Workshop on the NLS theme: Interpretation: from Truth to Event
A series of seminars and workshops on the theme of the forthcoming Congress of the NLS – "Interpretation: from Truth to Event" – to be held on 27-28 June 2020 in Ghent.
In this series, we will discuss the changing status of interpretation in the contemporary practice of Lacanian psychoanalysis and outline the various modes of interpretation brought to bear in the course of an analysis. This shift in the status of interpetation goes hand in hand with a change in the status of the unconscious in Lacan's teaching.
Broadly speaking, it leads us from what Jacques-Alain Miller has named the transferential unconscious – the one that emerges through various formations and gathers its consistency in analysis as a search for truth in relation to a supposition of knowledge in the Other – to the unconscious as real, indexed the impact of language on the body and what in the symptom, after the work of deciphering finds its limit, ultimately proves to be irreducible for each one of us and even that upon which our singularity as a speaking being depends.
