The CLA in conjunction with the NZ Forum will be running this year a training in Psychoanalysis within the Lacanian field. This year training will be based on the book 

Key Concepts of Lacanian Psychoanalysis

(Dany Nobus, editor)

In Key Concepts of Lacanian Psychoanalysis, "eight crucial Lacanian ideas are explored through detailed exploration of the theoretical and/or practical context in which Lacan introduced them, the way in which they developed throughout his works, and the questions they were designed to answer".

The CLA - NZ Forum is pleased to announce its 2016 Conference, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the foundation of the Centre for Lacanian Analysis.

 

Theme:                        Lacanian Psychoanalysis in the 21st Century

                              Psychoanalysis, New Technologies and Social media

 

Date:                            Friday 18th , Saturday 19th November 2016

Venue:                         WG609 AUT City Campus

 

 In an unpublished article written for the French newspaper Le Monde soon after the events of May 1968, Jacques Lacan noted that the abundance of objects offered to us does “not fill up the fateful object a”, identifying the difficulty that capitalism poses to the subject and to psychoanalysis as such. Years later in The Milan Lecture, On the Psychoanalytic Discourse (1972), Lacan calls the capitalist Discourse the “cleverest discourse” ever devised by humans; “wildly clever, but headed for a blowout … it runs too fast, it consumes, it consumes so well that it consumes itself …” This writing was preceded, four months earlier, in one of a series of lectures given to the interns of the Hôpital de Sainte-Anne, under the collective title The Knowledge of the Psychoanalyst, by a characterization of this discourse: “What distinguishes the discourse of capitalism is the Verwerfung, the rejection, the throwing outside all the symbolic fields…of what? Of castration.”
