Conviene que nos detengamos en ese desfiladero, en ese paso estrecho, en el que Freud mismo se detiene y retrocede con un horror motivado. Tú amarás a tu prójimo como a ti mismo - este mandamiento le parece inhumano. ¿No puede decirse que Sade nos enseña una tentativa de descubrir las leyes del espacio del prójimo como tal? -ese prójimo en tanto lo más cercano al que tenem ...more

Recommends it for: mental masochists
Seminar VII was my summer project so it is difficult distill its essence. These talks overflow with intellectual wine, with creative liquor. They are never neat or easy. If you understood everything Lacan said, you would never be challenging your assumptions. His style takes one beyond the limit of the signifying chain. That is why it is so hard to summarize his thought; it goes against the grain of its surface.

The first part of the seminar positions itself in relation to "Das Ding" or the Freud

ingilizceye baştan tercüme edecek olsam ethics of tragedy derdim. nietzsche dememek için freud, dasein dememek için antigone kitabı. derrida hallaç pamuğu gibi atıyor zaten bunu görüp. ne hallaç mı?
This wasn't what I was expecting at all. >:)

I am totally overwhelmed by Lacan's provocative discussion on the moral/moralistic problems of ethics. I think this is the best two seminars Lacan has ever presented (the other is the seminar 20).
I can't entirely justify the 5-star review, but because Lacan is so outlandish (in the best possible way) and dense, I'm not sure that most people could. Still, his ideas are fascinating.
I'm too dumb to understand this book. Rating: inconclusive.

Jacques-Marie-Émile Lacan was a French psychoanalyst, psychiatrist, and doctor, who made prominent contributions to the psychoanalytic movement. His yearly seminars, conducted in Paris from 1953 until his death in 1981, were a major influence in the French intellectual milieu of the 1960s and 1970s, particularly among post-structuralist thinkers.

Lacan's ideas centered on Freudian concepts such as
