InForm: Seminar is an informal and (hopefully!) informative seminar delivered in a podcast format. The content of the seminar will focus on the ongoing process of the formation of an analyst, and on what it is like to live and work analytically. The seminar is delivered by Neil Gorman, who is a practicing Lacanian Analyst and an Associate Professor at the Aurora University School of Education & Social Work.
InForm: Seminar is a companion to the InForm: Podcast, which is a podcast of informal and informative conversations and interviews Neil Gorman does with other members of the analytic community.
IFS-005 | Chapter 2, The Freudian Unconscious & Ours
In this podcast episode, I cover chapter 2 of Lacan's Seminar XI: The Four Fundamentals of Psychoanalysis.
When we read this chapter, we will see Lacan start to cover the unconscious in this chapter. The main focus is on talking about the Freudian unconscious, and some time is spent covering the unconscious that is "structured like a language" (i.e., the unconscious as Lacan thinks of it at this moment in his teaching).
IFS-004 | An Addendum...
In this episode of InForm: Seminar, I respond to some listener questions and talk a bit more about the difference between psychoanalytic training v. psychoanalytic formation. I also say more about treating the real with the symbolic.
IFS-003 | Chapter 1, Excommunication: The Main Points
In this episode, I cover the first chapter in Lacan's Seminar XI: The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis. Those concepts are: (1) the unconscious, (2) repetition, (3) transference, & (4) the drive.
IFS-002 | What are We Going to Be Covering?
In this episode/session of InForm: Seminar, I introduce what I'll be covering in the first season --Lacan's Seminar XI - The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis. I talk about why I picked this, about the difficulty of reading Lacan, and how I plan to offer up my reading of this text.
IFS-001 | Pilot Episode | What is InForm: Seminar?
This is the first episode of what I hope will become a somewhat regular thing that I do. It is called InForm: Seminar, and it will be a companion to InForm: Podcast. However, unlike InForm: Podcast, which is always a conversation between at least one other person and me, InForm: Seminar will be just me talking (maybe teaching?) about some aspect of psychoanalysis.
