Evening of the ACF-VLF: To Read Lacan. Lacan and his Conception of the Speaking-Body
In the 21st century, reading Lacan and his conception of the Speaking Body depends less on the quality of understanding, but rather more on that of explanation.

The symptom, like a written text, incarnates an articulated word that receives its materiality from the body affected by lalangue. Within the context of the X Congress of the WAP, we enter a dialogue with and build upon the work of Jacques-Alain Miller to grasp the implications of Freud’s conceptualization of the ‘living unconscious’ and Lacan’s ‘parlêtre’.
