It’s all kinds of new!
The Lacanian Review is a new journal in the Lacanian orientation for the Anglophone world.
New? Well, not so new – it continues on from Hurly-Burly, the journal of The New Lacanian School that, for many years, published and stimulated debates around the main events of this working community: congresses, encounters, clinical study days and workshops.
New? Well, yes, very new – it is now also the Anglophone Journal of the World Association of Psychoanalysis. It remains dedicated to the theoretical and clinical work of the New Lacanian School, but will also contribute to a worldwide debate between the Schools affiliated to the WAP.
How new? Well, absolutely new – in its content as well as in its aim and presentation. Each issue will open with a thematic section dealing with the crucial problems of our times. These problems, which organise the master’s discourse, are not only essential for an analyst to grasp if she wants to follow the changes occurring in modern subjectivity and symptoms, but they also find their moment of truth in the analytic discourse.
This is clearly apparent in our first issue. All over the world, religions have become a prominent topic causing pain, casualties and blood. What does psychoanalysis know about Gods? What can other forms of knowledge teach psychoanalysis about religions and their subjective manifestations, such as faith? What effects do scientific developments have on religions and beliefs? Is Science replacing belief with certainty? Conversations, articles, interviews are presented here to help clarify the modern mutations of religions and their subjective effects.
A second section will be dedicated to the formations of the analyst, to be understood as ‘formations of the unconscious’.
It is well known that Lacan changed the formation of analysts, and as a result was excluded from the analytic orthodoxy and its institutions of the time!
For nearly fifty years the Lacanian devices for analytic training have proved their worth. In addition to a solid knowledge made out of the advances in different scientific fields, including psychopathology, there are two main dispositifs: first, the pass replaces the training analysis and ensures that the results of your own analysis are transmitted. Results of analytic experience, shrunk and extracted through an analysis, will be presented in each issue under the title Reduction. Second, Supervision, which we call control because it deals with words and speech, not vision – an analyst has to control the words he uses so that they can be heard by the analysand.
A third section will be dedicated to the main themes addressed by the NLS and WAP Congresses each year – there will be theoretical studies and clinical cases.
We aim to ensure that a general conversation can take place in The Lacanian Review. It is vital for Psychoanalysis to know “the whorl into which his era draws him in the ongoing enterprise of Babel”. And, today, the English language is a Babel all of its own! So please don’t hesitate to send us your contributions.
Oh my Gods! All That New? Yes – Lacan keeps on being new, no matter how many times you read him. Opening this first issue you will discover a newly translated text on religion by Lacan. And you will also find two texts by Jacques-Alain Miller published here in English for the first time.
