En los próximos días 17 y 18 de mayo dictaré en San Francisco (Ca.) un breve curso sobre temas que me atraen desde hace mucho y han interesado a los compañeros de la Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis of the the San Francisco Bay Area.
El día 17 aboradaré The invention of psychoanalysis con el siguiente argumento:
ON THE INVENTION OF PSYCHOANALYSIS
Nestor Braunstein, M.D. Mexico City
In this lecture Braunstein will articulate, perhaps for the first time in regard to psychoanalysis, four terms that can be useful in defining some essential aspects of the history, the theory and the practice of our discipline. These four terms dwell in the same neighborhood but at the same time they carry essential differences among them. To begin by ending the suspense, I will name them: Creation — discovery — production — invention.
As we can easily see, there is an element they share, something they have in common; they all belong to the same semantic field. In every case they refer to the emergence, or the appearing, of something new, something that is now present and was previously absent. The four of them are different ways of generating or engendering new “objects” whose nature can be ascribed to a vast variety of categories.
El sábado 18 el tema será On Memory: the Inventor
This seminar elucidates the question and function of memory from the perspective of repression, forgetting, the signifiers of death and their relationship to literature, history, philosophy, and the neurosciences. Braunstein argues that memory is a fiction that needs to be deconstructed.
