Join us Thursday the 8th of September at 7:30pm (Berlin time/GMT+2) for my lecture on Lacan’s mirror stage organized by the Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Group.
The mirror stage is one of Jacques Lacan’s most well-received metapsychological models in the English-speaking world. In its many renditions Lacan elucidates the different forms of identification that lead to the construction of the ego but also uses it to illustrate many features in the work of analysis. In this lecture we will concentrate on three different renditions of Lacan’s mirror stage: the original lecture on the mirror stage, it’s development into the schema of two mirrors and the incorporation of the object a in the schema. The goal is to get acquainted with this important Lacanian notion that has been many times misconstrued by various psychoanalysts.
