“Interpretation in the Era of the Speaking Body"
By Anne Lysy, AME (ECF, NLS, WAP)

“Analyzing the parlêtre is no longer quite the same as analyzing the unconscious in Freud's sense, nor even the unconscious structured like a language", J.-A. Miller emphasizes, in "The Unconscious and the Speaking Being". When we aim at the real of the sinthome, which is a body event, and which precisely resists deciphering, what kind of interpretative practice is there to invent that is at the height of this real?

Anne Lysy AME, is a psychoanalyst in Brussels and a Member of the ECF, NLS, WAP. She holds a PhD in Literature & Philosophy. Anne teaches at the Section clinique de Brussels and is Coordinator of the Psychoanalytic Clinical Program in Ghent.

This video seminar will be broadcast through Webex. Email Juan Felipe Arango to register at by October 18th. Login instructions will be sent to those who have registered. This 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.
