By introducing notions such as lalangue, “saying” (le dire), and “the said” (le dit), Lacan alters, without abandoning, the scope of the function of speech and spoken language as articulated by Freud, albeit in a paradoxical manner which we will explore.
Suggested Readings Lacan: Seminars XIX, 1971-72, Ou pire; XX, 1972-73, Encore; “Le savoir du psychanalyste” (lectures, 1971-72, Hôpital Sainte-Anne, unpublished); “La Troisième” (lecture, November 1, 1974, 7th conference of L'école freudienne de Paris, Rome).
Alain Vanier is a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist, and an emeritus professor at the Université Paris 7 Diderot. He is an Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association faculty member, and, in English translation, the author of the monograph Lacan, published by the Other Press.
