on Saturday 28th April between 10am and 1pm. Please do join us.

Further information about the Lacanian Works working group: LW cartel: Jouissance & symbolic (dis)order

The focus of our cartel work 

is Eric Laurent’s article: ‘The Symbolic Order in the XXI Century: Consequences for the Treatment’. This text, given in July 2010, leads to the  VIII Congress of the World Association of Psychoanalysis: (WAP Congress) : “The Symbolic Order in the 21st Century”  in April 2012.

Location:

Flat D, 38 Eardley Crescent, London, SW5 9JZ  [Earl’s Court tube station: Warwick Road exit]

2)  Translation Cartel

In Pierre Skriabine’s text, Drive and Fantasy – see below for web-links to references, the text ‘De la psychanalyse dans ses rapports avec la réalité: December 18th 1967′ (see below) is given as a reference. I have been unable to find an English translation.

Therefore, I propose to set up a translation group…. As translation is not an area within which I feel comfortable, to put it mildly, I will need help…  The good news is that it is only about 6 pages long.

Below, please find a web-link to the text in French.  Working method will evolve and will be via Skype and e-mail.

The aim is definitely not for perfection.  It is to produce a good-enough document to be posted on LacanianWorks.

If you would like to be a part of this new venture, please contact.

Thank you
