After a long production process my new book on the subject of autistic subjectivity is out. You can find it now in e-book version or hard-cover version on the publisher’s website. In the book I progress my thesis that autism is a unique mode-of-being that cannot be reduced to what psychoanalysis defines as neurosis, perversion or psychosis. Moreover, I present my theory of the autistic linguistic spectrum: an alternative to the common Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) framework. In this sense, I argue that autism should not be strictly referred to as a developmental disorder but a subjective vantage point that is fundamentally linked to one’s identity and basic practices of existence. The chapters of the book lay out an argumentative line that engages with many of Jacques Lacan’s insights on the speaking being. However, if you are not interested in a through analysis of Lacanian terms and mostly want to get a glimpse into my linguistic theory of autism, try and read Chapter 7: The Autistic Linguistic Spectrum.
