This 10th volume in the Scilicet series is part of the preparatory work for the XIVth Congress of the World Association of Psychoanalysis on the theme “Everyone is Mad”.

It contains more than one hundred texts, exploring various aspects of this theme, each one the product of the work in a cartel by members of the Schools making up the World Association.

The volume also carries Lacan’s text “Lacan For Vincennes!” in which this provocative assertion can be found and a text by Jacques-Alain Miller elaborating some of the implications of this aphorism for the contemporary psychoanalytic clinic.

The English version of Scilicet for the NLS is now available for purchase via Amazon in each of the countries of the NLS. Members of the NLS registered for the Congress of the WAP will also receive a digital copy.

Purchase a copy via 

your own country's Amazon website!
