It was not really all that hard reading the Lacan because of how it is organized into sections. Had I not been in class to get a brief overview about this, I may have been more confused. There really was no outlined, simple version of the Lacan but I grabbed a few helpful summaries that did the trick. It would be useful to find something or write something out in class that would clearly outline the development of the mirror stage, The Body as Gestalt, The Fragmented Body, and the Existential interpretation into a simple study guide. I also was not sure if you wanted notes on the Lacan, or the summary of Lacan that I found. Hopefully this is accurate.
