KNOTTINGS 2008-2009

Lacanian interpretation

The “Knottings” seminar, a seminar of the Executive Committe of the NLS, continues this year. It will bring together colleagues from six different Societies or Groups to prepare the VIIth Congress, which will take place in Paris on 9th and 10th May 2009. The argument and bibliography to be used as common reference are diffused by NLS-Messenger and can be found on the NLS website:

www.amp-nls.org <http://www.amp-nls.org/>

In each place, three papers will be presented and discussed : a theoretical introduction by a member of the EC or a representative, two clinical pieces, one by a member of the local group and the other by a guest from another group. The papers should not be too long (20 minutes), so that a real discussion can take place. Each seminar is led by the president of the local group or a representative. A « reporter», appointed by the local group, will write an account of the seminar, to be circulated by the EC of the NLS.

For the Executive Committee of the NLS,
Anne Lysy-Stevens,


Lacanian Interpretation: How come I suffer the way I do?

There is a question of this kind at the beginning of an analysis. How do we hear such a question? How do we interpret such a request? Can we, should we answer it? Perhaps, the psychoanalyst is an expert after all and has got all the answers!? Ready-made answers for average individuals? Well, if the psychoanalyst knows something it must be that there is an incommensurability between the average normality and the singularity of a so-called individual. So, the psychoanalyst does not resort to a Big Book where all the answers are already written but will invite the analysand to open his/her own book! And they’ll start reading. It’s called interpreting. But what could interpreting be if it is not telling someone what something means? That is precisely what the NLS Seminar will tackle next year. We have to face the fact that interpretation in psychoanalysis is not the same as what it is in philosophy, religion or therapy. To face that fact and to account for it! During seven seminars we will address fundamental aspects of the practice of Lacanian analysis, which make it different from any other talking cure. What do we listen to? Who knows what’s important? Who decides what means something, and what something means? What is the authority in psychoanalysis? What do we hope for, expect from meaning? Is there something beyond or after meaning - if anything at all? This is nothing short of questioning the causality by which Lacanian psychoanalysis abides.
