Friday 11th October / Venue PSI, Grantham St. / Time: 7pm to 9pm
Title: What does an analysis satisfy?
Theme: Satisfaction / Time and urgency in an analysis: My experience of the Pass
The life of a subject can be translated in psychoanalytical terms as an attempt to respond to a point of real. The Real is that which does work, does not fit. It appears as something impossible. This space will explore how a subject can find the way of know how (savoir faire) with the real he encounters in his life. In an analysis it comes to pass that something that once caused suffering becomes, , a source of satisfaction. How is this transformation produced? Only the experience of an analysis taken to its end via the Pass, can teach us about this point.
