‘The father function revisited.
A knot-theoretical reading’

Presented by Stijn Vanheule

Keynote lecture for the Lacan Circle of Australia
International Conference
Melbourne, 2018

Starting with his structural approach in the 1950s and ending with his knot-theoretical move in the 1970s Lacan elaborates different perspectives on the father function. His classic view originates in the 1950s, when he suggests that the father is a symbolic operator. Yet, by the 1970s his ideas on what the father function entails have changed profoundly.
