ON THE SUBJECT’S RELATION TO KNOWLEDGE, PARTIII
Returning to Freud and Lacan, this seminar will reflect on the function that knowledge and belief serve in the subject’s relation to the world. Denial, disavowal, foreclusion—and their subjective and collective implications—will be explored, as well as the differences between unconscious and conscious knowledge, between savoir, connaissance, and savoir-faire. The vicissitudes of knowledge in the trajectory of the cure and at the end of an analysis will be addressed, both on the side of the analysand and of the analyst.
The meetings will take place in 2020 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the following Fridays: January 31, February 21, March 20, April 3, and May 1.
