On Freud’s “Trieb” and the Psychoanalyst’s Desire : 7th January 1964 (Rome) : Jacques Lacan

by Julia Evans on January 7, 1964

Summary of comments at a colloquium, entitled “Technique and Casuistry,”  held at the University of Rome from January 7 to 12,1964. JL remarks : I avoided spelling out too quickly, in a way which would not have been controllable, what I have since articulated concerning the drive in my lectures at  the École Normale Supèrieure, which began several days later. (Seminar XI)  

It was published in Tecnica e Casistica: Tecnica, Escatologia e Casistica (Rome: Instituto di Studi Filosofici. 1964)

Published p417-420 of ‘Reading Seminars I and II, Lacan’s Return to Freud’, editors Richard Feldstein, Bruce Fink, Maire Jaanus, SUNY Press 1996. Also published in the Écrits : 1966.
