WORKSHOP

The Imaginary, Symbolic, and Real Body, Part II
Erik Porge

10:30 AM – 3:00 PM EDT

According to Freud, transference manifestations alone allow the patient to make “buried and forgotten love-emotions actual and manifest” and “no one can be slain in absentia or in efigie.” Faced with quarantine and social distancing, the presence of bodies in the transference has been challenged and the relation among Symbolic, Imaginary and Real in the treatment called into question. Clinical aspects of sublimation and perversion will be addressed.

Suggested Readings Freud: “The Dynamics of the Transference” (1912); “A Child Is Being Beaten” (1919); Beyond the Pleasure Principle (1920). Lacan: “La Troisième” (1974); Seminars XVI, 1968-69, D’un Autre à l’autre (Édition du Seuil version) and XI, 1964, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis; “Conférences et entretiens dans les universités nord-américaines” (Scilicet 6/7, 1976).

Erik Porge practices psychoanalysis in Paris and is a founding member of the association L'instance lacanienne and the editor-in-chief of the journal essaim. He is a faculty member of Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association. In English he has published Truth and Knowledge in the Clinic (2017), and the latest of his many books in French is Amour, désir, jouissance. Le moment de la sublimation (2020).
