The Reverse of Psychoanalysis, reading Jacques Lacan’s Seminar XVII, with Felice Cimatti and Alex Pagliardini. 14.03–2.03.2023. In presence and remotely on Zoom platform.

Reading Jacques Lacan’s Seminar XVII is a project born out of the collaboration between Fondazione Baruchello and Psicoanalisi al Presente in 2021 with “… ou pire,” A Restless Reading of Jacques Lacan’s Seminar XIX, with Felice Cimatti, professor of Philosophy of Language at the University of Calabria and Alex Pagliardini, psychoanalyst.  The readings will be divided into 2 parts.

First part

Seminar XVII, “The Reverse of Psychoanalysis,” is the most political, and it is so in that it clearly indicates the direction in which to go, and the direction in which to go is the reverse. The obverse of every discourse, device, situation, encounter, is its unfolding, unfolding, functioning, it is the insistence of pleasure, desire, the ideal that runs through it, it is the sleep it necessarily determines.  The reverse of every discourse, device, situation, encounter, on the other hand, is its foundation and collapse, it is the insistence of jouissance, of trauma, of the symptom that runs through it, it is the awakening that necessarily determines. 
To read Seminar XVII is therefore to decipher the logic of this reversal, to understand the need to go in its direction and to extract the restless actuality of this need.

The project is intended to provide an opportunity for research and engagement to address through dialogue, short-circuiting and reflection the French psychoanalyst’s ever timely thought.

The meetings will be held from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., at the headquarters of the Fondazione Baruchello in Via del Vascello 35, and online on the Zoom platform. Registration for the entire seminar is €40.00.

Second part

Reading Jacques Lacan’s Seminar XVII – part 2. Edited by Felice Cimatti and Alex Pagliardini. 24.11 2022–02.03. 2023. In presence and remotely on Zoom platform. Reading Jacques Lacan’s Seminar! – having reached the third round of meetings, we can say that this is what it is all about. Therefore after Seminar XIX, … or worse, and after the “first part” of Seminar XVII, The Reverse of Psychoanalysis, with the series of meetings this year we will try to understand something of the “second part” of Seminar XVII. As with the other volt will “not be an easy thing”! If in the first part we attempted to define how a discourse is established and analyzed the four ways in which it is declined, going to extract its political and clinical scope, in the second part it is a matter of taking a leap, to account for a few things: that there is of the psychoanalyst, that there is of trauma, that there is of repetition, and that there is and “all the rest is dream.” As with other times, the series of meetings is organized by the Fondazione Baruchello in collaboration with Psicoanalisi al Presente, and is led by Felice Cimatti and Alex Pagliardini.

The meetings will be held from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m., at the headquarters of the Fondazione Baruchello at 35 Via del Vascello, and online on the Zoom platform.
