Introduction to the Reading of Jacques Lacan’s Seminar X (Angoisse) Parts I & II : April, May & June 2004 : Jacques-Alain Miller

by Julia Evans on April 28, 2004

In April, May and June 2004, J.-A. Miller comments on Seminar X, On Anxiety, which had just been published (in French). Two texts collate this work and are of the highest interest for us since they highlight the “body with organs” in opposition to the body as a surface of the mirror stage. We present here the first of two fragments which are like two appetizers for these texts.
