"Note on the Mirror Stage", by Gérard Wajcman: In 1936 a drama takes place in Europe, Lacan will engage with his decision to go to Berlin where the Olympics are being developed. Lacan will attend this party of bodies wich will be rather a very promising drama of bodies. "The Body has its Resonance", by Pierre Naveau: “The speaking body speaks in terms of drives. This is what authorised Lacan to present the drive on the model of a signifying chain.(…) He calls to mind how the signifying chains that we decipher in a Freudian manner are plugged into the body, and they are made up of an "enjoying substance" (Jacques-Alain Miller,"The Unconscious and the Speaking- Body ") * Audios: 4, 5 and 6.
