Topic and theme of the course

For different reasons Lacan’s Seminar on Anxiety (1962-1963) remains crucial. First of all there is the subject matter. Anxiety has become even more of a problem in contemporary clinic and culture. Every day we are getting more and more anxious. Anxious over the progress of ‘our’ science, anxious over the progress of ‘their’ terrorism. Lacan’s Seminar can give us crucial insight in these topics.
This Seminar is also important to understand the hidden logic of Lacan’s teaching in progress. It could be argued that Lacan, in studying anxiety, packs his bags for his own journey through psychoanalysis, beyond Freud. Anxiety has allowed him to develop his own view on both the object and the function this object has, not only in jouissance, anxiety and desire, but also in the mirror image, fantasy and the three clinical structures known as neurosis, psychosis and perversion.
Although taking into account the cultural, academic and clinical importance of Anxiety, this doctoral school course modestly yet ambitiously aims at a close reading of the seminar, in order to bring the details of Lacan’s argument to the fore. Guiding questions are: What is anxiety and what is it’s importance for psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and contemporary culture? Why does Lacan state that anxiety isn’t without object and what is this object? What are the different forms of this object? What does he mean when he stresses that “Anxiety is an intermediary term between jouissance and desire in so far as desire is constituted and founded upon the anxiety phase, once anxiety has been got through”?

Lecturer

Lieven Jonckheere

I am a Doctor in clinical psychology (doctoral thesis on Lacans conceptualisation of anxiety) – lecturer in psychology at University Ghent for more than 30 years
As a psychologist I always try to keep a critical eye on the exhausting effects of human resource management and the monopolisation of the field of mental health by the university.
But first of all I am Psychoanalyst in private practice for more than 30 years – member of The New Lacanian School and The World Association for Psychoanalysis
As a psychoanalyst I am interested in all things human, all  too human and inhuman: arts, monotheisms and politics, newly invented identities on the basis of new symptoms and your inconceivably private sinthomatic inventions. I love to quote Freud and to translate Lacan.

enkele commentaren van huurders:
Probably my best experience with B&B. Really nice little apartment with a stylish interior, in a perfect location within the city center. Had a great weekend, explored the city but also decided to spend one night relaxing and listening to music in the apartment because we liked it so much. Would definitely recommend this if you visit Gent.

L’appartement de Piet est à 100 m du beffroi que l’on peut photographier de l’appartement. L’accueil est formidable et l’appartement très vaste ne manque de rien. Les nombreuses fenêtres le rendent très lumineux et fauteuils très confortables : une escale de charme!”

Nice appartement, very well located in the middle of town.  I especially liked the fact that the appartement is original, with wooden walls and unique furniture: it really feels like holiday staying there! Also nice collection of jazz & classical cds, have a try with “Potato Masterpiece”, great for the mood.  Thank  you very much, it was very nice staying at your appartement.
