Four threads nodes, a sinthome

Topologies of the object a

“I shoot 7 on a single strike” It is through this signifier that the tale of the Valiant Little Tailor of Grimm opens. We illustrate how a signifier is the bearer of a special power. What can be induced for each signifier?

Topologies of the object a

Among the topological considerations of the object a, We focus today on its nodal approaches. The number of consistencies (number of rounds of string) determines the structure.

  • One consistency: the knot of the paranoid
  • Two consistencies: the knot of the fantasy
  • Three consistencies: the knot of neurosis
  • Three unwound consistencies: schizophrenia
  • Four consistencies: the knot of the sinthome

Once a month, there is a workshop on Lacanian topological clinic.

The sessions of the workshop of topology without YouTube, the site of Lutetium

#01 Syntax

Syntactic structure

Syntax does not lie.

#02 Lapsus

Relationship signified meaning in the slip

The bar is a Moebius Strip

#03 Demand & Desire #1

Articulation and mismatch between demand and desire; The graph

“Do not ask your way to someone who knows it, you might not to be lost.”

#04 Demand & Desire #2

Articulation and mismatch between demand and desire; An embrace

“I demand you to reject what I am offering to you, because it is not that”

#05 Topology of the drive

How do unite and separate subject and desire

The libido is just like bubble gum

#06 Real, Symbolic, Imaginary

The three dimensions of speech

These dimensions are also dits-mansions where the object comes to nest

#07 Anguish, Inhibition, Symptom

The path from anguish to symptom

How do coexist symptom and its secondary benefit

#08 The Sinthome

The Sinthome

The construction of the sublimation by the sinthome

#09 The Transference

Transference during, and at the waning of analysis

A sequel to the sinthome by Gérard Crovisier and a disappointing record on transference and the desire of the analyst

#10 The pass

Pass or Passes?

The Pass is not limited to an institutional procedure, with the participation of Fanny Jeandel

#11 Intension, extension

Psychoanalysis, pass, in intension, in extension

The pass in intension or in extension, psychoanalysis in intension or in extension, What is it when Lacan uses these terms? It seems that he uses these qualifications in a quite remote sense than the one they have in logics

#12 Projective plane

The projective plane

The projective plane has been used extensively by Jacques Lacan, most often in its cross-cap presentation. What is a projective plane? Is the cross-cap the most relevant way to account for the human psyche?

On the railroad tracks:
— the discourse of the master says: “the railroad tracks are parallel”
— the discourse of the hysterical says: “I see tracks are converging toward a common point”
— the discourse of the university says: “the tracks are parallel and converge in a projective point”
— the discourse of the analyst says: “the subject is structured as a projective space”

#13 Object of Reality, Object of Desire

From an object of reality to an object of desire

What is the proximity between the objects that our senses perceive and the conscience that we have on them? If it is very minute, then part of our objects of desire is hallucinatory.

#14 Reality, hallucination in psychosis

Reality & hallucination in psychosis

The transformation of an object of reality in object of desire is substantially transformed when a fundamental signifier is foreclosed. The object of reality is then transformed into hallucination.

#15 Phallus

The phallus object and the one who possesses it

The phallus, such a different object than the penis, has among its specificity, to be able to be owned by only one at a time. What does it give to the possessing one and to the one it is lacking?

#16 Degrees of liberty

Degrees of liberty in the acts of the subject

We talk about choice and free will; J. Lacan showed, by mathematical examples that the present choices are constrained by the past of the subject. This session will continue in the workshop #17, more specifically focused on the repetition automatism

#17 Repetitions

Machines and automatism of repetition

What in the repetition automatism is a special form of automaton? This is an attempt to answer, (but not very satisfying for my taste). An example is given from a piece from the album “Musique Mécanique” of Carla Bley.

#18 Sinthome, sexual intercourse and Joyce

Sinthome and sexual intercourse at Joyce

The sinthome, this way of sublimation described by Lacan, takes a specific form in James Joyce. It crystallizes in a unusual relationship to the other sex, a form of folie à deux.
Thanks to Gérard Crovisier who brings us his lighting.

#19 The 4 Discourses

The four discourses

Discourse of the master, of the hysterical, of the university, and of the analyst; These 4 modalities of discourse structure our intersubjectivity. A common slide of the discourse of the analyst pushes it to the university discourse. while it is present in the Latin countries, It is the rule in Anglo-Saxon countries.

#20 Logic of fantasy #1

The logic of fantasy #1 The negations or “So long, I do not hate you”

The logic of fantasy, very dense and complex seminar of Jacques Lacan. We approach a first part that describes four varieties of negation used by the subject in his relations with his objects of desire. (Warning a failure of the camera which forced me to re-record this workshop! Too bad.)

#21 The Klein group #2

The logic of fantasy #2 The Klein group or “Either not-I think, or not-I am”

The logic of fantasy, very dense and complex seminar of Jacques Lacan. Here's the second part of this workshop. We try to understand the use Jacques Lacan made of the structure of the Klein group. Including connections with repetition, the passage to the act, the acting out and sublimation.

#22 The golden proportion #3

The logic of fantasy #3 The golden proportion

The logic of fantasy. Here's the third part of the workshop. The themes are: the golden ratio and its Lacanian interpretation, the Aristotelian categories, and the use of science by psychoanalysis.

#23 The first Other #4

The logic of fantasy #4 The first Other is the real body

Fourth workshop on the seminar the logic of fantasy. The very first Other is the real body. Then it is perforated by a signifier who inscribe his indelible mark.
The number Lacan uses is not the golden proportion, Let's call it “Number of Lacan”
Many hesitations but a little discovery (for me) …

#24 The fundamental diagram

The fundamental polygon

Lacan has accustomed us to display the constituents of the subject on topological structures. Here for the sake of simplification (!) We present these structures in a singular way, a rectangle. It's the fundamental polygon.
This concerns the sphere, the Moebius strip, the cylinder, the disc, the projective plane, the torus, the Klein bottle. A consequence is that this session is rather austere …

#25 The Trou-matism #5

The Trou-matism

Return on the four sessions on the logic of fantasy. Also rewriting of the constitution of the Real by the Symbolic, Imaginary association, the trauma that casts a hole, the trou-matism.
(The 20 first minutes have a mediocre sound quality)

#26 Topologies object a

Nodal topologies of the object has

Among the topological considerations of the object a, We focus today on its nodal approaches. The number of consistencies (number of rounds of string) determines the structure.

  • One consistency: the knot of the paranoid
  • Two consistencies: the knot of the fantasy
  • Three consistencies: the knot of neurosis
  • Three unwound consistencies: schizophrenia
  • Four consistencies: the knot of the sinthome
