Presentation: The Lacanian Review No. 8: ‘Nightmare’

upcoming year marks the 120th anniversary of the
dream as royal road of the
unconscious. Through dreams, fragments of speech are cobbled together to
construct a superhighway of signifying overpasses, byways, and detours around
what remains “off-the-grid,” unspeakable. Yet the horror of the dream appears
as the nightmare which makes our bodies bolt
upright in bed. If the Freudian dream was paved with fictions of desire, the
Lacanian nightmare returns us to the real of the drive, the impossibility to
see, with eyes open or closed. Today we encounter contemporary life just as
fragmented and terrifying as the nightmare that dreams always cloaked.

In this issue, Jacques-Alain Miller highlights the lost object of
language, revealing the topology of holes in dreams. A new translation of
Jacques Lacan leads us to a moment of awakening via the dream of psychoanalysis.
Éric Laurent orients
the axes of interpretation that guide contemporary clinical practice. Analysts
of the School put nightmares to work. Following testimonies of the pass,
Marie-Hélène Brousse returns to the real that does not stop being written
through the dream-principle of the unconscious. And as the artist precedes the
analyst in their knowledge of the unconscious, TLR presents a dialogue with the poet, Kenneth Goldsmith and
artist, Cheryl Donegan, who follow a metonymical drift between the dream of art
making and the nightmare of art in the world.


About The Lacanian Review

The Lacanian Review is a semiannual print and digital journal published in English. TLR offers newly established texts by
Jacques Lacan, Jacques-Alain Miller, and prominent international figures of the
Lacanian Orientation. This series features testimonies of the pass, new
theoretical developments in Lacanian psychoanalysis, dialogues with other
discourses, 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 New Lacanian School (NLS) and the World Association of
Psychoanalysis (WAP).
