Every time I read about Lacan, it's an explanation of his complicated theories but no reasons as to how he came to arrive at such a complicated model or why it is this model he proposes.

Maybe I should try reading actual Lacan, rather than other people's interpretations of his theories.

@zermelo My two cents on this is that people spend so much time trying to understand him that they feel the need to explain its thesis as much as they can in order to show how clever they are (and indeed they may be)
