Narratives of love

Borossa, Julia (2013) Narratives of love. JCFAR: Journal of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research, 23 . ISSN 1351-5470 [Article]


By drawing the reader's attention to the frame of Plato's Symposium, this essay argues that it is not only in its subject matter, love and its vicissitudes, that this text resonates so well with the concerns of psychoanalysis, but that in in its very form, or rather in the fit between form and content, in its particular narration of the narratives of love, it may shed light on the problem of the transmission of psychoanalysis and on the question of authority and transference. Specifically, the essay goes on to examine the process of the Pass, in its original context of the Ecole Freudienne, in terms of a complex web of love relations and narratives of love, whose primary addressee was Lacan himself.
