Black Holes’ Singularity

By | January 19th, 2022|LRO 325|

The Lacanian Review (TLR) offered us two fascinating interviews with internationally renowned researchers; the question of black holes was discussed[1]. Recently there was also an interview with a mathematician about singularities in mathematics[2]. I propose here to consider these two terms together: the singularity in black holes. We will see if there are any resonances [...]

History and the Link of the Analytic Act with Civilization

By | January 12th, 2022|LRO 324|

The axis of work of the Tenth Study Days of the Escola Brasileira de Psicanálise on “The Analytic Act and Civilization” at once raises the question about the relationship of our work as analysts with the civilization in which we work.[1] Lacan, of course, made use of topology for a unique way to approach the [...]

The Distant Proximity of a Close-up

By | December 15th, 2021|LRO 323|

My first online session was indeed an analytic experience. Even though I consider myself very literate in all kinds of media, I was somehow skeptical about a virtual psychoanalytical session. I’ve been using technology since I was a young child, thanks to my mother, who studied Computer Science in the 1970s. Computer as a communication [...]

From Kierkegaard to Lacan: Repetition?

By | December 1st, 2021|LRO 321|

Kierkegaard, who, according to Lacan, was “the most acute of the questioners of the soul”[1] before Freud, was beset, as he himself testifies, by a problem: “whether repetition is possible, and what it means, whether a thing wins or loses by being repeated”[2]. He says that he is “almost paralyzed” in the face of this question; in order to [...]

Decency

By | November 17th, 2021|LRO 319|

Some politicians wear a larva of decency. There are always moments of exposure (Entlarvung) where something behind the larva comes out. These moments are often very comical (komisch) and of course revealing for the political observer, they have to be captured somehow, otherwise the two-facedness of un-decent again blurs behind the algorithm of the political [...]

It Takes Time

By | November 10th, 2021|LRO 318|

Acceptance/rejection: this pair of polar terms describes the dominant way of dealing with the otherness of jouissance in public discourse, to locate it somewhere. However, if we look closely at the way acceptance and rejection function in time—both in the public rhetoric and in the course of personal psychoanalysis—we can recognize the somersaults people do [...]

Roman Vishniac’s Symptom: A Fish Outside Meaning

By | November 3rd, 2021|LRO 317|

In a recently published book, in Hebrew, called Criss Cross - Psychoanalysis, Art and Culture [1], one chapter, written by Rony Alfandary and titled Vishniac the Lone Photograph, was devoted to the Russian-American photographer Roman Vishniac (Wischniak, 1990-1887) [2, 3]. The author highlights and interprets the sharp shift Vishniac had made from photographing human figures [...]
