Lacan Circle Reading Group: Freud
The Interpretation of Dreams
Convened by Ellen Smith
This group completed a full reading of Dreams during 2022
“There is often a passage in even the most thoroughly interpreted dream which has to be left obscure; this is because we become aware during the work of interpretation that at that point there is a tangle of dream-thoughts which cannot be unraveled and which moreover adds nothing to our knowledge of the content of the dream. This is the dream’s navel, the spot where it reaches down into the unknown”
The Interpretation of Dreams, The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, Vol. 5, p. 525
We read from the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, translated by James Strachey.
