Perversion in Modern Japan


Jarvis32 sends me this:
Speaking of Lacan and Japan, I just came across this press release for the new book Peversion in Modern Japan (Routledge, 2009), which examines modern Japanese culture and literature using the methods of psychoanalysis. (I sniff a stinky Zizek behind this recent Lacan craze). I’m particularly looking forward to reading Professor Hayter’s article on Ishikawa Jun, titled “In the Flesh: The Historical Unconscious of Ishikawa Jun’s Fugen,” which should be of interest to you as well.

Exactly what I was thinking, how do these "gringos" know what they are discussing here? Maybe someone who has lived in Tokyo for several years is more suited to this type of work. Just a thought. JMM
