Yves Vanderveken at the Irish Circle of the Lacanian Orientation, ICLO-NLS in Dublin: "Return to the Psychoanalytic Clinic" and "Structural Clinic of Psychosis"
Episode 1, ICLO-NLS Space Formation of the Analyst and Its School – Return to the Psychoanlytic Clinic, “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”. Yves Vanderveken invites us to 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. Episodes 2 and 3, ICLO-NLS Clinical and Theoretical Seminar: “Structural Clinic of Psychosis”, “From the beginning of his teaching, Jacques Lacan searched for what could give a structural basis to the analytical clinic. In order to free it from the miasma of the imaginary or the ignorance in which it can move when it is based solely upon the phenomena or disparate feelings and ideas of the clinician. He did so by seeking to distinguish precisely what founded the difference between psychosis and neurosis”. Yves Vanderveken returns to this effort in his seminar. Followed by a clinical presentation by Susan McFeely in discussion with Yves and the audience.
