Few figures have influenced the modern conception of the subject more than Sigmund Freud. In this doctoral seminar we explore the writings of Freud, followed by those of one of his most influential interpreters, Jacques Lacan. Seminar themes include: the structure of the psyche; the unconscious; castration and lack; the symbolic order; neurosis; desire; enjoyment; and sex. Additional readings drawn from the work of Joan Copjec, Achille Mbembe, and Alenka Zupančič.
