The New Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis

The New Lacanian School (NLS) is one of seven Schools of Psychoanalysis of the World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP). With three other European Schools (France, Spain and Italy) it is a member of the EuroFederation of Psychoanlysis (EFP), an association that oversees the development of psychoanalysis in Europe and countries close to it. The Lacan Circle of Australia is an affiliate of the New Lacanian School.


The Lacanian Review Online is a current, prolific and social media savvy publication of the NLS. Students and members of its associated schools publish interpretations of world affairs, clinical issues, psychoanalytic history and current crises.

We Shall Build Up Again, Jorge Assef.

“But of which real does one speak?
Is it of perceived reality, lived reality, fantasised reality, digital hyper-reality,
or is it of a real that cannot be perceived but can be conceived, be logified –
of a real that truly exists?”

Clotilde Leguil, Truth, Post-Truth, Real. The Lacanian Review #7, 2019
