SEMINAR: On the Subject’s Relation to Knowledge, III Paola Mieli Friday, February 21, 2020 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm The School of Visual Arts 136 West 21st Street, New York, NY
Returning to Freud and Lacan, this seminar will reflect on the function that knowledge and belief play in the subject’s relation to the world.. Denial, disavowal, foreclusion—and their subjective and collective implications—will be explored, as well as the differences between unconscious and conscious knowledge, between savoir, connaissance and savoir faire.
Readings for February 21st: S. Freud, Hysterical Phantasies and their Relation to Bisexuality (1908); A Child has being Beaten (1919); The Economic Problem of Masochism (1924); J. Lacan, Seminar VI, Chapter XXIV (June 10th, 1959).
