#18 Sinthome, sexual intercourse and Joyce

Sinthome and sexual intercourse for 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.

#17 Repetitions

Automata 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.

#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

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?

#14 Reality, hallucination in psychosis

Reality & hallucination in psychosis

The passage of an object of reality into an object of desire is drastically transformed when a fundamental signifier is foreclosed. The object of reality is then transformed into hallucination.

#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.

#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”

#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
