What is meant by the end times? What is the value of this phrase? We are ‘Writing the Disaster’ (Maurice Blanchot). Why did Freud “reinvent” the Death Drive? I will review my writing on the death drive and why this controversial concept has become so critically important in the clinic and culture. Lacan and Klein are alone in accepting, albeit very differently, this ultimate datum, which, in the absence of the father, permit psychosis and perversion to increase. And are we witnessing the death wish of humanity, or conversely is this the time for metanoia? Rob Weatherill will be discussing these questions on November 11th.
