On the Subject’s Relation to Knowledge with Paola Mieli at Après-Coup

Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association presents

SEMINAR: On the Subject’s Relation to Knowledge with Paola Mieli
Friday, February 16, 2018, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, The School of Visual Arts, 136 West 21st Street, Room 408, New York, NY

Returning to Freud and Lacan, this seminar will reflect on the function that knowledge and belief play in the subject’s relation to the world. Denial, disavowal, foreclusion—and their subjective and collective implications—will be explored, as well as the differences between unconscious and conscious knowledge, between savoir, connaissance and savoir faire.

Readings for February 16th: S. Freud, On the Sexual Theories of Children, 1908, Family Romances, 1908; Neurosis and Psychosis, 1923; J. Lacan, Seminar Book 1, Chapter XXI; M. Foucault, History of Sexuality, Book 1, Chapter 5.

Paola Mieli is a psychoanalyst practicing in New York City. She is the president of Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association (New York), a member of Le Cercle Freudien (Paris), Encore (Paris), The European Federation of Psychoanalysis (Strasbourg), and an Associate Researcher at the Centre de Recherches en Psychanalyse, Médicine et Société at the University of Paris VII–Diderot. The author of numerous essays on psychoanalysis and on culture, she recently published the book Figures of Space. Subject, Body, Space (New York, 2017).
