We will be reading from the recently published edition:

The Seminar of Jacques Lacan, Book V

It is available everywhere
including here in hardback
and here in paperback


We will begin at page 1, chapter 1:


“This year (1957-1958) I have taken ‘formations of the unconscious’ as my topic. Many of you are aware that the questions I raise here concern – directly, this time – the function in the unconscious of what in previous years I have been developing as the signifier.”


Jacques Lacan at his desk in 1957
