The Lacanian Review: Issue 4: Family dramas, family traumas / ספרות מקצועית


המלאי אזל

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

Spring 2017

The 4th issue of The Lacanian Review is about to come out. Once more we have chosen a theme of the utmost importance for our present: Family Dramas, Family Traumas.

It contains fundamental texts for the orientation of clinical practice with children and adolescents by Lacan, Jacques-Alain Miller and many other psychoanalysts. We have also interviewed lawyers and sociologists. What’s the family today from the perspective of their respective disciplines?

Family! This is where it all starts for everyone: the place of dramas and traumas, to be repeated and transformed into destinies or drifts.

On the one hand, the decoupling of reproduction from the apparent naturality of heterosexuality by science has produced a profound re-ordering of the Freudian family and the paternal reference that it was premised upon. On the other, the effects of capitalism have also impacted self-representations and the kind of objects that condense jouissance within a family: what are babies for today’s parents?
