Après-Coup PSYCHOANALYTIC ASSOCIATION

Wednesday, October 22, 2014
8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

INTRODUCING LACAN: ON THE THREE REGISTERS, Seminar

LILLIAN FERRARI, DAVID LICHTENSTEIN, PAOLA MIELI, ADRIANA PASSINI, MARK STAFFORD, MARTIN WINN

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.

MEETING SCHEDULE: The seminar will be held from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm on the following Wednesdays: October 8 & 22, November 19, December 10, January 14, February 4 & 25, March 18, April 8 & 29, May 20, June 10.

MEETING PLACE: The School of Visual Arts, 136 West 21st Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues), New York City. Please ask at the front desk for the room number.

ATTENDANCE FEE: The seminar is open to everyone, and there is no fee.

 

REGISTRATION: For information, please call Martin Winn at (212) 677-1147 or check our website at http://www.apres-coup.org/
