Not perverts but bureaucrats will set things off

By | March 2nd, 2022|LRO 331|

An uncanny feeling takes hold, while reading the first pages of lesson 18 of Lacan’s Ethics Seminar [1], entitled “The function of the beautiful”. Am I in a time warp? Is this about today, the 24th of February 2022? How is this possible? Lacan asks: “Have we crossed the line […] in what is happening [...]

Conspiracism and Psychoanalysis: The Side of Meaning and the Side of Cause

By | February 23rd, 2022|LRO 330|

Lacan asserted that “belief [foi] is the deepest mode of the relationship of man to reality,” that is, explains Jacques-Alain Miller, “to the signifier.”[1] This fundamental yes, this Bejahung, is essential for psychoanalysis to exist, says Miller, but also for our relationship to science as such. What it takes for scientific thought to exist is [...]

Hate in the Time of Coronavirus*

By | February 9th, 2022|LRO 328|

If Gabriel García Márquez addresses love in the time of cholera, could there also be hate in the time of coronavirus? With coronavirus, hate also arrives. A hate that is born of fear. A hatred in our relationship to others who have become dangerous for us; a hatred in our relationship to the State and [...]

By | January 26th, 2022|LRO 326|

Demonic possession can be considered by some, as well as the religious response to it - to purge the body of the devil that occupies it - as a phenomenon of archaic belief, depending on a certain historical soil, rather tinged with obscurantism. Today, however, there is a clear increase in the number of cases[1] [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
