A lecture and conversation with Marc Strauss presented by Das Unbehagen
A couple have a child.
What do we call what they have when they only “have” one another?
Freud said there were always more in bed than justified t two… How do we think of this “more” psychoanalytically? Is this more the sexual object?
What about the Other sex? How does sexual odifference impact our choice of objects in the vicissitudes of sexual relationships? These, and other questions, will be tackled during this seminar on the core asymmetries that define psychoanalytic work.
Chaired by Chiara Bottici and Jamieson Webster
