberg's intervention is the first sustained effort to treat Lacan's expansive, dense, and often opaque oeuvre as a fully formed theory of rhetoric. In fact, the book persuasively advances the provocative claim that Lacan pushes rhetoric in far more promising directions than the academic disciplines of rhetorical and composition studies have managed to date.... Lundberg's argument that Lacan offers a potentially transformative theory of rhetoric is thoroughly convincing, as is his adroit reconstruction of this theory."  -Michael Kaplan, Philosophy and Rhetoric

"Lacan in Public is important because it takes seriously Lacan's claim that "the universe is the flower of rhetoric," and thereby renders rhetoric ontological as the dynamic interplay of trope and investment in the face of failed unicity. At the same time, Lundberg makes a compelling case for the importance of Lacan in rhetorical studies." -Thomas Rickert, Quarterly Journal of Speech

Lacan in Public makes an argument that is original and powerful, both because it newly illuminates many of Lacan's texts and because it helps firmly move rhetorical theory and criticism in a psychoanalytic direction—a direction in which it has been leaning for some time and for which there is growing enthusiasm. In fact, I believe that this book has the potential to be the ’go-to book on rhetoric and Lacanian theory’ for novices and seasoned scholars alike working in rhetorical studies, cultural studies, and political theory.”—Barbara A. Biesecker, author of Addressing Postmodernity: Kenneth Burke, Rhetoric, and a Theory of Social Change

“Lacan in Public is a remarkably insightful and provocative book. Lundberg’s rigorous and richly detailed arguments will be of interest not only to rhetoric and communication scholars, but to any serious student of the humanities. Without question, Lacan in Public is the definitive study of the rhetorical theory both explicit and implied in Lacan’s body of thought. This striking achievement is the benchmark against which all future studies of Lacan’s rhetorical theory will be compared.”--Joshua Gunn, associate professor of Communication Studies at the University of Texas at Austin and author of Modern Occult Rhetoric: Mass Media and the Drama of Secrecy in the Twentieth Century
