The Late Lacan and Beyond: Advanced Psychoanalysis for Beginners
Co-sponsored by Analytica and Unbehagen
NPAP 40 W 13th NY (And By Virtual Attendance)
In Lacan’s last years he extended his work in psychoanalysis and put the capstone on a life of innovative practice. By now his basic concepts have been the subject of innumerable “Lacan for Beginners” books and classes while his late seminars, texts, school and clinic have rarely been explicated in French let alone in English. This event will demonstrate the significance of Lacan’s last efforts and those that have continued this work.
The seminar will serve to introduce the work of Analytica and its affiliates. It will begin with an introduction to the late Lacan and a genealogy of its descendants and will continue with an ongoing series of invited guests from the field who have extended analytic work into new forms of intensive analysis and institutional practice, especially in America.
Those already familiar with Lacan will discover the power of his late work to extend Freud’s invention into the future. Those unfamiliar with Lacan will be introduced to him in a uniquely direct way with comparisons to other psychoanalytic perspectives and a demonstration of his methods.
This seminar is presented as an Analytica and Unbehagen crossover event and thus is open to the public at large free of charge as well as to Analytica members. For those who wish to attend by virtual transmission please contact the Operations Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Subjects will include:
1. The myth of the short session
2. The disappearance of the couch
3. The dis-solution of the symptom
4. The re-solution of the Oedipus complex
5. Ordinary psychosis and universal madness
6. Analysis in intension and analysis in extension
7. Discourse theory beyond the 4 (+1) discourses
8. The clinical practice of topology, art, mathematics, and poetics in analysis
9. The intersection of the clinic and the school at the impasse of institutionalization
10. The use value of the cartel, the pass, the demonstration, the sclinic, the assemblage, and schizoanalysis for the future of analysis
