"The father after the Pass"
"The father after the Pass" is the title of the lecture given by Leonardo Gorostiza in Barcelona in February 2014. The presentation was conducted by Margarita Álvarez, and the debate was animated by Antoni Vicens. Leonardo Gorostiza begins his lecture recalling that in Valencia in 2009, he presented what he has called a testimony prior to the nomination, since he had not gone through the device of the Pass. This was very important for him, because it instituted a forced choice, to pass through the device. Then, he thought why not present something of the last testimony in Barcelona, with which he "closed" his three years teaching in exercise, as AE (Analyst of the School). And also the questions and some of the responses that could arise in what was called "The father after the pass" (which is already a response that presupposes a question). The question is: Is there a father after the Pass? Leonardo Gorostiza made his last testimony in the EOL in April of last year, and tried to locate how, in his case, the formula "making use of the father" took place. He stressed this formula not only in the sense of making use of the father, after the pass- in other words, to disregard the father with the condition to make use of him-, but also to clear up how the subject in its own constitution, made use of the father, to respond to the traumatic encounter with the hole of the sexual relationship. Leonardo Gorostiza is a psychoanalyst in Buenos Aires, member of the EOL and the WAP. AE (Analyst of the School) between2009-2012, and President of the WAP between 2010-2014. He is President of Radio Lacan and teacher of the ICdeBA of Buenos Aires.
