LACAN READS FREUD'S CASES

Whereas Freud’s legacy is partly made up of detailed case presentations, Lacan rarely presented his own cases but revisited Freud’s case studies so as to expand the theory of psychoanalysis. This seminar will consist in readings of Freud and Lacan focusing on the original cases and their analyses.
​This seminar proposes to read Freud and Lacan together i.e. the original cases and its analyses. A suggested reading list will be provided to the participants ahead of each meeting. Specific passages might be read aloud and commented during the meetings. For this meeting we will read Fräulein Elisabeth von R. from Freud’s & Breuer’s Studies on Hysteria.
