Squares with Concentric Circles
Reading (Some) of What Lacan Read
To read Lacan’s seminars is to encounter his readings of and conversations with seminal Freudian & Kierkegaardian works (a few among his vast reading & reference to the Western canon). In this seminar we will read and savor a few of those to which he often returns returning to elaborate his freudian psychoanalysis.
Freud: Chpt 7 The Interpretation of Dreams; Beyond the Pleasure Principle; A Child is Being Beaten;
Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality; Inhibitions, Symptoms & Anxiety; Little Hans;
Kierkegaard: The Concept of Anxiety
