To address the question of “the act of speech” in psychoanalysis, we must return to the terms “act” and “speech” starting from Freud's discovery and Lacan's critical commentary on it.

Suggested Readings “L'Étourdit” (1973), Autres écrits.

Jean-Michel Vappereau practices psychoanalysis in Buenos Aires, where he gives a public seminar on psychoanalysis and topology at the association Topologie en Extension; he is a professor in the Psychoanalysis Master's program of the Universidad Kennedy in Argentina, and a faculty member of Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association. He is the author of the four booklets Essaim, Étoffe, Nœud, and Lu (on the folding Lacan performs of the schema in Freud's letter 52 to Fliess).
