This lecture focuses on language itself. It asks many questions. What is Language? How do we acquire and use language? Do we exist inside/outside of language? The word is the beginning and the end, so where do we fit in to the word.

Ferdinand de Saussure, linguist, and Jacques Lacan, psychologist, help us explore the subjective and objective realities of the word and our relationship to it. Enjoy this introduction to the nature of "The Word."
