  • Volume 20 The nodal point that is desire
    • Abstract: Schwartz, Susan
      Two moments in Lacan's teaching provide my context. The first occurs in Seminar XI, 'The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis': desire is "the nodal point by which the pulsation of the unconscious is linked to sexual reality" (1981, 153). The second is from Seminar XX, Encore: "Analysis presumes that desire is inscribed on the basis of a corporeal contingency" (1998, 93). What do these two statements tell us about the paradoxes of desire and how do they give an orientation to the analyst, possessed of the desire proper to his function'

  • Volume 20 Discourse, the author and the letter: The limit of sense
    • Abstract: Rogers, Vaughn
      Michel Foucault's paper 'What Is an Author'' was originally a lecture delivered on the 22nd of February, 1969 before the Society of Philosophy at the College of France. Later that year, it was reproduced as an essay in the Society's Bulletin. In it, Foucault addresses the historical concept of the author and then develops an argument in favour of a reconceptualisation of the importance of the author's discrete subjectivity, compared to what the effects the author imagined as function can have on the discursive formations of a society. This paper will explore Foucault's thesis of the author in connection with Jacques Lacan's work, across various periods, towards the 'post-Oedipal' clinic of the real; it will examine some conceptual applications of Foucault's concept of author as function - from the limit of sense, to beyond the limit of sense. This paper is a re-worked piece that was originally delivered at the Australian Centre for Psychoanalysis' Study Day 2014, as one of a few student presentations that sought to elaborate upon questions and learnings from that year's seminars.

  • Volume 20 Lacan's conception of the unconscious through infinitesimal
    • Abstract: Lee, Heeseung Irene
      The aim of the following discussion is to think about the less considered connection between Lacan's conception of the unconscious and his metaphorical comment on infinitesimal calculus at the beginning of the 1964 seminar, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis (1981). By and large, even without resorting to Lacan's note on infinitesimal calculus in this seminar, it is not difficult to recall that Lacan's teaching is abundant with mathematical references. He elaborates and renews the topographical conception of Freud, applies set theory, frequently illustrates the operations of the unconscious through graphs and algorithms, and creates those crucial mathemes that function as quilting points in the knowledge of psychoanalysis. Nevertheless, it has been widely accepted for some time that Lacan's major contribution to Freudian psychoanalysis is found in his unique elaboration of the philosophy of language, which conceptualises the linguistic structure of the unconscious. Hence, the notion of the unconscious in the Lacanian field seems to be overtly determined by his famous maxim "the unconscious is structured like a language" (1981, 20).

  • Volume 20 The symptom as real: The beyond of Oedipal sense in the
           Borromean clinic
    • Abstract: Faye, Esther
      The symptom, says Lacan in his Introduction (19th November 1974) to seminar XXII, RSI (1974-1975), is real ["c'est du reel"]. The symptom, moreover, as he states in the lesson of 18th February 1975, is "the way each one enjoys [jouit de] the unconscious in so far as the unconscious determines it" (98 [98]). It is in this seminar that Lacan embarks on his as yet most focused investigation of the real - the real of the symptom; the real of jouissance; and the real of the relations between the three fields of the subject, fields with which he has worked since the beginning of his teaching - the imaginary, the symbolic, and the real - but which this year he will elaborate via the topological structure of the Borromean knot. In contrast to his previous ways of speaking about these three fields, Lacan will from now speak of them as independent and autonomous consistencies. And although he will refer to the Borromean knot as an imaginary phenomenon when it is represented flattened out as a drawing on the blackboard, he is tireless in emphasising that the knotting itself, the way the three are linked together, is a real event - as real as the scratch on the skin that makes the child go boohoo ["ce noeud bo-bo... bo-bo... borromeen"] (Lesson of 10 December 1974, 12 [18]).

  • Volume 20 Notes on the analysis of perversions
    • Abstract: Rodriguez, Leonardo S
      'On a question preliminary to any possible treatment of perversion' is yet to be written. A good number of questions arise from the psychoanalytic experience with perverts: among other matters, the very condition of possibility of clinical psychoanalysis with a pervert, diagnostic questions, the handling of the transference, the status of knowledge and truth in perversions and the position of the psychoanalyst. What follows are some reflections on what I have learnt from my experience in the treatment of perverts which may contribute to the unwritten paper.

  • Volume 20 Perversion
    • Abstract: Leader, Darian
      In order to approach the question of perversion in Lacan's seminars and writings, we can start by contrasting three perspectives, corresponding roughly to a stress on the importance of the imaginary, the symbolic and the real. These perspectives more or less follow the chronological development of Lacan's thoughts on perversion, and we should note that from each of these angles the theory develops and changes. First of all, there is the place of the imaginary in perversion. Two references can help us to situate this: firstly from Lacan's work in the 1940s and early 1950s when he was exploring the predominance of the imago and the capturing effect of the image on the human subject. He connects different clinical structures - what he calls "the different forms of inversion of sexual and cultural normalisation" - with capture in the image. The key reference for this would be Ecrits where he says that his theory of narcissism will clarify the problems and the confusion of the theory of the so-called partial drives, and will allow an understanding of the apprehension of the other in perverse practices (2006 [1948], 98, 97).

  • Volume 20 On the object relation: Lacan and Bouvet
    • Abstract: Bernard, David
      In his questioning of neurosis and its different types (phobic, hysterical and obsessional), Lacan explicitly invited his students to return to the categories of demand and desire that he had differentiated. He did that from a theoretical point of view as well as from the perspective of their handling in analytic practice. As he states in his seminar on the formations of the unconscious, it is a question of making of demand and desire something 'usual' - of 'everyday usage'. (Lacan, 1998) Yet a definition of neurosis founded on the concepts of demand and desire has a political implication, something that concerns the aim and the direction of psychoanalytic treatment. In effect, let us bear in mind that among the psychoanalysts of the post-war period the register of demand had been the only register that counted. Lacan noticed this and criticized it: the dimension of desire must be added. Now, what lies between the two of them, demand and desire' A different conception of the object. During 1957 and 1958 Lacan conceptualized neurosis, its structure and its treatment, on the basis of an opposition that concerned the definition of the object in psychoanalysis.

  • Volume 20 Love, desire and jouissance in perversion
    • Abstract: Izcovich, Luis
      In this seminar we will study the current state of a clinical category, perversion. It is a category that was introduced by psychiatry and conceptualised in an unchanging way by Freud. The questions that will be addressed include: (1) What has become of perversion from the time of Lacan's teaching, and what consequences does this have for psychoanalytic practice' (2) Do analysts today make another use of perversion other than that which accords with a sexual norm or is ideological' (3) If Freud posited that the essence of perversion is given in fetishism, in what way is fetishism distinguished from masculine desire' (4) Lacan postulates "the polymorphous perversion of the male" in putting forward the notion of generalized perversion in the being who speaks. Does this imply that perversion in the analytic clinic disappears' On this same trajectory, another question insists: Does feminine perversion exist' More broadly, what is the effect of the family situation in the production of a perverse structure'

  • Volume 20 About nomination
    • Abstract: Nomine, Bernard
      For this Seminar of the School, I have chosen to talk about nomination. You know that the system of the pass stipulates that the cartel might appoint the passant as AS (Analyst of the School). And you probably know that this nomination process has been criticized in some other Lacanian groups. I think they are mistaken and don't understand what Lacan was intending with the pass. He wanted to build the structure of his School distinct from any necessity of the group.

  • Issue 19 - The real of the drive
    • Abstract: Faye, Esther
      In his seminar The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis (1981), Lacan presented the drive as the fourth of the four fundamental concepts of psychoanalysis, the concepts he considered essential to the analytic experience. Curiously, given the degree of attention Lacan had so far devoted to the question of desire, and would continue to devote as he worked on his particular contribution to an understanding of the transference as a function of the analyst's desire, he chose the concept of the drive over that of desire as one of psychoanalysis's fundamental concepts. Why he did so in fact highlights the particular significance of the drive's relation to desire: that desire is the very destiny of the drives, the destiny of the relation of the subject to the real that the drives mythify. In 'On Freud's Trieb and the Psychoanalyst's Desire', written in the same year, 1964, Lacan stated.

  • Issue 19 - The status of the case history in psychoanalysis
    • Abstract: Mackie, Belinda
      In psychoanalysis a case history is a report on an analysis, for either presentation or publication, where the analyst elaborates a written account based on what they have heard from their analysand, and on their own actions in the analysis. The aim is to reconstitute the sense and significance of the subject's psychic and symptomatic functioning, as well as the progressive unfolding of the treatment itself in the transference exchange. A case history concerns a particular and individual analytic experience, and as a historical reconstruction it is only possible from the perspective of the author of the history, the analyst, who brings his or her own conceptual framework to bear to it. It is, therefore, the history of an analysis that is written according to the analyst's view and ability to articulate it.

  • Issue 19 - A response based on evidence
    • Abstract: Rodriguez, Leonardo S
      For over twenty-five years the professionals working in the field of so-called mental health have been required by governments and academic authorities to conduct their practices according to a knowledge based on evidence. The study of evidence- based practices in the provision of health services has become a discipline in its own right, and considerable efforts have been made by professional bodies and institutions that administer public health (including the World Health Organization) to establish it as the model that must be followed. The debate concerning evidence in clinical practices is far from being purely academic. There are vested interests at stake: the allocation of funds is restricted to forms of treatment deemed to be grounded on scientific principles and evaluated according to the evidence-based model. Consequently, the opportunities for training and employment in mental health institutions depend on affiliation to the schools that favour such model. Until not so long ago in Australia and in other countries the public institutions in charge of mental health offered psychoanalytic treatment, even if it was only in a modest scale. Since our authorities have decided that psychoanalysis does not meet the requirements of the model, psychoanalytic clinical practice in public institutions has diminished almost to the point of extinction, in favour of practices that are presumed to be more efficient. As psychoanalysts, and as members of a school of psychoanalysis with social responsibilities, we need to address this situation.

      The relevance of an alternative epistemology: a first hypothesis This article aims to show the validity of an alternative epistemological approach to that of health psychology in understanding autism. Such an alternative approach has led us to conclusions which limitations of space oblige us to present in the form of heuristic hypotheses, and which we intend to develop further in future publications.

  • Issue 19 - The real of desire
    • Abstract: Schwartz, Susan
      I have chosen this title in order to explore Lacan's evolving conceptualisation of the desire of the analyst in the context of the development, in Seminar XI, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis, of the theory of the constitution of the subject. The desire of the analyst that Lacan will later call 'inedit', 'completely new', is a desire that is not a desire of the Other but rather, a desire in relation to the real. This definition of desire provides a focus that has profound implications for the praxis of psychoanalysis, specifically, in the way transference, interpretation and the end of analysis are conceived. The Lacanian subject, subject of the unconscious structured like a language, subject of desire, is constituted around a void, the object a, cause of desire, which is the real remainder of the process of signification. The object a is always there, moving beneath the analytic discourse, giving it its weight, a weight that must be measured in the course of the analysis (Lacan 1981, 155). That the limit to signification is established at the border of this void indicates that the desire of the analyst, a desire that is defined by the analyst's readiness to occupy the place of support, qua semblant, for the object a, necessarily pertains to the real (Lacan 1998, 95). In this paper I hope to open up some questions for discussion consequent upon the articulation of Lacan's conceptualisation of the subject with this very particular desire of the analyst and what it implies with regard to the aim of analysis. It certainly suggests that the real has to be taken into account, a real that can only be circumscribed as it is not decipherable. As Lacan says in the 1958 paper, 'The Direction of the Treatment', a dream can be deciphered but unconscious desire can only be grasped in interpretation (Lacan 2006 [1958], 521) - 'grasped' - that is, something of it can be circumscribed in signifiers. A mutation in the economy of the subject's desire requires an analytic act defined as such by its effect on the subject of a rewriting in the real. This is the stake of a Lacanian analysis.

  • Issue 19 - Variants of desire discerned by psychoanalysis
    • Abstract: Lombardi, Gabriel
      In this seminar we will focus on the importance and diversity of desire in the clinic and in the ethics of psychoanalysis. We will study the vicissitudes of the notion of desire from its inception (via Freud's discovery of the unconscious), to desire today - when the discourse of capitalism replaces traditional social links with new objects and heterotopies of Foucault. In this it is Lacan's teaching that provides the instruments to situate the status and dialectic of desire, where the speaking being finds both comfort and difficulty in moving essential desire into existence. This constitutes a contemporary divide which is clear in current symptoms.

    • Abstract: Izcovich, Luis
      In analytical practice, we meet subjects for whom the diagnosis is not clear. They do not present with the major phenomena of psychosis, nor symptoms typical of a neurosis, nor even the scenarios of fixed jouissance that would lead to the diagnosis of perversion. However, a series of phenomena, most notably a push towards action, can produce a question in the clinician with regard to the treatment.

  • Issue 18 - The clinic of the speaking body
    • Abstract: Schwartz, Susan
      The title of this paper contains the echo of the Meeting of the International of the Forums in Rome in 2010, The Mystery of the Speaking Body. In replacing the word 'mystery' with 'clinic' I'm drawing attention to something essential with regard to both practice and presence: the analyst's embodied response to the analysand in the setting of the consulting room. But I do not want to lose the sense of the mystery in the work we do. In the consulting room, the discourse of the analyst is the condition for crossing into the foreign terrain of the unconscious. Analysis is a practice of speaking and hearing that requires the presence of two bodies; I am arguing that it cannot be conducted effectively by phone or by Skype for there, the real effect of speech on the body is lost. The analysand's desire to explore the unconscious is evident at the level of speech but also in the act of coming to the session. A subject moves his body into the analytic space, actually and in his words. The living body is the body that enjoys, the body that brings with it the dimension of the unconscious Real.

  • Issue 18 - The action of the cartel on the real of the group
    • Abstract: Mackie, Belinda
      A cartel has many meanings beyond the dominant one of a business conglomerate or a consortium of independent business organisations formed to monopolise the market place by controlling production, pricing, and the distribution of goods and services. A cartel can also be classified as a group of factions or nations united in a common cause and as an official agreement between governments at war, especially one concerning the exchange of prisoners. Other discussions of the different historical resonances of the term are that the cartel in the sixteenth century designated a piece of card, on which would be written a text or a charter (Parker 2005, 3). The card would carry the coat of arms of a knight; as well it could be exchanged in a challenge to a dual. The contemporary meaning of cartel as an agreement between business partners covers over the significance of the cartel that concerns quarrelling and the necessity of continual disagreement.

      I want to return in this paper to a question that remained with me after our discussion at the ACP's Seminar on Formation in 2012, of 'La troisieme' [The Third], Lacan's Rome address of 1974. My question relates to the connection Lacan makes in that address between the Real of the third ring of the Borromean knot, which he names as the true Real, and the jouissance of life. In particular, I want to explore whether it is this Real of life that Lacan has in mind when he speaks of the symptom as coming from the Real. Is this Real from which the symptom emerges the Real that is radically outside the Symbolic, the Real that concerns, not the Language Unconscious, but the Real Unconscious, terms introduced by Colette Soler in her discussion of different moments in the teaching of Jacques Lacan (Soler 2009)' Or is it the Real intrinsic to the Symbolic, its limit point, the Real of 'there is no sexual relation', the non-relation that never stops not being written, the Real that therefore pertains to the Language Unconscious'

  • Issue 18 - Symptoms of transference
    • Abstract: Soler, Colette; Holland, John
      I now begin the new course of the College Clinique, and first of all I'm going to emphasise a rupture since psychoanalysis follows a regime of discontinuity. When I use the word 'psychoanalysis' I'm referring both to analytic treatment, the analytic movement of doctrinal elaboration and, on the other hand, to the petty histories of analytic communities. Someone who wanted to object to this affirmation of discontinuity could recall that the libido is elastic and plastic, and that the 'jouissance substance', as Lacan called it, suggests instead images of continuity, of flux. This, indeed, can also be said, it isn't false. But whatever may be said, it is the cut that in the field of the libido produces the differences in potential that animate the parl tre, differences without which the latter would not have even the semblance of life. The repetition of the cut does not produce an eternal return, or an eternal new beginning. Repetition produces difference. This is the fundamental thesis that Lacan came to, and according to it, paradoxically, only repetition produces something new. Our analysis of History - of our own history - often amuses me - when I notice the point to which this fundamental thesis has been forgotten, and that it is, nevertheless, repeated, without being applied. One hears it said of recent events: 'they're a repetition; it's always the same thing'. Our colleagues on the other side tell us that the crisis of 1998 reproduces that of 1980! Well it's either one or the other: either it's a repetition or it's always the same thing. With this thesis, Lacan connects, as you doubtless know, with Soren Kierkegaard's absolutely remarkable intuitions, which he cited very often, and which, moreover, I commented on during the year that I gave a course on repetition in the analytic experience. When it is the same thing, there is no repetition, in the analytic sense of the term; there is only the reiteration of boredom.

I have participated in two of these cartels, from 1986 to 1988 and then from 1990 to 1992, and twice as Secretary of the pass. Each time I wrote a text the following year: a personal text in 1989 entitled 'One by one' and a text written for the cartel in 1994 called 'Lessons of the pass' and published in the collected papers of the International Encounter of 1994. Thus this was just before and just after the first crisis.

We shall attempt to grasp the 'why' and the 'how' of the real unconscious, and more specifically, the clinical and practical consequences of Lacan's formulation for psychoanalysis.

  • Issue 16 - The letter in psychosomatic phenomena of psychotic subjects
    • Abstract: Diebold, Lionel; Pedinielli, Jean-Louis; Victoria, Grace; Arnoux, Louis
      Our clinical practice in both the psychiatric and surgical departments of a public hospital and our critique of the limits of biomedicine has led us to focus on psychosomatic phenomena (PSP). Following Patrick Valas (1989, 65) the term "phenomena" gives PSP their "enigmatic dimension". This enigmatic character evokes well, and invokes, the abutting of medical and psychological discourses, each of which presents PSP as shadowy, blurred domains. Encountering patients suffering from PSP, for which there is no medical answer, induces a strong feeling of powerlessness among physicians, which leads them to steer patients toward clinical psychologists. !e discourse of the medical practitioner does not have access to psychosomatic phenomena. But what answer can a clinical psychologist provide' This problematic leads us to posit a hypothesis: that the practising clinical psychologist's response has effects on PSP.

  • Issue 16 - The compositor of the farce of dustiny: Lacan reading, and
           being read by, Joyce
    • Abstract: Boucher, Geoff
      "We have learnt to see Joyce as Lacan's own symptom," writes Jean-Michel Rabate, "and as the sinthome par excellence" (2006, 26). This duality of Joyce as an unreadable text permeated with enjoyment and at the same time as an enigma that Lacan wants to decipher supplies the key to an understanding of Seminar XXIII. Lacan's addition to the triad of the Real, the Symbolic and the Imaginary of a fourth term, the Sigma (or sinthome) firms up his late shift from the speakingbeing (parletre, the Lacanian neologism that indicates the insertion of the human being into the signifying chain) to MAN (LOM, a Lacanian play on l'homme). Instead of the human being as inserted into the Symbolic Order, Seminar XXIII presents Joyce as inserting himself into language, tying the signifier to the body in a special, unique way. For Lacan, the sinthome is eccentric to the registers of the Real, Symbolic and Imaginary, yet it paradoxically links them when the Name-of- the-Father fails. The implication is carried in the concept of "nomination" that the Name-of-the-Father (or its structural equivalents, such as "Woman," "God" and "Joyce") makes language possible for the individual.

  • Issue 16 - Not a pure desire
    • Abstract: Schwartz, Susan
      In an attempt to explore the development of Lacan's notion of desire, and the desire of the analyst in particular, this paper will focus on his discussion of Antigone in Seminar VII, there Ethics of Psychoanalysis, and consider it in the light of some of Lacan's later works. I will be arguing that, beginning with Seminar VII, there is an articulation between ethics and the real in Lacan's work that ensures that his notion of the desire of the analyst is of singular significance. While Lacan's conceptualisation of the real and its relation to the symbolic and the imaginary develops throughout his work, I consider the real, as it is conceived in Seminar VII, can be correlated with the real in his later work. For Lacan, Sophocles's play, and the fate of its eponymous character, have both a metaphorical and a cautionary purpose. In the Ethics Lacan's attention is on the subject of the signifier and the ethics of desire - a desire that is precisely not for the impossible (Lacan 1992 [1959-60], 300). As a consequence, he makes clear that such an ethics is impossible without an orientation to the real (Soler 2010, 13). It is this that the tragedy of Antigone demonstrates.

  • Issue 16 - Toiling at the oars
    • Abstract: Mackie, Belinda
      According to Lacan in 1957, to say what can be done in the psychoanalytic treatment of psychosis would be to go beyond Freud and this would be out of the question because, he said, psychoanalysis had returned to a pre-Freudian stage. It was because of this that Lacan focused his desire on "restoring access to the experience Freud discovered" (Lacan 2004b, 211). He went on to say that to use Freud's technique outside the experience to which it was intended, that is, the treatment of psychosis, would be "as stupid as to toil at the oars when one's ship is stuck in the sand" (Lacan 2004b, 211). It is well known that Freud was also cautious about recommending the use the psychoanalytic method with psychotics saying that an alternate therapy was needed for them (Freud 1905c, 264). Psychotics were unable to work in the transference because they withdraw their "libido from people and things in the external world without replacing them by others in phantasy" (Freud 1914c, 74). !is was said to prevent the development of a working alliance within the analytic treatment making these patients inaccessible to the in and uence of psychoanalysis. But Freud had much more to say about this.

  • Issue 16 - Lacan's "Proposition of 9 October 1967"
    • Abstract: Foord, Kate
      The first question I would like to pose in this paper is how the pass, which Lacan argues in the "Proposition of 9 October 1967" can function as a guarantee for the School (Lacan 1995), might function for the analyst - not in the same way, as a guarantee, but rather as an orienting concept. Second, how the idea of the pass as an orienting concept might be related to the act of enunciation. Following from this is the question of whether the pass - in the sense of a testimony of the passage from analysand to analyst - is necessary in the formation of an analyst. Specifically, is the pass (as an orienting concept) necessary in the formation of the desire that is the analyst's enunciation'

    • Abstract: Izcovich, Luis
      In view of the theories that base the essence of the human being on the affects as indices of authenticity, Lacan supports their character, at the end of an analysis, in an unpredictable way. From then on, in addition to the debate about the place of affects for the human being, it is a matter of knowing if the experience of analysis allows an accommodation in the way in which a subject experiences affects, a way that would be of the order of a normalization. Or rather, can one postulate a singularity in the relation of a subject to his or her affects' These questions lead to another: do affects exist in a manner that might be unique to a subject who has made an analysis' What are the affects that permit the analyst to orient him or herself in the treatment' What is the place of the affects of the counter transference in the treatment' We will attempt to show what changes radically at the level of affects for someone who has made the choice of speaking to an analyst. In other words, how is the subject, affected by the unconscious, affected by the experience of analysis'

    • Abstract: Lombardi, Gabriel
      Psychoanalysis may be considered a treatment of the speaking body, which changes during the analytical process, in sensitivity, shape, symptom, satisfaction and wellbeing. These changes are not miraculous, but rather the body's reaction to the intervention of the analyst. The body is not only the organism, but also the interface between life and the signifier. The body is not only life, but the place where life reacts to language, and as a result, the only place of enjoyment for a living and speaking being.

  • Issue 15 - Collapsing Knowledge: Art Education and the Epistemology of
    • Abstract: Holmes, Lucille
      Both Freud and Lacan were keenly interested in the teaching of psychoanalysis and made specific reference to the place of psychoanalysis in the university. While the discipline of the visual arts has at times found psychoanalysis to be useful as one of its medley of applied theories, the fundamental discovery of the Freudian field - the subject of the unconscious - remains largely under-utilised and often misunderstood in visual arts pedagogies. On the basis of a psychoanalytic epistemology and with specific reference to Lacan's discourse theory, this paper proposes that the discipline of visual arts is in a problematic yet potentially subversive position from which to intervene in the relationships of power and knowledge within institutions such as the university. With reference to two artworks by student artists, and to a series of exhibitions focused on the proposition that the work of art occupies the place of the analyst, the paper discusses how the place of the analyst in Lacan's teaching has relevance for art education.

  • Issue 15 - The Logic and Topology of the Other Jouissance
    • Abstract: Israely, Yehuda
      For the first time in Seminar XX, Encore, Lacan attributes the logic of 'not all' and the topology of infinity within limits-'compactness' to the feminine Other jouissance. The purpose of this paper is to trace the logical and topological roots of this development throughout Lacan's teaching. Topologies reviewed include the Graph of Desire, the Moebius strip, the Torus and the Sphere equipped with a Cross-Cap. From Seminar XX to the later seminars, the ideas continue to develop, culminating in the subversion of Freud's 'psychic reality' in the Borromean knot. The value of this analysis is that it allows us to trace with the analysand the path from the symbolic envelope of the symptom as phallic, to the kernel of Real jouissance in sexuality, to the lack at the core of being.

      In this paper I examine Lacan's lifelong engagement with hysteria, from his inauspicious point of departure as a follower of Babinski to his later generalisation of the term as a form of social discourse. Lacan's early work with hysterics shows that he progressively incorporated the Freudian ideas until he reformulated them via his own philosophical concepts, above all with the help of Hegel and Kojeve. Finally, in the 1970s, his theoretical program aiming at describing discourses transforms hysteria into a powerful tool for the production of truth. Yet, in this very production, one can observe a return to Babinski's notion of 'simulation', except that this time it is a 'stimulation' of truth as indistinguishable from a fundamental lie that exposes its proton pseudos.

  • Issue 15 - Dreams in Child Analysis: Winnicott's Piggle and Dreams as
           Symptoms in a Lacanian Clinic
    • Abstract: Baldacchino, Jean-Paul
      Classically, psychoanalysis has never allowed much space for children's dreams to speak in the language of the unconscious. They have been treated as primitive residues incapable of analytical interpretation. Through an analysis of the role of dreams in the case of Gabrielle as presented by D.W. Winnicott, I aim to demonstrate that dreams, especially in the case of infants, could function symptomatically. Dreams could be symptomatic in two senses: first, as a cause for seeking analysis and second, and more importantly, because dreams could become the site of jouissance in the subject.

  • Issue 15 - The Trauma of Birth: A 'Parasite Myth' of Psychoanalysis
    • Abstract: Adam, Jacques
      The phrase 'parasite myth' by Jacques Lacan appears in his seminar the Psychoanalytic Act, lesson of May 13, 1968. Why the use of the word 'parasite'' Because it is not, like the Oedipal myth, a myth of the Freudian corpus, although, as a fixed syntagm, the expression 'trauma of birth' has experienced within psychoanalysis, and outside of it, a success that does not refute object relations theories, in particular the theory of the maternal object. Just as with the foetus parasite, the maternal womb, likewise the introduction of the trauma of birth by Otto Rank-with a special importance given to the mother-infant fusion-has parasitised, within the history of psychoanalysis, the Freudian knowledge on repression, on the Oedipus complex itself and also on the paternal function, to the point that Freud, at the end of his opus, comes back to the nature, and to the function of trauma (Moses and Monotheism) in the construction of the father's religion, but also in order to highlight the role of subjectivity all along.

  • Issue 15 - Sexuation from Mother to Child
    • Abstract: Williams, Megan
      It has been argued that the possible positions of a female subject in sexuation consist in two modes of phallic identification (receiving/having and being) and an Other, non-phallic jouissance. This paper seeks to explore, theoretically and with reference to two clinical cases, the ways in which the sexuation of a woman, where it includes being a mother, influences the sexuation of her child. Freud analysed the sexuality of women according to phallic signification: that of infantile sexuality organised by the Oedipus complex. His observation that in sexual love and desire women are more narcissistic and men more anaclitic (Freud, 1914, 88-91), corresponds to the differentiation Lacan indicates with his formulae of sexuation (Lacan, 1988 [1972-73], 64-89):

  • Issue 15 - Cynicism and Jouissance in Contemporary Symptoms
    • Abstract: Degril, Chantal
      For Lacan, the analyst cannot respond to individual symptoms if he does not know the symptom of the current epoch in which these symptoms take place. The subject speaks with its body, through the symptoms that appear in its body. The body is social from the beginning, because it is inhabited by language. Contemporary discourse has the effect of undoing human relations. This paper proposes to examine the ways in which the drive and the modes of jouissance operate in the contemporary social bond. If the unconscious drive has the grammar of an object relation, one could say it is also cynical, as it seeks its own satisfaction, regardless of the object and regardless to the Other. It is only through discourse that the drive becomes directed to the social bond (Lacan, 1979 [1964]). If contemporary discourse has the effect of creating a jouissance of sameness through its master signifiers, what becomes of the jouissance of the neurotic, who claims his difference to the Other via his singular symptom'

  • Issue 15 - Body Parts
    • Abstract: Rodriguez, Leonardo S
      The unconscious representatives of the drives partition the body in ways that compromise the integrity of the organism. The psychoanalytic experience is not the only one concerned with the impact of jouissance upon the soma; but it has brought some light and therapeutic possibilities, as well as many questions, on human conditions that constitute serious matters of public health - conversion symptoms, anxiety states, psychosomatic phenomena, eating disorders, addictions - and this, in addition to the bodily phenomena that appear in the psychopathological clinical structures.

  • Issue 15 - 'I Love You...I Mutilate You': The Capture of Flesh and the
           Word in 'Female Genital Mutilation' Law
    • Abstract: Rogers, Juliet
      We must see right away how crude it is to accept the idea that, in the ethical order itself, everything can be reduced to social constraint as if the fashion in which that constraint develops doesn't in itself raise a question... (Lacan, 1992 [1960], 225) We must see right away that the desire to institute social constraint, and the fashion in which this is initiated and legitimated, raises a question as to the desire of the advocate of such constraint. In the text that is female genital mutilation, any call to the institution of law betrays itself as not so self evident in its altruism, but raises a question as to the desire of the anti-female genital mutilation (fgm) advocate. In this article I discuss the fantasising that accompanies anti-female genital mutilation advocacy and the passions that inspire the calls to law. I argue that the aggressive fantasising of female genital mutilation as a 'barbaric' and 'sadistic' practice, and the accompanying refusal to engage with the commentary of women who are circumcised and with the research which counters much anti-fgm rhetoric, betrays a horror of castration in the 'non-mutilated' subject. This horror is played out in discussions of the animation of the flesh of the 'mutilated woman' and in a liberal politico-legal terrain in which the sovereign comes to function as an Other who can restore the lost fresh to the horrified advocate. Advocating for anti-fgm law in this light becomes an alignment with the sovereign's law and the sovereign's language; in this form such 'social constraint' functions as the salve to castration.

  • Issue 15 - 'Who Am I as a Sexual Being'': A Psychotic Attempt at the
           Hysterical Enigma
    • Abstract: Tamarin, Nestor; Tamarin, Daphne
      This paper presents clinical material that is used as a basis for discussion about paranoid diagnosis and structure, with symptoms that are reminiscent of the hysterical defence against sexuality. This paper deals with three concepts related to the patient's complaints: his object choice, his anxiety and the search for a solution, and with the particular place that the symptoms occupy in the different structures. This article does not deal with the differential diagnosis between hysteria and psychosis, but shows rather how these two structures express similarities because of being part of language, and differences related to the fact of psychosis being outside discourse. It remains undetermined whether it is possible, or not, for a non-mediated identification to stabilise a psychosis as it seems to be in this case.

  • Issue 15 - Perversion as Symptom: on Defining the Sexuality of the Other
    • Abstract: Nobus, Dany
      As a rule, perversion is associated with behaviours, acts and fantasies rather than symptoms. In Lacanian psychoanalysis, scholars and clinicians distinguish between 'perverse structure' and 'perverse trait', again to the detriment of the 'perverse symptom'. In this paper, it is demonstrated that neither Freud nor Lacan offered solid theoretical foundations for conceptualising perversion as a separate clinical structure and even less for identifying perverse traits. In the absence of these foundations, and without there being any evidence of a clinical reality that is radically different from neurosis and psychosis, the author argues that the diagnosis of perversion, whether as a structure or a trait, may very well constitute the symptomatic response of the psychoanalyst to the non-normative sexuality of the Other, designed to alleviate his own anxiety. In some clinical cases, the fantasy takes precedence over the symptom, yet should these situations warrant the clinician's recourse to the diagnosis of perversion, the latter merely constitutes the other side of neurosis, in which the symptom rules over the fantasy.

  • Issue 15 - 'A Solid Hatred Addressed to Being'
    • Abstract: Faye, Esther
      What is not remembered, Freud tells us, can often make its appearance in an acting-out, as the aggressive exhibiting, in Lacanian terms, of an object on the stage of reality. Taking up some ideas from the work of the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben, as well as from the Belgian psychoanalyst Serge Andre, I wish to argue that during the period heralded as the beginning of the 1000-Year Reich, 'the Jew' was lethally actualised for elimination as that object which was impossible to remember-to become the hated ex-timate object of Nazi sacrifice.

    • Abstract: McCormick, Gregory
      The middle voice in classical Greek and Sanskrit precedes the division into active and passive; in some modern European languages (French, German and Spanish, for example) the middle voice can just be heard in the reflexive function. In earlier Sanskrit the middle voice speaks in the sphere of the subject; here it can be reflexive, or it can speak non-reflexively of an action in the action. The non-reflexive value of the middle voice is not expressible in a present indicative mood. It does not suggest predication or subjective intervention in the formation of its movement.

  • Issue 14 - A Report on 'Ordinary Psychosis: Paris English Seminar'
    • Abstract: Schwartz, Susan
      A report on a seminar organized by the Institute of the Freudian Field and the Department of Psychoanalysis of the University of Paris VIII, in collaboration with the University of Paris VIII, July 7-12, 2008. In distinction from 'extraordinary psychosis' exemplified by Schreber and his grand delusion, Jacques-Alain Miller developed the category of psychosis as ordinary, indeed, as banal. The precise characteristics of ordinary psychosis were the focus of discussion during the six days of the seminar; the presentations were anything but banal. In this review I will outline key points of theory made by Marie-Helene Brousse, Jacques-Alain Miller and Eric Laurent, and will make some references to other speakers, but in doing so I will not be able to convey the breadth of the seminar which included papers on theory by Russell Grigg and Pierre Skriabine, culture by Pierre-Gilles Gueguen, Maire Jaanus and Veronique Voruz and discussions of Lacanian practice in Europe and the English-speaking world. Among the many very interesting clinical papers, I found those by Gil Caroz, Franck Rollier, Alexandre Stevens and Tom Svolos particularly useful. Each speaker discussed the treatment in Borromean terms of a knotting situated in the register in which the break occurred. Skriabine used the example of Joyce and his writing to demonstrate how the symptom comes to repair the error in the symbolic register.

  • Issue 14 - A Baby That Does Not Exist
    • Abstract: Vanier, Catherine
      Contrary to some statements by Winnicott which suggest that premature babies feel nothing vital until the time when they were supposed to have been born, the author here makes a case, on the basis of her reading of Winnicott and her own experience in neonatal intensive care units, for the existence of such feelings and of strong memory-traces of their experiences. In the light of which, the author argues for the need to base the treatment of premature babies on Winnicott's notion of the 'mother/child couple', where it is the mother's responses to the baby which are essential in allowing it to 'fabricate' itself as a baby. The direction of the treatment proposed by the author is thus away from simple medical care and toward helping the mother, paradoxically, to mourn and separate from the baby. Only then will the baby and its birth have the possibility of becoming not 'real' to the mother, but rather phallicised and as having symbolic existence.

    • Abstract: Turcanu, Radu
      This paper compares the theoretical notions developed by Winnicott and Lacan of, respectively, the false self and the semblant. It proposes parallels between the false self and a subjective position outside discourse. The latter, it is suggested, gives rise to a false semblant which shares many characteristics of the false self, including having its place in the social world mediated by 'mentality' rather than by a social link produced by discourse. Two clinical cases are described to illustrate the theory.

  • Issue 14 - Phallus Dei, or the Sexual Religion of the Obsessional Fantasy
    • Abstract: Nobus, Dany
      The theoretical malaise surrounding the psychoanalytic understanding of obsessional neurosis is due primarily, in this author's view, to the fact that from Freud onward, to whom the specificity of this diagnostic category has to be credited, the focus on obsessional symptoms and defence mechanisms has obscured the true significance and central function of the obsessional fantasy in obsessional neurosis. The author here proposes that psychoanalytic understanding of the psychical economy of the obsessional can only advance by not only singling out the obsessional fantasy as an object of study in its own right, but also by demonstrating how the fantasy is the very cornerstone, the 'structural invariant' Freud referred to in his studies on obsessional neurosis, of this clinical category; its central organising principle. The author then proceeds to substantiate his argument through a deciphering of the obsessional fantasy in the light of Lacan's theoretical interventions in the clinic of the obsessional neurotic.

    • Abstract: Sauret, Marie-Jean; Macary-Garipuy, Pascale; Holland, John
      The number of depressed people has been increasing regularly. This increase is clearly aggravated by psycho-pharmacological factors. Psychoanalysts have encountered difficulties with a new type of patient for whom neurotic solutions do not work. For this reason, a new evaluation of the psycho-conception of the subject, melancholy and distress, and the social link is needed: this new evaluation allows us to define the nature of the relation between depression and society, and to plan a more effective clinical response.
