Seminar of Moustafa Safouan

Seminar of Moustafa Safouan

by Anna Shane
     
 

Thanks to Safouan, we rediscover the link between Lacan's concept of Jouissance and Freud's death drive, between the signifier and Freud's unconscious, and between Freud's concept of transference and Lacan's controversial views on the end of analysis. Neither a follower nor a detractor, Safouan is a "Lacanian" who knows how to keep his distance.

Editorial Reviews

Applying Lacanian insights in a Freudian framework, these five lectures (delivered at the Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis, November 1997) discuss the end of analysis, the unconscious, the object of psychoanalysis, jouissance, and the death drive. Question-and-answer sessions follow each lecture. There is no index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
