Different aspects of contemporaneous matters…..

by Julia Evans on August 18, 2011

Hello,

I bring three posts on www.lacanianworks.net to your attention:

Bruno de Florence writing on the ‘Hacker’ Quote: I have commented on particular excerpts of the interview with respect to the issue of the symbolic order in the 21st century. This is followed by a more general series of comments on the prevalent use of the Internet as a mode of relationship.

– Julia Evans: ‘An explanation of Jacques Lacan’s use of cartels in organisational structure’.  The way in which to unstick the glue of organisations without the use of a Super-person to rescue. This was written in 1997 and the references have been updated and to whom the final paragraph’s questions are addressed.

– Details of the LW cartel: LW cartel: Jouissance & symbolic (dis)order who are working on Eric Laurent’s text: ‘The Symbolic Order in the XXIst Century: Consequences for the Treatment’. This text is strongly recommended.  This cartel welcomes contributions from others – either written or joining with out discussions.

The hacker

by Bruno de Florence on August 17, 2011

As part of a recent cartel session on the symbolic order in the 21st century, I did a presentation commenting on the case of a hacker as portrayed in a press interview.
In this written transcription, I have commented on particular excerpts of the interview with respect to the issue of the symbolic order in the 21st century. This is followed by a more general series of comments on the prevalent use of the Internet as a mode of relationship.

An explanation of Jacques Lacan’s use of cartels in organisational structure

by Julia Evans on November 1, 1997

November 1997[i]

Jacques Lacan was a French psychoanalyst who was excluded from the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA) in the 1950s and founded his own School – L’École Freudianne (‘Acte de Fondation[ii]’ and ‘Proposition[iii]’).  In chapter 11 ‘Summary and recent developments’ of ‘The works of Jacques Lacan[iv]’ by Bice Benvenuto and Roger Kennedy is an historical account of the various splits and their brief biography of Lacan is in Appendix 1. The cartel was an integral part of the Cause Freudienne which Lacan founded in 1980. I believe the issues he faced and his way of ‘working through’ provide guidelines which can be used elsewhere. His writings in ‘Seminar XVII: L’envers de la psychanalyse[v]are directly relevant to organisations.
