Interview with Mercedes de Francisco
Interview with Mercedes de Francisco, by Olga Montón in Madrid, during the month of February 2014. As head of the school nights, who works on the subject of the next Congress of the WAP, we talked with Mercedes de Francisco about the guests to this setting, and the issues discussed. We asked: how to sustain Lacanian psychoanalytic practice in the 21st century where the difference between neurosis and psychosis seems diluted; how to aim to the real in the analytic experience and some nuances between the transference unconscious and the real unconscious. We also approached her text "Random", published in Scilicet’s latest edition. Mercedes de Francisco is AME (School member analyst) of the ELP, Member of the WAP, and Professor of the NUCEP (Madrid). He was the first President of the ELP in its foundation. Olga Montón is member of the ELP/WAP.
