Volume 14: The Lacanian Clinic


David Pereira

"James Joyce puts into the mouth of Stephen Dedalus the question ‘What’s in a name?’ - a question one hears being pondered in many places nowadays. The existence today of a Lacanian clinic of The Freudian School of Melbourne allows us, even requires us, to pose the question differently. What is a naming? The appellation ‘Lacanian’ engages in a signification, the effects of excess in relation to which, invokes the importance of the very function of naming and the ethics of the Lacanian clinic."
