Monica Errity – Revis(it)ing Repetition

 

THE LETTER 58 Spring 2015, Pages 79-84

 

This paper seeks to uncover what lies behind Lacan’s conceptualisation of repetition as a ‘missed encounter with the real’ which he introduces in his 1964 seminar on the foundations of psychoanalysis. Through re-examining what Freud says about repetition in Beyond the Pleasure Principle it aims to give some foundation and grounding to what, on first reading, may appear enigmatic and elusive.

 

Keywords: repetition compulsion; pleasure principle; trauma; binding; death drive
