Logos: 20 years of psychoanalytic training in the Freudian School of Melbourne

David Pereira

"The Freudian School of Melbourne was founded in 1977, three years prior to the dissolution of l'Ecole Freudienne de Paris in 1980. At the conclusion of Lacan's Letter of Dissolution published in the first volume of the Papers of the Freudian School of Melbourne, Oscar Zentner writes: "I founded the School in 1977. My intention since then has been clear: to speak psychoanalysis without concessions in order to recover the Freudian experience, namely, the subversion of the subject." Read full Logos
