Returning to Freud’s considerations on repetition in the analytic experience as a form of past behavior that emerges in the present, this seminar will study repetition in its dual aspect, both as an insistence of the signifying chain and as an encounter with an object missed by definition.
Suggested Readings: Freud: "Remembering, Repeating and Working-Through" (1914); Beyond the Pleasure Principle (1920). Lacan: Seminars XI, 1964, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis, classes 4, 5, 10; XVII, 1969-70, The Other Side of Psychoanalysis, class 5.
