Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on Lacan's ideas about memory and how these may intersect with some issues in the phenomenological tradition. The thread of memory can guide us through the labyrinth of Lacan's categories, the imaginary, symbolic, and real — but not without difficulties, which must be confronted in order to clarify a few technical details along the way, above all the twist that leads from the “Rome Discourse” to Seminar XI, from the Other to the object, along the path of the transference.

Keywords: Jacques Lacan; memory; Seminar XI; Rome Discourse; tranference
