ON FEMININE SEXUALITY: THE LIMITS OF LOVE AND KNOWLEDGE

Offered in conjunction with the China American Psychoanalytic Alliance.  This six-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 format will be a Cartel—meaning we will read the material together and discuss it in our meeting.  Mandarin will be available for discussion but reading will be in English. 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.
