Paradigms of Jouissance : 24th, 31st March & 7th April 1999 (Paris VIII) : Jacques-Alain Miller

by Julia Evans on March 24, 1999

These three lessons were delivered as part of the course of Jacques-Alain Miller Orientation lacanienne, III-I, “Experience du reel dans la cure analytique”, (24, 31 March and 7 April 1999). This teaching took place under the auspices of the Department of Psychoanalysis at the University of Paris VIII. As Miller says at the outset, these lectures were themselves based on a series of lectures given in Los Angeles shortly before. Those lectures must surely have been given in English, but no record of them seems to be available.
