The Late Lacan: Wild Analysis: The Discourse of the President
Mon, March 27, 2017, 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM EDT
While our last seminar on “The Politics of the Analyst” focused on the micro-politics of direct action and utopian transformation, this session will focus on recent shocking transformations in macro-politics - including the election of the president of the US and the popular vote on the British exit from the European Community. Through Lacan’s groundbreaking work on discourse theory and analysis in extension we can understand these socio-political events in new light and approach a politics of the future. The first book to be written on the Trump election is by a Lacanian psychoanalyst. Join us as special guests discuss with Dr Scott Von a unique approach to recent political events from a psychoanalytic perspective.
