In psychoanalysis we “distinguish the relation to the Other, in which being finds its status, from the interpersonal relation, with its warmth and lures.” (Écrits, 512). In other words, we distinguish the symbolic from the imaginary axis in the analytic situation.
Join us next week, for more of Lacan’s direction of the treatment.

The reading group will continue its sessions next week on Tuesday, 14th of January as usual at 19h. In this third and last segment of this reading seminar we will address the question of the "desire of the analyst." The desire of the analyst is the driving force of the psychoanalytic treatment. But what does the analyst desire? And, in this sense, how does this desire direct the psychoanalytic treatment? Together we will try to understand what do analysts do with their being and why it is so important to preserve desire on the level of the "lack-of-being."

On the analyst barking up the wrong tree: Acting out always comprises an element that is highly significant... It's always a message, and it's for that reason that we are interested in it when it occurs in an analysis. It's always addressed to the analyst in that the latter is not, in brief, all that badly placed, but not completely in his place either. It's in general a hint that the subject is giving us and this can sometimes go a long way and sometimes be very serious.” (Lacan, SV, p. 389)

”Introducing the patient to an initial situating of his position in reality.” In the reading group, we have started working on Lacan’s idea of reality. Not so much the reality ego-psychologists aim to adapt their patients to but a reality that is fabricated with the direct involvement of the subject. What is your part in this whole drama?
