"Love and the Ego”
Véronique Voruz

For Freud love was either a vicissitude of ego libido which implied its reversibility between self and other, or had to do with a supporting Other. Either way, for Freud love had to do with narcissism and self preservation. By contrast, Lacan restored its dignity to love, situating it in the register of the encounter.  

Véronique Voruz is a member of the ECF, NLS and WAP and an Analyst of the School. She is the editor of The Lacanian Review. 

This video seminar will be broadcast online through Webex. Register with Juan Felipe Arango by emailing by December 1st. Login instructions will be sent out in advance to those who have registered. The event is free and open to all.


The Virtual Member Conversations take place one Wednesday every month at 8.30pm EST. Lacanian Compass Members will receive an invitation with the link prior to each meeting. A complete 2017 calendar is available here. For assistance, contact




Since March 15, 2009, Lacanian Compass has offered a series of video conference meetings that allow our members and close colleagues from across the United States to meet between our face to face encounters so as to overcome the great distances that separate us and allow us to work collectively on a regular basis.

Another feature of our meetings is that we invite colleagues from all of the different Schools of the World Association of Psychoanalysis to join us, to offer presentations, and thus allow us to engage globally with our colleagues.

The meetings are held in a series, on the theme of the upcoming Clinical Study Days.

The Video Conferences are open to Members of the Lacanian Compass and by invitation or permission.
