The Simple Jacques Lacan
The Simple Jacques Lacan: The Psychoanalyst: ”A Thing” to research, to study and to learn.
Enough of Lacan the difficult theoretician and the obtuse rhetorician! Although one consequence of Lacan’s ideas, according Ross Skelton (1993) in his article Lacan for the faint hearted, “is that rhetoric holds the secret of our very being”. Enough of the complex, obscure, mis-understood and misinterpret Lacan! Besides, as Octave Mannoni (1971) puts it, the style of Jacques Lacan, “It is a style expressly made for psychoanalysts and psychoanalysis”. It is in this sense, because it is for us psychoanalysts, that Lacan became magic, poetry and science, baroque and art, rhetoric and philosophy, the challenge of language and the surprise of words. The intelligent elucidation of the mysteries of the Unconscious discourse of Freud: “A Thing” to research, to study and to learn.
In LPR-SP we want to understand the simple Jacques Lacan too: the psychoanalyst who spent more than 36 years of his life in a brilliant seminar in a university, from his private practice, closed to Louis Althusser, Roland Barthes, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Levi-Strauss, Jean-Paul Sartre And Simone de Beauvoir, and with the surrealists as friends such as Dali, Picasso (Lacan was his private physician) and Breton, studying the clinical cases and fundamental discourses of Sigmund Freud and in the way transforming the practice and theory of our psychoanalysis that we can called beyond ourself “the double transformative experience”.
