==Translation==
Translator, Alan Sheridan, has decided to retain the French word.
 
The sense is of a "failure to recognize", or "misconstruction".
 
The concept is central to [[Lacan]]'s thinking, since, for him, [[knowledge]] (''conaissance'') is inextricably bound up with ''méconnaissance''.

The [[French]] term ''[[méconnaissance]]'' corresponds roughly to the [[English]] words "[[Méconnaissance|misunderstanding]]" and "[[Méconnaissance|misrecognition]]".
