“for there is a flaw in the order of things”: Schreber and the symbolic

InterCcECT invites you to the second session of our new regular reading group on Lacan’s Seminars, Thursday 31 May. We’ll be continuing with Seminar 3: The Psychoses, focusing on Chapter 2, with the additional text of Freud’s commentary on Daniel Paul Schreber, “Psychoanalytic Notes Upon an Autobiographical Account of Paranoia,” and with the recommendation to add Schreber’s “Memoirs of My Nervous Illness” to taste.

For a different negation of the social order than that represented by the psychotic, we’ll soon be reading Adam Kotsko’s Why We Love Sociopaths: A Guide to Late-Capitalist Television and holding a book discussion with the author at 57th Street Books. Slavoj Zizek recently praised Kotsko’s argument in this lecture.

Join us for Lacan, Freud, and Schreber at 5pm at our salon in Bucktown. Write us for more details, or to propose other summer fun. InterCcECT takes its shape from you!
