The Lacanian Review: Issue 1: Oh My God(s)! / ספרות מקצועית


1 במלאי

The Lacanian Review (TLR), Hurly-Burly is published by the New Lacanian School (NLS) and World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP).

All over the world, religions have become a prominent topic causing pain, casualties and blood. What does psychoanalysis know about Gods? What can other forms of knowledge teach psychoanalysis about religions and their subjective manifestations, such as faith? What effects do scientific developments have on religions and beliefs? Is Science replacing belief with certainty? Conversations, articles, interviews are presented here to help clarify the modern mutations of religions and their subjective effects. A solid knowledge made out of the advances in different scientific fields.

The general conversation in The Lacanian Review is vital for the psychoanalysist to know “the whorl into which his era draws him in the ongoing enterprise of Babel”. And, today, the English language is a Babel all of its own.

OMG! All That New? Yes – Lacan keeps on being new, no matter how many times you read him. Opening this first issue you will discover:

* a newly translated text on religion by Lacan,

* two texts by Jacques-Alain Miller published here in English for the first time.
