In 1975 Lacan travelled to the United States for a series of talks at East-Coast universities.


During one intense week from 24 November to 2 December of that year, Lacan gave two lectures at Yale University in New Haven, followed by lectures at Columbia University and MIT. The first of the Yale lectures, “Lecture on the Body”, the Columbia University lecture, “Lecture on the Symptom”, and the short text, “There Are Four Discourses”, were translated into English for publication in the first and only issue (2013) of the journal Culture/Clinic.


We will read and comment on these three texts, beginning with “There Are Four Discourses”, over the three weeks of our Winter Webinar. All texts can be found at


Anyone can study with the Lacan Circle, there is no fee, and everyone is welcome
