Abstract

CMOK to YOu To presents the 2015 email correspondence of the Serbian-born poet, art critic and playwright Nina Živančević and Canadian cultural theorist Marc James Léger. In December of 2014 Léger invited Živančević to contribute a text to the second volume of the book he was editing, The Idea of the Avant Garde – And What It Means Today. Taken with each other’s idiosyncrasies, their correspondence gradually shifted from amiable professional exchanges and the eventual failure to organize a scholarly event to that of collaborating on some kind of writing project. Several titles were attempted for the eventual book – Marshmallow Muse: The Exact and Irreverent Letters of MJL and NZ, The Orange Jelly Bean, or, I Already Am Eating from the Trash Can All the Time: The Name of This Trash Can Is Ideology, The Secreted Correspondence of Mme Chatelet and Voltaire, and I’m Taken: The E-Pistolary Poetry of Kit le Minx and Cad – but none of these proved to be more telling than CMOK, the Serbian word for kiss, which sums up the authors’ quest for “harmony” in an altogether imperfect world and literary medium. In this book, names of real people were changed in order to protect those who might otherwise be offended by the unguarded and absurdist commentary of its authors. Despite this fact, it is the fragility and elasticity of the writers’ superegos that is tested as they vacillate from personal registers to intellectual strata. At once a cis-avant-gardist’s exploration of anti-art and a poet’s claim to some weak form of autonomy, CMOK delights in both the pleasures of casual email and the sublime realizations of Jacques Lacan’s theory of sexuation. CMOK is a hybrid genre and a quest into the real of virtuality that defies the literary standards. Its authors, who never met, answer one another’s basic needs and questions, separated as they are by time zones and the ocean, but not culturally or spiritually.

Abstract

J'ai choisi pour thème « L'analyse, l'archive », évoquant ainsi en un même mot l'analyse des textes et le processus de la cure psychanalytique. L'analyse, l'archive, et non pas « psychanalyse de l'archive » ou « archive de la psychanalyse ». Le lien entre les trois conférences n'est pas apparent au premier abord ; pourtant, entre « Le pouvoir de l'archive », « Le stade du miroir » et « Le culte de soi et les nouvelles formes de souffrances psychiques », un fil rouge existe. Si, comme on le verra, le pouvoir de l'archive est d'autant plus fort que l'archive est absente, il existe bien un lien entre la première et la deuxième conférence. En effet, la théorie lacanienne du stade du miroir s'est développée depuis 1936 en se fondant sur une conférence dont le contenu a disparu : une conférence introuvable, retirée par son auteur des actes d'un congrès international qui se tenait à Marienbad. Par la suite, ce texte a dû sa place aux traces qu'il a laissées dans l'ensemble du corpus lacanien, c'est-à-dire à des fragments déposés par Lacan çà et là, puis reconstitués par l'historien, par moi en l'occurrence, à partir de témoignages et de notes. Quant à la question du culte de soi, elle a trait à la fois à l'archive et à la psychanalyse et, plus précisément, à l'émergence, durant le dernier quart du XXe siècle, d'une « archive de soi », d'un culte du narcissisme mettant au premier plan, contre et au-delà de la cure psychanalytique, une pratique de l'autoanalyse ou de l'autothérapie, fondée sur une valorisation de l'image de soi. Or, Lacan en avait saisi la dialectique dans sa fameuse conférence de 1936 sur « le stade du miroir ». Voilà donc le fil rouge qui unit ces trois interventions.

Abstract

Fin dai suoi esordi la psicoanalisi si è interessata ai conflitti e la sua storia è legata alle vicissitudini dell’impatto della guerra sui soggetti, nella forma specifica del trauma, nonché alla guerra come modalità del legame sociale. Questo volume raccoglie i contributi di psicoanalisti che si interrogano su quello che la guerra può insegnare alla psicoanalisi e su cosa la psicoanalisi può dire su di essa, provando a decifrarne le coordinate, e sul posto che essa ha nel discorso, cioè nella civiltà. La guerra infatti accompagna, e forse determina, lo sviluppo delle civiltà. Le sue forme si modificano e, oggi, essa appare nella forma del “senza limite”, conformemente alla modalità predominante nei nostri legami, configurando scenari inediti. Gli effetti sui soggetti, oggi come ieri, e il modo con cui questi possono essere trattati, sono ciò di cui si occupano gli analisti, orientati da Freud e da Lacan, considerando il trauma un fatto singolare, che non si presta a soluzioni universali, né tantomeno standardizzabili. Ma è compito degli psicoanalisti anche quello di delineare le coordinate fondamentali del nostro attuale “disagio della civiltà”, per poter contribuire alla lettura del posto che la guerra occupa nel nostro tempo, al di là di qualsiasi “facile ricetta” che si vorrebbe risolutiva.

Abstract

Sempre più spesso ci imbattiamo in giovani che manifestano nuove forme di disagio. Le classificazioni diagnostiche non mancano, anzi si aggiornano rapidamente e si moltiplicano in modo esponenziale sotto la categoria del “Disturbo di o della…”, che implicitamente rinvia alla necessità di trovare modi e mezzi per tacitarlo se non, addirittura, estirparlo. Genitori e Servizi sono spesso impotenti di fronte alle nuove forme del disagio contemporaneo, dove gli ideali che un tempo riuscivano in qualche modo a offrire delle soluzioni collettive o a temperarne l’angoscia hanno perso valore. Così il disagio si manifesta sempre più nella sua urgenza e l’unica soluzione possibile è la richiesta di interventi volti a “normalizzare” il comportamento del minore, interventi che spesso finiscono per acuire il disagio stesso e le modalità in cui ciascuno lo esprime. L’esperienza delle istituzioni che si rifanno alla psicoanalisi di Jacques Lacan rovesciano, invece, la prospettiva comune. Il disagio prima di tutto è una forma di appello, non un disturbo, e il comportamento che lo rivela è la parola, sebbene ridotta al torsolo, spesso mal formulata o espressa tramite agiti. Occorre ascoltarla nella sua declinazione singolare per farsi partner di ciascuno in modo unico, ritessendo relazioni di fiducia e sostenendo le invenzioni singolari che ognuno riesce a mettere in campo per trasformare il disagio in qualcosa d’altro. Quanto testimoniato in questo volume parte dalle esperienze di accoglienza di minori in diverse istituzioni, per introdurre una riflessione sul soggetto contemporaneo e abbozzare un discorso politico critico sulla spinta all’omologazione sempre più presente e offerta come l’unica possibile in una società che continua, invece, a dichiararsi democratica e globalizzata.

Abstract

Ausgehend vom Konzept des Mangels, der den Menschen grundlegend vom Tier unterscheidet, stellt das Buch dar, wie sich das dem Andern der Sprache ausgelieferte Subjekt gleichwohl orientieren kann. Der Bodenlosigkeit der Sprache stehen Körperbilder gegenüber, deren Ursprung im Andern des Spiegelbildes liegt, in dem sich das werdende Subjekt entdeckt. Seine Reflexion führt es auf seine unsichtbaren und körperlichen Seiten diesseits des Spiegels zurück; sie befähigt es auch zu Kreativität. Dabei fließen Körperbilder (Gestalten, Gesichter, Hände etc.) in verwandelten Formen als Matrix, als Schablone mit in Wahrnehmung, Verhalten, Erkenntnis, Schrift ein: Realität konstituiert sich als eine anthropomorphe. Ein abschließender Teil geht der Frage nach, wie zerstörte Körperbilder vor allem in Psychosen restrukturiert werden können.

Abstract

Why did France spawn the radical poststructuralist rejection of the humanist concept of 'man' as a rational, knowing subject? In this innovative cultural history, Carolyn J. Dean sheds light on the origins of poststructuralist thought, paying particular attention to the reinterpretation of the self by Jacques Lacan, Georges Bataille, and other French thinkers. Arguing that the widely shared belief that the boundaries between self and other had disappeared during the Great War helps explain the genesis of the new concept of the self, Dean examines an array of evidence from medical texts and literary works alike. The Self and Its Pleasures offers a pathbreaking understanding of the boundaries between theory and history.

Abstract

Jedes Kapitel dieses Buches entfaltet anhand eines Stückes Literatur ein Thema aus dem Liebesleben. Für die Psychoanalytikerin Jutta Prasse sind Henry James, Gottfried Keller, Johann Peter Hebel oder Charles Dickens Bundesgenossen bei der Erforschung des weiblichen und männlichen Begehrens, des Mutterideals, der Sexualität des Wissenschaftlers … Sie orientiert sich an Freud und Lacan und kommt doch ohne Fachsprache, ohne Jargon aus. Da sie den Freudschen Witz liebt, verbindet sie Seriosität und Komik, auch, wenn sie Tragisches und Rührendes behandelt. Der Leser kann sich bildend vergnügen, denn dieses Buch, dessen Autorin - unter Pseudonym - zugleich Übersetzerin literarischer Werke war, ist sehr gut zu lesen. Und es ist sehr persönlich geschrieben. Der Titel »Sprache und Fremdsprache« bezieht sich auf die Fremdheit unserer eigenen Sprache; sie ist uns nicht angeboren, doch nur durch sie können wir leben, begehren, lieben, träumen und begreifen.

Abstract

Mikrologien - das sind die Kleinigkeiten, die kleinen Dinge. Sie erscheinen oft als unbedeutend, niedlich, dem Übersehen preisgegeben. Aber erschöpft sich ihr Logos in dieser (scheinbaren) Schwäche? Die vorliegenden Aufsätze entdecken andere Potenziale des Kleinen. In Literatur und Philosophie wird das Grundlegende, das Störende, das Dichte, die fantastische Welthaltigkeit aufgespürt. Die Autoren stecken an exemplarischen Gegenständen einen historischen Raum vom 17. bis zum 21. Jahrhundert ab und erkunden das Kleine als motivische, formale, epistemische und poetologische Instanz. Die mikrologische Recherche zeigt, dass die keimhafte, monadische und atomistische Relation zum Großen und Ganzen die literarische und philosophische Einbildungskraft enorm provoziert hat. Der Band behandelt u.a. Arbeiten von Walter Benjamin, Adalbert Stifter, Samuel Beckett, Franz Kafka, Heinrich von Kleist und Virginia Woolf.

Abstract

Water acquisition, storage, allocation and distribution are intensely contested in our society, whether, for instance, such issues pertain to a conflict between upstream and downstream farmers located on a small stream or to a large dam located on the border of two nations. Water conflicts are mostly studied as disputes around access to water resources or the formulation of water laws and governance rules. However, explicitly or not, water conflicts nearly always also involve disputes among different philosophical views. The contributions to this edited volume have looked at the politics of contested knowledge as manifested in the conceptualisation, design, development, implementation and governance of large dams and mega-hydraulic infrastructure projects in various parts of the world. The special issue has explored the following core questions: Which philosophies and claims on mega-hydraulic projects are encountered, and how are they shaped, validated, negotiated and contested in concrete contexts? Whose knowledge counts and whose knowledge is downplayed in water development conflict situations, and how have different epistemic communities and cultural-political identities shaped practices of design, planning and construction of dams and mega-hydraulic projects? The contributions have also scrutinised how these epistemic communities interactively shape norms, rules, beliefs and values about water problems and solutions, including notions of justice, citizenship and progress that are subsequently to become embedded in material artefacts.
