David Pereira

"In his work Analysis Terminable and Interminable, Freud, in commenting on the work of psychoanalysis, acknowledged that theorising in psychoanalysis had the status of "phantasying". This is to say, that the psychoanalyst's production of knowledge concerning the unconscious articulates itself in phantasy. For Lacan, the logic of phantasy could not be articulated without reference to the function of writing." Read full Logos
