Carol Owens is an Irish psychoanalyst, clinical supervisor, and Lacanian scholar. She has lectured and published extensively on Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis, and has edited, co-edited, authored, and co-authored several volumes on Lacanian psychoanalysis as applied to the clinic, culture and society. Her most recent book is Psychoanalysis and the Small Screen The Year the Cinemas Closed (with Sarah Meehan O'Callaghan, Routledge, 2024). She is the series editor for Studying Lacan's Seminars, the first dedicated series on Lacan's seminars. She is a member of APPI, APCS, and an affiliate member of CP-UK.
Studying Lacan's Seminar VII offers a contemporary, critically informed set of analyses of Lacan's ethics seminar and astute reflections about what Lacan's ethics offers to the field of psychoanalytic thought today.
The volume interrogates the seminar with fresh voices and situated curiosities and perspectives, making for a compellingly exciting range of explorations of the crucial matters related to an ethics of psychoanalysis. The chapters question and tease out the paradoxes Lacan draws attention to in his seminar of 19591960, and in addition, they offer radical engagements with the seminar in light of theories of racism, inequality, capitalism, education, and subjectivity. The key elements in Lacan's seminar are explained, debated, and reconsidered with Antigone, das Ding, and the inevitable ne céder pas sur son désir duly unpacked, examined, and ruminated upon.
Studying Lacan's Seminar VII will be of interest to psychoanalytic scholars and students of Lacanian psychoanalysis, as well as psychoanalytic therapists and analysts. It will also be of interest to scholars and students of politics, philosophy, and studies at the intersections of racism, film, feminism, sociology, gender, and queer theory.
