Practice Among Many – A Dam for Jouissance (1)

By | April 17th, 2021|LRO 288|

In relation to the psychotic subject, practice among many (La pratique à plusieurs) may initiate three effects (2, 3). First, generate a division, as the one we speak of when we speak of the divided subject. Second, create a knot, in the sinthomatic sense. And third, the topic of the current text, construct a threshold, [...]

Transference of Work is the Orientation

By | April 14th, 2021|LRO 287|

I start with an observation in order to formulate a hypothesis: there is a red thread running from end to end through a series of texts, courses and interventions by Jacques-Alain Miller, a thread that can be traced from at least 1982, with Clinic Under Transference, up to May 2017 with Freudian Field Year Zero [...]

Preface to Jacques-Alain Miller’s Book “Political Controversy”

By | April 10th, 2021|LRO 286|

The texts collected in this volume stem from the period of time between the beginning of March and the end of June 2017. These were four vertiginous months that started with what Jacques-Alain Miller described as his "moment of seeing": the possibility of a victory in the French presidential elections - which were to be [...]

By | April 7th, 2021|LRO 285|

The Aims of Analysis: Miami Seminar on the Late Lacan, a book by Thomas Svolos published by Midden Press, represents a doubly auspicious moment: the Lacanian Compass, in the US, has its own publishing house, and this book is the first to be published there, in 2020.

Is This Us? From the Event to the Consent

By | April 3rd, 2021|LRO 284|

This Is Us is a fictional television series that portrays the life of a middle class family in the United States. Its title evokes a misunderstanding that is itself a particular reflection on contemporary American family life. Far removed from past ideals of familial structure, the narrative focuses instead on flaws, secrets, bereavements, and conflict. [...]

It Fails: A Lacanian Antibody

By | March 31st, 2021|LRO 283|

“There are only different ways to fail, some of which are more satisfying than others. We are not simply having a laugh here, it’s not just a Witz. It is the condition for holding one’s own in the discourse of hypermodern civilization.” Jacques-Alain Miller, “A Fantasy” [1] Even in times when things are going seriously [...]

Between My Life and Neo-Feminism

By | March 27th, 2021|LRO 282|

For those who question the feminine, the history of feminism is an inescapable teaching, both clinical and political. By publishing online the text of Annie Le Brun’s memorable intervention in the TV show “Apostrophes”, Lacan Quotidien1 fortunately reminded us that her essay Lâchez tout marks an indisputable moment in the history of feminism. There is [...]

Masculinism: A Movement Without the Phallus

By | March 21st, 2021|LRO, LRO 280|

My interest in writing about the feminine, or more specifically about the feminization of the world, resides paradoxically on the masculine. We have observed a contemporary trend spreading worldwide centered on masculinity: men attempting to meet what they imagine to be the aspects of the masculine, something that could somehow guarantee them the position of [...]
