Today’s Topic and Guests
Jacques Marie Émile Lacan – was born in 1901, was an admirable student, and excelled especially at Latin and philosophy. He studied at the Faculté de Médecine de Paris, and worked with patients suffering from délires ý deux, or “automatism,” a condition in which the patient believes his actions, writing, or speech, are controlled by an outside and omnipotent force. Lacan wrote his thesis for his doctorat d’état in 1932 titled De la psychose paranoïaque dans ses rapports avec la personnalité, in which he drew a connection between phsychiatric medicine and psychoanalysis, In his lifetime, Lacan extended the field of psychoanalysis into philosophy, linguistics, literature and mathematics, through close readings of Freud and continued clinical practice.
