What Do We Treat In Psychoanalysis?
Considerations on Symptom and Fantasy
Gabriela Moreira

June 8th, 2024
11:00am - 12:30pm PST

This session of the seminar will discuss how psychoanalysis subverts the medical clinic with a conception that symptoms are an inevitable consequence of the fact that humans speak. So, how does the psychoanalyst direct the cure when symptoms are not abnormalities to be eradicated from one’s life? To respond, we will explore the notion of fantasy, the fixed way the subject encountered to derive satisfaction from the object, which also determines their view of reality.
