Inherent in Jacques Lacan’s Founding Act of June 21, 1964 is the reality that the relationship between leader and group is a permanent problem. Within his innovation Lacan highlighted a possible way to forge one’s own way rather than become a disciple who follows a master. This is the onerous and creative task faced by those who have the desire to pass the baton that Freud first wielded.
