On the Death Drive: An Ethical Challenge for Our Time
by Espace Analytique Ireland- Psychoanalytic Training and Freudian Research
A Seminar with Dr André Michels
Date: Saturday, March 20th, 2021
Time: 10am (Ireland)
In his Seminar VII, The Ethics of Psychoanalysis, Lacan is reconsidering the Western ethical tradition with regard to the Freudian cut. Its radical newness consists in his drive doctrine (Trieblehre) situating the death drive in the very centre of the unconscious and as the main reference point of the psychoanalytic practice and theory.
