Towards Ghent 2014: The topic based in Seminar VI

by Julia Evans on June 3, 2013

The announcement of next year’s NLS congress:

Dominique Holvoet, President of the New Lacanian School writes:

Jacques-Alain Miller took the floor to give impetus to the next Congress under the title: the Other without Other. Based on the imminent publication of Book VI of The Seminar of Jacques Lacan “Desire and its interpretation”, he revealed, before a captivated audience, the great secret of psychoanalysis, opening multiple pathways for our next Congress in Ghent on 17th and 18th May 2014.

From a message circulated on 22nd May 2013 on nls-messager: ‘NLS Congress: The great secret of psychoanalysis unveiled in Athens’
