ON FEMININE SEXUALITY: THE LIMITS OF LOVE AND KNOWLEDGE

Offered in conjunction with the China American Psychoanalytic Alliance.

This twelve meeting course is designed to introduce the work of Jacques Lacan as it relates to the Chinese, Freudian and Lacanian theories of the feminine. We will read Jacques-Alain Miller’s translation of Lacan’s Seminar Twenty (XX) and Chang Tung-sun’s paper ‘A Chinese Philosopher’s Theory of Knowledge’. The focus will be on the theories of knowledge and truth in Chinese and Western thought and how these ideas relate to the Lacanian concept of the feminine. The course looks at Psychoanalytic theory within Chinese Culture. We look forward to exploring Lacan’s work with you.
