The Future Analyst: Analytica Seminar 2017-18 – Dr Scott Von + Invited Guests
NPAP 40 W 13th NY (And By Virtual Attendance Internationally) – Free and Open
In this Seminar we take up Lacan’s late work on “Psychoanalysis in Extension” in which he tries to extend analysis from the clinic to the school and the social band – thus linking Freud’s three impossible professions of psychoanalysis, education, and politics. We will examine crucial aspects of Lacan’s Freudian School and how it gave rise to a multiplicity of other schools in its wake which carry on the transmission of a particular approach to psychoanalysis essential to our times – and the unfulfilled promise of a clinic of the Future Analyst
Psychoanalytic method and ethics is anchored by the “Desire of the Analyst”: an approach to the subject that transforms the three impossible professions of cure, transmission and polis equally with a view toward the new, different, and unique. This ethic of “Xenophilia” has profound implications for the future of the social band.
We will cover the following topics:
A. The three impossible professions of analysis in extension
1. To cure: analysis contra therapy
2. To teach: transmission contra education
3. To govern: autopoesis contra governance
