It is only by pushing the impossible into its last defenses that impotence takes the power to make the patient turn into the agent. [1] Jacques Lacan     When sanitary measures forced us to set up "home offices" I had no doubts about the fidelity this type of practice had with regards to our ethics; [...]

Art#COVID19: a liquid element?

By | June 5th, 2020|COVID-19 / 2020 #109|

Breathtaking! At the time of deconfinement in France, the question of art’s place, in our postmodernity, arises. Since the sanitary lockdown, galleries, museums are closed, festivals and concerts are canceled. Artists one-by-one are deprived of the bodies’ stimuli mainly in the presence of humanized gaze on their artwork. Facing this very traumatic event, professionals[i] from [...]

“For me the only true, serious science  worth following is science fiction” [i]   During the lockdown, with the images of deserted cities, the anonymity of doctors and nurses behind their masks, the possibility – at least in Israel – to track people’s movements and location via their smartphones, you could often hear people saying [...]

What Is It That Interprets in Psychoanalysis?

By | May 30th, 2020|LRO 228|

For an analytic session, there is no criterion for success or accuracy: one can only say that it took place.

  In difficult circumstances such as our current one, the unconscious, which does not know viruses or time, persists and insists. What to do with one’s analysis, when “virtual” analysis doesn’t cut the mustard? The text of a dream: I look down and on my feet are a pair of green boots, on the right [...]

What remains to be said: on floundering, ignorance and mourning

By | May 27th, 2020|COVID-19 / 2020 #103|

As I look through the window and see people on balconies clapping, someone sees me and appears invigorated to clap even more. He and others keep clapping in the choir that transcends countries and continents. Freud found the drive indestructible. That’s what humanity is today: indestructible as we are all in it together.
