FOUNDATIONS OF PSYCHOANALYSIS Speech, Signifier, Letter Alain Vanier Saturday, May 30, 2020 10:00 am – 1:00 pm To register, click here.
We will study the difference between signifier and letter without overlooking the sign, a notion Lacan rethought at various points of his teaching. Particular attention will be paid to their relation to the act of speech and the subject of language.
Suggested readings: Lacan: Écrits: “The Freudian Thing” (1955), “The Instance of the Letter in the Unconscious” (1957); Autres écrits: “Lituraterre” (1971).
Alain Vanier is a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist in Paris, emeritus professor of Université Paris 7 Diderot, a faculty member of Après-Coup, and the author, in English translation, of the monograph Lacan (Other Press, 2000).
