Starting with his paper “L’étourdit” (1973), Lacan draws a connection between the subject’s position in sexuation and Freud’s structures of the symptom. This connection becomes the basis for differentiating three sexualized positions, independent of anatomy: the “hetero-,” the “hysterical,” and the “paranoiac,” all three determined by their relation to “woman.” This workshop will explore the particularities of these positions in relation to Lacan’s construction of the formulas of sexuation.
