Philadelphia Lacan Study Group

Saturday, July 9, 2011 (10:30 am to 2:30 pm)



The format of the summer seminar is new. We will engage in a close reading of the text followed by a discussion. The meetings will be on Saturdays and last 4 hours each.
Meetings are open to everyone interested. There will be four meetings and they will take place in a private office in Center City. The meeting location will be communicated directly to those who want to participate.

We will work on 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 the object (a), to the later formulation of love as a failure of the Unconscious.

This seminar will prepare for the Clinical Study Weekend that will be held at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA Saturday and Sunday, 8 – 9 October 2011. (additional info
