Invitation to Lacan | Learning Module
This learning module introduces the work of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, private physician of Picasso, friend of the Symbolists, Enfant Terrible of the International Psychoanalytic Association, and superstar of the Parisian intellectual scene.
Considered to be very difficult, these lectures will provide a systematic overview over his life and most important concepts (the mirror stage, the registers of the Symbolic, Imaginary and Real, the diagnostic categories, the fundamental fantasy etc.).
No previous knowledge of Lacan's work is required for attendance. The lectures will address both theoretical and clinical aspects of Lacan.
Facilitated by Kai Hammermeister.
Dates: Tuesdays 16th, 23rd & 30th May and 6th June
