This seminar, which requires prior familiarity with Freud’s basic texts, is intended as an introduction to Jacques Lacan’s theory of the Real, the Symbolic, and the Imaginary as structuring human subjectivity.

Lacan’s conceptualization of these registers is an essential tool for understanding both the impact of Freud’s Copernican revolution on 20th-century thought and the direction of treatment in psychoanalysis. Our goal is to show how all three registers are operative in these central psychoanalytic concepts: the subject of language, the mirror stage, the unconscious, angst, repetition, and the drives.

SUGGESTED READINGS FOR WEDNESDAY APRIL 8th:
“The Mirror Stage” and “Remarks on Daniel Lagache’s Presentation” from Ecrits.

This seminar meets on Wednesdays from 8:00–9:30pm on the dates above at The School of Visual Arts, 136 West 21st Street, New York, NY. Please ask at the front desk for the room number.

This event is free and open to the public.
