This workshop will address the significance of topology for the understanding of narcissism, the construction of the body, and the relation of the subject to reality. Read the rest of this post »

Fear of Speaking: The Virulence of Aphasia with Paula Hochman Vappereau

aprescoupscream

Friday, December 9, 2016, 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm, The School of Visual Arts, 136 West 21st Street, New York, NY

When subjects speak they address themselves to an other who listens, while also evoking the big Other. The spread of virtual contact, which eludes a real other, is a breeding ground for aphasia. This presentation will address the act of speaking and the virulence of aphasia today.

Suggested Readings: Lacan: Seminar VI, Le Désir et son Interprétation, 1958-59, class of February 11, 1959; Seminar VIII, Le Transfert, 1960-61, classes of April 19 and 26, 1961. Read the rest of this post »
