You are cordially invited to read this second issue of the aperiodic bulletin Latigazo, where you will find the second part of Jacques-Alain Miller’s presentation of Jacques Lacan’s Seminar 6. This Seminar was established by Jacques-Alain Miller and is now published  in  French.  A  presentation  which  is  a  teaching,  in  it  Miller  highlights through the lessons on Hamlet that “the fantasy [fantasme] is indicated as the locum where the subject’s question about his desire finds an answer, that is, as the nec plus ultra  of  desire”.  Desire  and  its  interpretation  “establishes”  that  desire  implies  a relation to the object via the fantasy, and that it is possible to interpret.

 

The coordinates of these pages are linked to desire. The reader will find a warm interview given by Mitra Kadivar –whom we familiarly call by her first name-, and where she responds in detail to Latigazo on her current situation in Iran, her sentiment with regards to the international campaign that repulsed her absurd detention. Mitra says that she wonders: “had Jacques-Alain Miller never been born, or if I had not known him, or if I had never been able to get free from the police station to send him my first email, what would have become of me?”

 

Gérard Miller, professor at the Department of Psychoanalysis in the University of 8, sends us an important communication which LATIGO circulates immediately!

 

Damasia Amadeo, member of LATIGO, transmits to us a whiplash in two times about her country’s History: a testimony on the effects of State terrorism that awakens a reading and which she calls “retrieval of a particular memory”.

 

To close this second issue, the texts by Ricardo Torrejón and Guido Coll, young members  of  LATIGO,  who  write  to  us  sharing  their  impressions  on  the  recent meeting held in Buenos Aires with some members of the Lacanian Transatlantic for Research, during the Lacanian Week [November 2013].

 

And, in our forthcoming editions… Eric Laurent, Miquel Bassols, Interviews and

Texts,  always “in” the spirit of LATIGO!

 

Please go ahead, into this agalma of reading and writing!

Born of a contingency and a trauma overcome, LATIGO is a true psychoanalytic product.

 

Born also in the context of an international politics in which psychoanalysis is fighting for its survival, LATIGO is a network committed to the analytical cause.

 

Finally, LATIGAZO, the aperiodical electronic bulletin, is a peculiar instance of the 21st Century.

 

Composed of 70 enthusiastic colleagues from both sides of the Atlantic, LATIGAZO will be, as its name indicates, a forceful word. Its objective? To arouse interest in psychoanalysis and more specifically to make known the difficulties that some of our colleagues encounter in places far away from the School.

 

Thus you will find, at the forefront of this as of the subsequent issues, a «Study» rubric, intended to explore a psychoanalytic topic in more depth.

 

For this first issue, thanks to the kind permission of Jacques-Alain Miller and the excellent transcription transmitted by Carol Dewambrechies-La Sagna, we have the Presentation of Seminar VI, “Desire and Its Interpretation”, given by Jacques-Alain Miller at La Mutualite in May.

 

You will also find a variation on the name of our network.  Elvira Dianno, a colleague from EOL, and member of LATIGO, deploys this signifier in its resonances with political commitment, where the power of words can prevent “things going from bad to worse”, as Graciela Brodsky says. This is the ethics that psychoanalysis maintains in force.

 

To close, the echoes from the screening of Gerard Miller’s film “La Première Séance” in a young colleague from Alicante, member of LATIGO. In his “Shared Reflection”, Cristian Figueredo testifies to the decided desire for psychoanalysis on the part of the colleagues of the Seminario del Campo Freudiano in this city.

 

Faced with the absolute eye of contemporary unbelief, psychoanalysis appears as a commitment to the cause of desire, as a wager for that which is not seen.

 

In the next issues: the second and last part of the Presentation of Seminar VI by Jacques-Alain Miller, “After the DSM” by Eric Laurent from the debate “Who is afraid of DSM 5?” organized by the Franco-Argentinean Association of Psychiatry, and an interview with Mitra Kadivar, just to mention some of the texts that are forthcoming.

 

Bonne lecture!
