Essential book for Lacan's psycholoanalysis ethics While perhaps not the perfect Seminar of Lacan's with which to begin, it is far from the worst

Essential book for Lacan's psycholoanalysis ethics. Lacan is one of the most enigmatic, fascinating, and turgid philosophers (argue if you will)/creators to have ever lived. This volume is Lacan at his best. One may spend hours on an essay, Das Ding, for example. While perhaps not the perfect Seminar of Lacan's with which to begin, it is far from the worst. Certainly it is essential once one has been introduced to Lacan's thought. Moreover, the very title of the Seminar, "The Ethics of Psychoanalysis," is enough to justify the time it takes to examine it.

From 1952 to 1980 French psychoanalyst and psychiatrist Jacques Lacan gave an annual seminar in Paris. In 1951, Lacan, then a member of the Paris Psychoanalytic Society, initiated a series of weekly Wednesday meetings in his apartment on Rue de Lille, Paris. In 1952, the meetings were transferred to the Sainte-Anne Hospital where Lacan worked as a consultant psychiatrist.

BOOK VII The Ethics of Psychoanalysis 1959-1960 TRANSLATED WITH NOTES BY. Dennis Porter. W, w, norton & company new york. In speaking of the ethics of psychoanalysis, I chose a word which to my mind was no accident. I might have said "morality" instead. If I say "ethics," you will soon see why.

The only mistake in reading this book, would be to be looking for some kind of final answer. Instead, one should appreciate the fruitful questions that Lacan poses to anyone interested in philosophy, the humanities and arts.

In his famous seminar on ethics, Jacques Lacan uses this question as his departure point for a re-examination of Freud's work and the experience of psychoanalysis in relation to ethics. Delving into the psychoanalyst's inevitable involvement with ethical questions, Lacan clarifies many of his key concepts. He is the director of the Department of Psychanalysis of Paris VIII. Strange enough, Dennis Porter spent 18 years of his adult life behind bars. At 17 he took a terrible turn from beloved academic prospect to public enemy number one.

Jacques Lacan, Jacques Alain Miller, Dennis Porter. In his famous seminar on ethics, Jacques Lacan uses this question as his departure point for a re-examination of Freud's work and the experience of psychoanalysis in relation to ethics. During the seminar he discusses the problem of sublimation, the paradox of jouissance, the essence of tragedy, and the tragic dimension of analytical experience

Examines the ethics of psychoanalysis, discussing sublimation, tragedy, and analytical experience, and offers criticism of some trends in psychoanalysis
  • It was an essential part of my research for a tough graduate English class. I will keep it since it will probably be needed for my thesis.

  • Much here that is interesting, though what passes for playfulness and clarity in modern French thinkers often becomes a slog. But the translation magnifies the difficulties. Lacan's project involves a close reading of Freud, with detailed explication of Freud's language. For reasons that seem out of joint with the notion of translation, the translator has opted not to translate Freud's German. So this translation needs a second translation for people who do not read German.

  • Lacan is one of the most enigmatic, fascinating, and turgid philosophers (argue if you will)/creators to have ever lived. This volume is Lacan at his best. One may spend hours on an essay, Das Ding, for example. The pay-off, however, is incalculable. His interpretation of Antigone in this volume rates among the best ever elaborated by a theorist of any type. He shows this first true literary heroine in all of her sublimity. Whereas Heidegger deals with Antigone abstractly, Lacan writes as if he knew her: as if her loved her and needs to tell us the motivation behind her tragic necessity. While perhaps not the perfect Seminar of Lacan's with which to begin, it is far from the worst. Certainly it is essential once one has been introduced to Lacan's thought. Moreover, the very title of the Seminar, "The Ethics of Psychoanalysis," is enough to justify the time it takes to examine it. Indeed, the title is to be taken in two senses, both as the ethical doctrine that should be practiced by the analyst, and as a possible opening into an altogether different experience of thinking about ethics for the non-analyst. This is a truly essential book.

  • something lacan says in the last chapter is a good place to begin: 'since one should always start up again with a definition, let's say that an ethics essentially consists in a judgment of our action, with the proviso that it is only significant if the action implied by it also contains within it, or is supposed to contain, a judgment, even if it is only implicit.'

    and now leaping backwards to the first chapter: 'we are faced with the question of what analysis allows us to formulate concerning the origin of morality.

    'is its contribution limited to the elaboration of a mythology that is more credible and more secular than that which claims to be revealed? i have in mind the reconstructed mythology of "totem and taboo", which starts out from the experience of the original murder of the father, from the circumstances that give rise to it and its consequences.' the main freudian text lacan urges on those in attendance is "civilization and its discontents", which opens up lacan's talk to kant and sade. actually, aristotle, kant and sade. the good as the happy life, put forth by aristotle in his golden mean lacan rejects as dated, an ethics for the masters of ancient greece. also there's a problem with aristotle's prime mover of the universe. civilization, modern civilization, picks up, begins again, becomes relevant,in the 17th century. a century later the waking kant introduced to the world his categorical imperative, and man's relationship with jehovah and jesus.

    the rituals of purification, sublimation, catharsis, are discussed and used, aristotle said, by the arts, and the gods figured prominantly in the greek arts. voices in disciplines outside philosophy, have placed the rituals within theology and mythology. lacan's interpretaton of sophocles' antigone combine the disciplines.

    there seems to be a stir among those in attendance concerning the many books lacan has read that he urges on those in attendance to read. a stir lacan doesn't like and makes known his discontent to his students.

    this seminar is translated into english by dennis porter, who appears to have caught some of lacan's word play: moral register and cash register, the good and the service of goods. i waited for the golden mean and meaning, but i guess the opportunity did not present itself. though as a transgression, porter may... . i'll stop, maybe someday mr porter will do a translation of another one of the seminars.
