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.
“In the summer of 1913, during his vacation in northern Italy, Sigmund Freud went walking with two friends, one of whom, the poet, complained that he could not enjoy the scenery because the idea that all this beauty would vanish did not cease to assail him. Freud tried to convince him otherwise.”

“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
