Dear Colleagues,

Although the summer weather invites outdoor activities, I hope that the long July 4th weekend will afford an opportunity for you ( especially given the stormy weather today) to read the posts on the international psychoanalytic website. There is an unusual number of entries this week and I had a difficult time choosing a some over others but as usual, I have picked out a few posts that interested me and have listed them below, followed by the entire list of contents. I continue to be amazed at the relevance of the posts to the current world political and social situation. Our profession gives us a perspective that we need to spread into society to have an impact.

My choices:

1) I am struck by the upcoming announcement: Totem and Taboo After Auschwitz with Betty Fuks at Aprss-Coup’ The theme is as relevant today as it was then; try to attend.

LACAN ON PSYCHOANALYTIC SAVOIR-FAIRE AND THE SINTHOME, Seminar
ADRIANA PASSINI and MARTIN WINN

The second fundamental concept that Lacan proposes in Seminar XI is “Repetition”.
We will examine this concept through out the function of the “Tuche”, as Lacan names it, the encounter with the Real, in so far as, it is essentially the missed encounter.
We will pay special attention to the notion of the Real as trauma and its paradoxical connection with the Pleasure Principle. Read the rest of this post »
