Introductory Seminar of the LS 2009-2010:

FREUD’S CASES OF WOMEN – A LACANIAN READING

Seminar Series chaired by Natalie Wulfing
Speakers: Gabriela van den Hoven, Vincent Dachy, Roger Litten

We return to two classic Freudian cases, Dora and The Young Homosexual Woman, and read them through the commentaries Lacan made at different stages of his teaching.

These cases remain invaluable to us for several reasons: Freud’s discoveries on technique, and on drive economy insofar as it is bound up in the signifier, both arouse from the difficulties he experienced in the treatment. And Freud’s ethics, his position towards the patient’s complaints, insisting on a strict reading of the text of the unconscious, also emerged through these cases. We are still learning from this orientation.

These cases also attest to the fact that psychoanalysis is an invention intimately bound up with femininity, with the particular suffering of female subjects. Lacan extracted and developed the structural elements from the Freudian trajectory. In his late work, he ended up considering the semblant as a response to jouissance – something women have a close relationship with.

Our idea is to investigate anew the structural impasses Freud came across, their logic and how he dealt with them. We will seek to further our understanding of these impasses through the Lacanian notion of the phallus (Seminar 3 and 5) and object a (Seminars 11 and 17). If approaching a case from the perspective of object a is still grounded in the production of meaning, then, understanding it on the basis of jouissance (Seminars 20 and 23) produces an equality between imaginary, symbolic and real, and this brings the semblant to the fore.
