A major systematic study of the connection between Marx and Lacan's work Finalist for the American Board and Academy of Psychoanalysis Book Prize Despite a resurgence of interest in Lacanian psychoanalysis, particularly in terms of the light it casts on capitalist ideology--as witnessed by the work of Slavoj Zizek--there remain remarkably few systematic accounts of the role of Marx in Lacan's work. A major, comprehensive study of the connection between their work, The Capitalist Unconscious resituates Marx in the broader context of Lacan's teaching and insists on the capacity of psychoanalysis to reaffirm dialectical and materialist thought. Lacan's unorthodox reading of Marx refigured such crucial concepts as alienation, jouissance and the Freudian 'labour theory of the unconscious'. Tracing these developments, Tomsič maintains that psychoanalysis, structuralism and the critique of political economy participate in the same movement of thought; his book shows how to follow this movement through to some of its most important conclusions.… (mer)

The Capitalist Unconscious by Samo Tomsic fills a gap in English scholarship on Lacan's use of Marx in formulating his own ideas. Many of the ideas presented are not so much new as that they are brought together in a less common manner.

For readers of Marx and/or Lacan this work will largely serve to juxtapose their thought, as well as Freud's, primarily through the lens of Lacan's teaching and theorizing. While action or practice is certainly where actual change takes place, without theory there is no practice, so lamenting a lack of "clinical" application is what is actually pointless for theory must come first.

To some extent, this book continues the discussion which Tomsic himself mentions in an earlier essay: The indebtedness of Lacan’s theory to Marx’s critique reveals that the psychoanalytic engagement with social reality, too, necessarily amounts to a structural theory of crisis. (in "Psychoanalysis, Capitalism and Critique of Political Economy") It is the structuralist nature of both discourses which bring them into sync.

I would recommend this to those interested in Marx, Lacan or any form of critique of capitalism. Like any good work of scholarship there are as many questions raised as answered and there are many directions in which to take the critique.
