Lacan for Multitudes: Drives and sexuality in Lacan

Manuel Asensi

08 Jul. 2014

Starting from the Lacanian notion of ‘the ghost’, we will explore what Lacan himself called ‘the deconstruction of the (Freudian) drive’, in order to highlight his conception of sexuality and its roles. This will allow us to introduce the difference between joissance and pleasure, and to understand the virtues of sadomasochism. What is the relationship between love and sex? Why does Lacan represent the most radical atheist position in 20th and 21st century philosophy? And, lastly, to finish up for the time being, we will analyse the notions of the scopic function and of perversions.
