“This year (1961) more rigorously than ever, we are going to do topology, and it is necessary to do it because you cannot but do it at every instant, I mean, whether you are logicians or not, whether you know the meaning of the word topology or not.”
Jacques Lacan, Seminar IX, Identification

 

The Lacan Circle 2021 Winter Webinar explored Lacan’s topological models in Seminar IX: the torus, cross-cap and Klein bottle, and showed how these models paved the way for Lacan’s object a and the operation of a field beyond the imaginary and symbolic. The discussions were supported by clinical examples.
