Event description

Description

You are invited to attend our next Study Day on March 24th from 10am to 2pm at Murdoch University.

Dr Jonathan Redmond will continue to present on Jacque-Alain Miller’s idea of ordinary psychosis focusing on the two-fold phenomena of triggering and compensatory mechanisms in psychosis. He will discuss the Lacanian concept of foreclosure demonstrating how both triggering and compensatory mechanisms are a response to a disturbance to the subject’s sense of life characterised by impossibility in symbolising subjective experience.

Leonard Martin will briefly outline the theory of jouissance in psychoanalysis exploring how Lacan makes use of the classical Freudian model of castration, the complicated relations between pleasure, unpleasure and the drives to arrive at his notion of jouissance as a dialectic of desire. Please refer to the reference article called What Does Lacan Say About…Jouissance? by Owen Hewitson, available at LacanOnline.com, for prior reading.

One hour is allotted for each presentation with time allocated for questions and discussion. After lunch, we will have a collective reading on the "Wolf Man" case i.e. Freud, S. (1918). An infantile neurosis and other works. In J. Strachey (Ed. and Trans.), The standard edition of the complete psychological works of Sigmund Freud (Vol XVII, pp. 7-124). London, UK: Hogarth Press, 1957. Wolf Man. This text has been selected due to its relevance to the field of ordinary psychosis.
