Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association presents
The Frenzy of the Fathers
Saturday, November 9, 2013
10:30 am – 2:00 pm
The School of Visual Arts
136 West 21st Street, Room 408, New York, NY
Rather than deploring the “end of the paternal myth,” Lacan replaces the signifier of the Name-of-the-Father with saying (le dire). This substitution brings with it new access to the “dark continent” of femininity. What effect does this have on the relation between men and women, and between sex and love?
Suggested Readings: Lacan, Autres écrits, “L’étourdit” (1973). Rabant, La frénésie des pères (Paris: Éditions Hermann, 2012).
Claude Rabant is a psychoanalyst practicing in Paris, and a former member of the École Freudienne de Paris. He is the author of numerous articles on psychoanalysis and culture; his books include Délire et théorie, Clins, Inventer le Réel, Métamorphoses de la mélancolie, and the recent La frénésie des pères.
Attendance fee: $50. For students with ID: $20.
Attendance is free for all members of Après-Coup as well as for the faculty and students of the School of Visual Arts.
