In addition to publishing the psychoanalytic work of members of the Irish School for Lacanian Psychoanalysis (ISLP), the journal has a remit to publish articles arising from work in other fields of enquiry, which engages with Sigmund Freud’s description of the unconscious and Jacques Lacan’s elaboration of that concept.


The journal has published articles by over 100 authors from philosophers, critics, psychiatrists, from theologians and mythologists, from mathematicians and classicists, from theorists and writers.


Put simply, we welcome contributions from scholars, practitioners and artists of all disciplines, and from anyone who engages in questions about the role of the unconscious in relation to knowledge and human endeavour. We do not ordinarily limit the length of contributions. We do however require that these be prepared in conformity with the style sheet of The Letter. Contact us to find out more.
