Kazimir Malevich, Female Torso, 1928-9

SEMINAR: On Voluntary Servitude   Paola Mieli   Saturday, January 30th, 2021 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM (EST)
In times like these, as new forms of totalitarianism are taking over everywhere, it’s necessary to reflect on humans’ inherent propensity to take joy in their own servitude. Returning to Freud’s and Lacan’s articulations of the subject of language and the social link, and that subject’s passion for ignorance, the seminar will explore the nature of the drive, masochism, and the ways the superego dictates the law one abides by. Psychoanalytic ethics can open a breach out of subjective servitude.
Suggested readings for January 30: Etienne de la Boétie (1530-1563), The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude; S. Freud, On Narcissism: An Introduction (1914); S. Freud, “The Libido Theory” in Two Encyclopaedia Articles (1922).

Paola Mieli is a psychoanalyst practicing in New York City. She is the president of Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association (New York), a member of Le Cercle Freudien (Paris), of Espace Analytique (Paris), and of the section of Psychoanalysis in Psychiatry of the World Psychiatry Association (WPA). She is the author of numerous essays on psychoanalysis and on culture.
