BLUNDERS OF THE UNCONSCIOUS: FROM FANTASY TO THE SYMPTOM
Reading and discussion group exploring Lacan’s grammar of fantasy. We will continue our work on two texts of Lacan, Seminar XIV: The Logic of the Phantasm (1966-1967), and Seminar XXIV: L’insu que sait de l’une bévue s’aile à mourre (1976-1977). We will follow Lacan’s progression from his algebra of fantasy via object (a), to the later formulation of love as a failure of the unconscious.
Everyone interested in psychoanalysis is welcome. The reading seminars are an open forum for the discussion of psychoanalysis. Curated by Patricia Gherovici. Seminars are free and open to all. Questions? Email email@example.com.
Kelly Writers House, Room 202, 38th and Locust Streets, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.
