 “The desire for quick answers has more to do with consumerism than with therapy” — Éric Laurent


In Seminar XVII, The Other Side of Psychoanalysis, Lacan introduces the theory of the four discourses; Master, University, Hysteric and Analyst, each of these discourses representing the structure of the social bond. The following year, in Seminar XVIII and in the “Milan Discourse”, Lacan hinted that there might be a fifth discourse, the discourse of Capitalism, which seems to have created a new psychology to meet its own needs. This presentation is aimed at discussing Lacan's theory of the discourses and to articulate the consequences of the dominant discourse within the Psy field in New Zealand.
