CONGRESS SPECIAL N°4

 

SUNDAY 21 MAY

 

 

FOUR CURRENT FORMS OF DISCONTENT

 

 

2 – THE BODY

Chaired and facilitated by Dominique Holvoet

 

Man has a body and he has just the one

Man speaks – the body enjoys

 

It is truly the encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table. 

(cf  Lautréamont, The Songs of Maldoror)

 

Lacan says it better and opens new paths:

 

« LOM, LOM de base, LOM cahun corps et nan-na Kun.

 Faut le dire comme ça : il ahun… et non : il estun… (cor/niché).

 C’est l’avoir et pas l’être qui le caractérise.

 Il y a de l’avoiement dans le qu’as-tu ? dont il s’interroge fictivement d’avoir la réponse toujours.

 J’ai ça, c’est son seul être. »*


It struggles along and once in a while it gets sung.

For how can one know where jouissance holes up?

First by constructing fictions and when it bites: ouch! I've got it…; or the other way around

“That”: the body and also the event


Three presentations about this discordance and its symptoms will be given and discussed


Lacan J., « Joyce le symptôme », Autres écrits, Paris, Seuil, 2001, p. 565 (for the English translation see “Joyce the symptom”, TLR 5pp.13-14).
