Return to the Psychoanalytic Clinic


with Yves Vanderveken

“After the dissolution of the Ecole freudienne by Jacques Lacan, the Ecole de la Cause freudienne took responsibility for the specifications that he established in his Founding Act (1964). When it began it did so under the motto of a “return to the clinic”. Recently with his involvement in the political field Jacques Alain Miller was able to point out that as a School of Psychoanalysis it operated beyond the clinic. We will see that this tension or dialectic between the clinic and its beyond is what founds the practice and the act of the analyst as such.” Yves Vanderveken
