LACAN AND KAFKA: Knowledge, Enjoyment and the Big Other
Intensive Day Course
There are only three passing references to Kafka in the entirety of Lacan’s vast oeuvre. In this one-day intensive course, we will scrutinise these passages in their context and show how they can nonetheless throw light on key aspects of Lacanian psychoanalysis.

More generally, through a comparative reading of Lacan’s Seminars and Kafka’s The Castle and The Burrow, we will introduce a number of pivotal psychoanalytic notions such as the object a, the big Other, the fantasy of absolute knowledge, and surplus-enjoyment.

The course will close with an outline of Lacan’s epistemological, ethical, and political stance in his visceral opposition to the so-called university discourse, the contemporary late-capitalist Castle.

Silver Sunday House Tour
Freud and the Later Life
“I never realized that the older one grows the more there is to do. The idea of peaceful old age seems as much of a legend as that of happy youth.”
Freud in a letter to Ernst and Lucie Freud, 20th December 1921

Throughout his life Freud feared old age and infirmity. He was also sceptical about treating older patients, arguing that above the age of fifty “the elasticity of the mental processes, on which the treatment depends, is as a rule lacking” (1905). Yet his own life is an inspiring story of tremendous courage, extraordinary creativity and openness until the very last days in London, while his thought-provoking writings on memory, fantasy and desire shed new and interesting light on the joys and sorrows of later life.

On the first Sunday of October, the Freud Museum joins the nation-wide celebrations of old age called Silver Sunday, by offering a free house tour, a dedicated session and on-site activities dedicated to exploring Freud’s intriguing and often contradictory views on the “gruesome business of getting old” (1935). Freud’s own words, from his works and personal letters, will be accompanying the visitors throughout the day.

As part of the tour, visitors will be given the opportunity to see images of the objects from Freud’s collection associated with the theme, such as figures of old Chinese sages and scholars occupying prominent positions around his desk, or the original gifts he received on each of his ‘painful’ birthdays. The object that often sparks particular curiosity among older visitors is a nineteenth century jade screen, featuring a Chinese character representing shou – longevity. It sits centre-stage on Freud’s desk and is likely to have been the second object smuggled out of Vienna by Princess Marie Bonaparte before Freud’s escape from the Nazis in 1938 (the first one being the figurine of the Greek goddess Athena).
