The Lacanian Reviews is a blogsite hosting two publications. The first, LRO (the Lacanian Review Online) is a newsletter that is published every Friday. The second, TLR (The Lacanian Review), is a printed publication following in Hurly Burly’s footsteps.
Both LRO and TLR are aimed at those who are interested in Jacques Lacan’s teachings. Both publications will be broadcasting the advances of ongoing research in the «Orientation lacanienne» with Jacques-Alain Miller.
Their field of investigation is the one Jacques Lacan defined for psychoanalysis: bearing in mind the structure of language (the language we speak in everyday life and which is the unconscious), we will be singling out and lending due weight both to the singular speech and words that shape discourse and to the modes of satisfaction they promote. This compass leads us to the fields of clinic and culture alike, culture having become a Babel of worldwide dimension whose master signifiers spread across the globe with a new velocity.
We aim at following the unconscious, which is structured the way English –a language of many dialects- is: the decipherable unconscious and real unconscious alike. In order for this to be possible, a general conversation is necessary; a conversation that might raise misunderstanding to the rank of knowledge. This blogsite, together with LRO and TLR, will host this conversation. It remains open to all intellectual fields.
LRO and TLR are publications of the New Lacanian School and the World Association of Psychoanalysis.
