Issue 62

We open Issue 62 of The Letter with The Sense of the Psychoanalytic Discourse the fifth chapter of Christian Fierens’ The Psychoanalytic Discourse. A Second Reading of L’Etourdit (2012) translated by Cormac Gallagher in 2014. Fierens remind us of Lacan’s optimism that the psychoanalytic discourse will conquer – an optimism based not on the social but ‘on the impossible in the structure itself. For it is the impossible in all its forms that sustains the discourse from which there is created the new social bond.’
