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

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

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
