"When I decided to explore the question of Witz, or wit, with you this year, I undertook a small enquiry. It will come as no surprise at all that I began by questioning a poet. This is a poet who introduces the dimension of an especially playful wit that runs through his work, as much in his prose as in more poetic forms, and which he brings into play even when he happens to be talking about mathematics, for he is also a mathematician. I am referring to Raymond Queneau. While we were exchanging our first remarks on the matter he told me a joke. It?s a joke about exams, about the university entrance exams, if you like. We have a candidate and we have an examiner. - 'Tell me', says the examiner, 'about the battle of Marengo.' The candidate pauses for a moment, with a dreamy air. 'The battle of Marengo ...' Bodies everywhere! It's terrible ... Wounded everywhere! It's horrible ... 'But', says the examiner, 'Can't you tell me anything more precise about this battle' 'The candidate thinks for a moment, then replies, 'A horse rears up on its hind legs and whinnies. 'The examiner, surprised, seeks to test him a little further and says, 'In that case, can you tell me about the battle of Fontenoy?' Oh!' says the candidate, 'a horse rears up on its hind legs and whinnies.' The examiner, strategically, asked the candidate to talk about the battle of Trafalgar. The candidate replies, 'Dead everywhere! A blood bath ... Wounded everywhere! Hundreds of them ...' 'But my good man, can't you tell me anything more precise about this battle?' 'A horse ...' 'Excuse me, I would have you note that the battle of Trafalgar is a naval battle.' 'Whoah! Whoah!' says the candidate. 'Back up, Neddy!' The value of this joke is, to my mind, that it enables us to decompose, I believe, what is at stake in a witticism. (Extract from Chapter VI)"--

My teaching by Jacques Lacan( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in French and English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bringing together three previously unpublished lectures presented to the public by Lacan at the height of his career, 'My Teaching' is a clear, concise introduction to the thought of the influential psychoanalyst. Drawing on examples from popular culture and common sense, this lively book explores a range of Lacan's most important ideas, including his debt to Freud, linguistic unconsciousness and sexuality in its relation to psychoanalytic truth. Engaging, witty and personal, 'My Teaching' offers a rare opportunity to engage directly with Lacan's own general explanation of his teaching to a non-psychoanalytic audience

On the names-of-the-Father by Jacques Lacan( Book )

27 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What astonishing success the Name-of-the-Father has had! Everyone finds something in it. Who one's father is isn't immediately obvious, hardly being visible to the naked eye. Paternity is first and foremost determined by one's culture. As Lacan said, "The Name-of-the-Father creates the function of the father." But then where does the plural stem from? It isn't pagan, for it is found in the Bible. He who speaks from the burning bush says of Himself that He doesn't have just one Name. In other words, the Father has no proper Name. It is not a figure of speech, but rather a function. The Father has as many names as the function has props. What is its function? The religious function par excellence, that of tying things together. What things? The signifier and the signified, law and desire, thought and the body. In short, the symbolic and the imaginary. Yet if these two become tied to the real in a three-part knot, the Name-of-the-Father is no longer anything but mere semblance. On the other hand, if without it everything falls apart, it is the symptom of a failed knotting. -- Jacket

Transference by Jacques Lacan( Book )

26 editions published between 1961 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alcibiades attempted to seduce Socrates, he wanted to make him, and in the most openly avowed way possible, into someone instrumental and subordinate to what? To the object of Alcibiades' desire - ágalma, the good object. I would go even further. How can we analysts fail to recognize what is involved? He says quite clearly: Socrates has the good object in his stomach. Here Socrates is nothing but the envelope in which the object of desire is found. It is in the order to clearly emphasize that he is nothing but this envelope that Alcibiades tries to show that Socrates is desire's serf in his relations with Alcibiades, that Socrates is enslaved to Alcibiades by his desire. Although Alcibiades was aware that Socrates desired him, he wanted to see Socrates' desire manifest itself in a sign, in order to know that the other - the object, ágalma - was at his mercy. Now, it is precisely because he failed in this undertaking that Alcibiades disgraces himself, and makes of his confession something that is so effectively laden. The daemon of [Aidós], Shame, about which I spoke to you before in this context, is what intervenes here. This is what is violated. The most shocking secret is unveiled before everyone; the ultimate mainspring of desire, which in love relations must always be more or less dissimulated, is revealed - its aim is the fall of the Other, A, into the other, a." -- from back cover
The triumph of religion : preceded by Discourse to Catholics by Jacques Lacan( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freud, an old style Enlightenment optimist, believed religion was merely an illusion that the progress of the scientific spirit would dissipate in the future. Lacan did not share this belief in the slightest; he thought, on the contrary, that the true religion, Roman Catholicism, would take in everyone in the end, pouring bucketsful of meaning over the ever more insistent and unbearable real that we, in our times, owe to science.--
