"It will undertake to publish those principles from which analytic praxis is to receive its statute within science. A statute which, however idiosyncratic it must be recognised to be, cannot be that of an ineffable experience."

Ecritique Vol. 10

Volume 10

Editors: Madeline Andrews, Ben McGill, Michael Plastow, Christiane Weller

In the papers of the tenth volume of Écritique, the affected body in art and in psychoanalysis is given due consideration: the body in the plastic arts vis-à-vis the body in psychoanalysis; the body poeticised, as event; the body-ideal contra the fleshly, discursive, body; the de-animated body of infanticide and the mortal body in symbolic extension insisting as an inheritance from the dead. Jon Kettle writes of the intransitive demand, specific to psychoanalysis, which articulates itself through and with bodies in the gap between demand and desire...

Volume 9

Editors: Madeline Andrews, Ben McGill, Michael Plastow, Christiane Weller

In the present volume of Écritique, we present more of the unfinished ‘business’ of psychoanalysis, which, as writing, does not eschew what is inevitably missed by words or theory. Included are papers that address how this might come to pass in the impossible task of translation, at the interface of psychoanalysis and psychiatry, in the ‘science’ of anthropology and in a testimonial act following the end of an analysis. These papers speak to the fact that transmission is a work born of the necessity of a theory...

Volume 8

Editors: Madeline Andrews, Ben McGill, Michael Plastow, Christiane Weller

A number of the papers published here approach this clinic of the not-all by speaking of aspects of the work of the School: the activities of the presentation of patients and psychoanalysis of children are prominent amongst our papers on this occasion. And it is also propitious that we publish a paper by Guy Le Gaufey who will be a guest of the Freudian School of Melbourne in August 2011, with whom we will work, amongst other things, his text on Lacan’s Notall.



Volume 7

Editors: Madeline Andrews, Ben McGill, Michael Plastow, Christiane Weller

Écritique, now in its seventh volume, introduces a new format, having changed from a paper circular to a web-based periodical. Écritique: Letters of the Freudian School of Melbourne, School of Lacanian Psychoanalysis, will continue to be accessible to local and international readers of psychoanalysis, through the internet at regular intervals. Previous volumes will also be accessible on the website of The Freudian School of Melbourne.




Volume 6

Editors: Tine Norregaard-Arroyo, Sarah Jones, Ben McGill, Christiane Weller

The title of Lacan’s later paper, Lituraterre, is a construction of a new word, combined from litura – erasure, and terre – earth, which affects a play of the letter. The 'practice of the letter' is articulated here in terms of an enactment of the ‘erasure of no trace which is before’.15 For Freud the letter of the unconscious was associated with an impression, hidden in the mark of what carries a chronology of the primary, whereas for Lacan the letter is a consequence and an effect of language.



Volume 5

Editors: Tine Norregaard-Arroyo, Sarah Jones, Madeline Andrews, Ben McGill

This year the editorial committee has engaged in the work of a cartel addressing questions around the position of the father in psychoanalysis. The cartel was a device invented by Lacan to redirect the transference beyond the ideals of the Subject Supposed of Knowledge, towards the transference of work for each one. This runs counter to the transference of the group, which adheres to a set of ideals. It is from this point of the transference of work that a School of psychoanalysis sustains its ongoing reworking of the psychoanalytic discourse, through the particular transference each subject holds with psychoanalysis.
