  • Descrizione: this chapter presents central figures related to the origins and evolution of postmodernist theory and culture. these names starting with the alphabet l include: jacques lacan and jean‐françois lyotard. lacan is still concerned mainly with what he calls the imaginary. if the symbolic is a matter of the purely differential, the imaginary is a matter of identities and likenesses. the mirror‐stage is probably the best‐known aspect of lacan's work, but it's easy to forget that it's a false start. at the same time that lacan is beginning to formulate the symbolic, in the early‐to‐mid 1950s, the real also becomes a consideration, and one that comes to dominate his later work. a prolific writer whose work is an experiment no less in style than thought, lyotard's ideas can be organized roughly around three successive themes: the libidinal, the pagan and the postmodern.
