NEW READING SEMINAR

JACQUES LACAN: ORDINARY AND EXTRAORDINARY PSYCHOSIS

Lacan’s encounter with psychosis made him a psychoanalyst. This seminar will explore the evolution of Lacan’s original theory of madness from his early thesis on paranoia to his later notion of the sinthome. We will engage in close readings of texts by Freud, Lacan and other authors (Jean Allouch, Darian Leader, Russell Grigg, Jean-Claude Maleval, Stijn Vanheule, Nestor Braunstein, Paul Verhaeghe, Genevieve Morel.)

In this reading group we engage in a close reading of the texts followed by a discussion. The seminar is open to everyone interested.
