About this Event

Seminar Description: Although “jouissance” is generally taken to be a sophisticated concept for advanced Lacanians, its contemporary use suggests that it is little more than a descriptor for disparate states that blocks further research. Exploring its sources in Freud and its development in Lacan opens up the study of admixtures of pleasure and pain, sexuality and suffering, and helps us to re-situate concepts such as autoerotism and the subject.

Seminar takes place by Zoom 13:00-16:00 Dublin-GMT:

Darian Leader is a psychoanalyst working in London and a member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR). A major contributor to the field of psychoanalysis, his books include ‘What is Madness?’, ‘Strictly Bipolar’, ‘Hands’ and ‘Why Can’t We Sleep?’ He has also regularly contributed articles on psychoanalysis to The Guardian.

3 CPD points will be awarded by APPI to attendees.
