The Lacanian Review


Order Here

  The Lacanian Review, the English language journal of the New Lacanian School (NLS) and the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP), publishes newly established texts by Jacques Lacan, Jacques-Alain Miller, and prominent international figures of the Lacanian Orientation. This semiannual print series features testimonies of the pass, new theoretical developments in Lacanian psychoanalysis, clinical cases, dialogues with prominent academics, and articles on contemporary culture, politics, art and science. Each issue explores a theme intersecting the symptoms of our era and emerging work in the NLS.


  The Lacanian Review (TLR) aims to support the formation of analysts and stimulate dialogue among and beyond the Schools of the WAP. Through the publication of several distinct modes of psychoanalytic writing, TLR addresses different aspects of the orientation of the WAP:


— ORIENTATION: texts by Jacques Lacan, Jacques-Alain Miller, and authors of the Freudian Field that orient our research.

—THEMATIC FOCUS: crucial contemporary problems and symptoms that are ciphered through the analytic experience.

— DIALOGUES: interviews which engage discourses outside of psychoanalysis - science, art, university and politics.

—FORMATIONS OF THE ANALYST: writings that demonstrate the position of analytic training in the Lacanian Orientation of the WAP, which is always marked by a singularity that distinguishes it from training in other psychoanalytic groups.

—THE PASS: testimonies of the pass, one of the “two lungs” of the School, transmit a reduction of the singular results of each analysis, presented by analysts that choose to undergo this procedure.

—SUPERVISION/CONTROL: texts on the uses of supervision as a crucial support for the efforts of the analyst in the analytic experience.

—CARTELS: texts produced from the work of the Cartels of the NLS. The Cartel, as a mode of psychoanalytic inquiry invented by Lacan, allows each of its members to produce a modification in relation to analytic knowledge.

—NLS & WAP CONGRESSES: topics and papers from the annual Congresses of the NLS and WAP, which include clinical case constructions and theoretical elaborations.


We hope our readers will gain some knowledge about the Lacanian Orientation and that these texts will provoke questions and stimulate one’s own desire for psychoanalysis.
