Note : this was probably presented in Rome on 16th July 2006 as it includes the following quote (See below for access to the Leguil text) :

The anxiety which must be done without is – as François Leguil showed us in the first presentation – the development of anxiety, its Entwicklung, its half- baked muddle by which the subject is held captive and which inhibits the act. That anxiety is certainty refused, anticipation and refusal of the certainty which the act would produce.
