In April, 2010, the Members of the World Association of Psychoanalysis will meet for their Seventh Congress in Paris, France.  The theme for the meeting is “Semblants and Sinthome.”

These themes are drawn largely from the last teaching of Jacques Lacan.  While much of the earliest work of Lacan has been elaborated and published in English, much of Lacan’s later work is not available in English.  Furthermore, English language work by psychoanalysts on concepts from the later work by Lacan is not readily available.

In an effort to address this  gap and to provide a reference tool for psychoanalysts in the United States and throughout the English speaking world, we have created this blog on the theme of semblants and sinthome.

We will publish texts on these two topics; we will publish bibliographies on these topics; and, we will alert our readers to texts available in paper or on the web on these topics.  Our focus will be exclusively on texts in English.

We first of all refer our readers to the texts available on the website of the Congress.
