The Stilus editions were created in August 2015.
The term “stilus” comes from the Latin word meaning an instrument that has two functions: at one end it is used for writing and at the other, it erases. From this double function comes the expression vertere stilum meaning to erase and correct. At its origin, Stilus is the manner of writing and as Cicero said, “Stilus optimus et praestantissimus dicendi effector ac magister”, [The pen is the best and the most eminent of artisans and masters of speaking well]. It then evolved in both English and French into the same word, “style”.
The aim of our publications is the promotion and the distribution of works centred on the discourse of psychoanalysis as oriented by the teaching of Jacques Lacan. They will be international in scope, both in terms of distribution to countries outside France, as well inviting authors from other countries to contribute their way of approaching the analytic experience.
Our editorial line focuses on themes linked to the analytic experience and to the disciplines that inform it, such as literature, art, philosophy and science.
Éditions Stilus is arranged into three collections each with a particular theme:
Nouages (Knottings), Résonances (Resonances) and Belle plume (Fine Writing).
All works will be in French.
They will be addressed to all those involved with analytic discourse: psychiatrists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, health professionals, educators, social workers, lawyers, philosophers, writers, researchers, lecturers and students.
