Why are we here? A lacanian view on the film ‘Arrival’

By | January 15th, 2017|LRO 64|

EnregistrerThe Real is not simply opposed to the Imaginary, but is also located beyond the Symbolic, Lacan will assert. Unlike the Symbolic that is constituted in terms of oppositions such as that between presence and absence, implying the permanent possibility that something maybe missing from this domain, the Real is always in its place. It [...]

The Trumpet that Tweets

By | January 8th, 2017|LRO 61|

These end time auguries flourish in the era of Facebook, Instagram, clickbaits, listicles, hearts and hash-tags. Fraudulent news spreads like wildfire via our false objects. Engage your gizmo and see yourself reflected in it. Fixions, not facts. “As one of [Trump’s] surrogates said recently, ‘There’s no such thing, unfortunately, anymore, of facts.’”[1]. What Trump’s ascendancy [...]

Wearing the Veil!

By | December 11th, 2016|LRO 58|

Can wearing the veil be broached only from the point of view of the duality of the all-powerful man and the submissive and demeaned woman?1 Who can decide whether veiling a woman’s body is to prevent someone looking at it, desiring it, or if it is to neutralize this gaze, the one that in return [...]

Many instances of racial discrimination were happening in the States, I will describe just a few. At the University of Pennsylvania, the names of [...]

David and Goliath in Ljubliana

By | November 20th, 2016|LRO 55|

Psychoanalysis is more than necessary in Slovenia. It is a country, where families by tradition include failed fathers, so that mothers have to take up an authoritative stance. Furthermore, Slovenes are second in the world, right after Russians, in the consumption of alcohol per capita, especially among students, while suicide rates –especially teenage and old [...]

The Day After

By | November 11th, 2016|LRO 54|

Our president elect spoke repeatedly of dreams in his victory address. It was an insane dream I had refused to believe. The perverse will of jouissance was enough for one man to inflate fantasy into real numbers. During his campaign, I recognized the mechanism of disavowal at work. Donald Trump managed to build a populist [...]

Distancing death

By | November 6th, 2016|LRO 53|

The introduction of combat drones in military operations has revolutionised the art of warfare and made it possible to kill enemies from a distance. The drone is well suited to make us grasp the imaginary empowerment of the visionary organ, the eye detached from the body, which moves about on its own and looks at [...]
