The Other is Missing [The Other lacks] : 15th January 1980 : Jacques Lacan

by Julia Evans on January 15, 1980

Jacques Lacan describes this as ‘my seminar of the 15th January’.

The text of this seminar appeared in Le Monde of 26th January 1980, preceded by a letter dated  24th January 1980.

Translation note :

L’Autre manque may also be translated as ‘The Other lacks’ which seems to me to be a better translation. The other option would be The missing Other’
