Join us for this FLi 2021-2022 program taking the psychoanalytic clinic as a starting point to consider key areas of psychological presentation and suffering that characterise the modern era. Exploring all six of Freud’s major case studies, dedicating three weeks to each, as a backdrop to considering what analysands present with today and assessing the similarities and differences to Freud’s and Lacan’s clinical practices. For practitioners, trainees, students, and those seeking to consider in-depth links between psychoanalytic theory, clinical practice, and the impact of contemporary culture on subjectivity.

Each seminar co-delivered by two highly experienced clinical practitioners and theoreticians.

Guy Le Gaufey (Paris), Astrid Gessert (London), Annie Rogers (Amherst), Rik Loose, (Dublin), Leon Brenner (Berlin), Rolf Flor (Boston), Anouchka Grose (London), Patricia Gherovici (Philadelphia), Carol Owens (Dublin), Kristen Hennessey (Pennsylvania), Jamieson Webster (New York), Olga Cox Cameron (Dublin), Anne Worthington (London).

John Dall’Aglio & Derek Hook discuss John’s work marrying Lacanian psychoanalysis with neuroscience. Refreshing attempt to develop a new conceptual space within Lacanian psychoanalysis. Influenced by Slavoj Zizek and Adrian Johnston.  He’s not glossing over the inevitable friction points. [Don’t the best of marriages survive and flourish within those, anyway?] Tongue in cheek, he points out that Lacan was not immune to neuroscience, even though Lacanianism might be allergic! Watch out for Irish psychoanalyst Paul Moore getting namechecked for his psychoanalytic work with the seriously neurologically compromised.

John and Derek are colleagues at Duquesne University, which hosts the Lacan: Clinic & Culture conference, 14 – 16 October 2022.
