Knotting Seminars

KNOTTINGS 2012-2013


Concept of ‘Knottings

The ‘Knottings’ Seminar of the NLS, has the function –as its name suggests- of weaving the working ties within the whole of the School, in a combinatory way that pierces bilateral ties. Organised by the Executive Committee of the NLS, it brings together colleagues from the 5 Societies, plus the Polish groups. The axis of the Knottings is the Congress of the School.

The Knottings allow other voices of psychoanalysis in the Lacanian way–which is one-, to be heard. Their richness lies in this confrontation of languages at the heart of the most heterogeneous of the Schools of the WAP. This diversity is homologous to our object’s matter itself.

In each location, three papers will be presented and discussed: a theoretical introduction by a member of the Executive Committee, two clinical presentations, by one member of the local group and by a guest from another group. The President of the local group is responsible for chairing and reporting.
