About the Author

Linda Clifton is an analyst and former Director of the Freudian school of Melbourne


Since Lacan, the transmission of psychoanalysis can consist neither of repeating the sayings of the great masters, nor of reinventing "psychoanalysis" as if it had never previously existed, nor of importing a given psychoanalysis into a new country or new problematics. All the papers of this book begin from a particular enigma of Lacanian discourse: a father who is a fiction; a clinic without any space to receive the patient, a speech reduced to an inaudible mumble; a visual art without any light. There are no solutions to these riddles, just a mapping to find one's way. The reader will be knotted in this reinvention of psychoanalysis.'- Dr Christian Fierens, psychoanalyst, member of Questionnement Psychanalytique, Association Freudienne de Belgique, and Association Lacanienne Internationale
