The Klein-Lacan Dialogues

A Round Table Discussion

The series of events which constituted ‘The Klein-Lacan Dialogues’ were a unique attempt to bring together psychoanalytic practitioners from different schools to engage with each other’s ideas in a serious way. The second book in the series has just been published. Chair of the Freud Museum, Dany Nobus, says:

This new collection of Klein-Lacan dialogues succeeds wonderfully in making rigid theoretical and clinical boundaries more permeable, not with a view to re-unifying two major strands of thought in contemporary psychoanalysis, but in an attempt to show how Klein was to some extent always already a proto-Lacanian, how Lacan borrowed more from Klein than he and his followers have been prepared to admit, and how both were essentially driven by the same clinical concerns.

The event will be in the form of a panel discussion between some of the distinguished contributors to the original debates and the subsequent book, to be followed by a drinks reception and launch at the Freud Museum.

The New Klein-Lacan Dialogues is published by Karnac (June, 2013). Available from the Museum shop through our Order & Collect service: order a copy now and collect it at the event!
