Lacan on Feminine Enjoyment

 

In this one-day intensive course with Lorenzo Chiesa we will scrutinise Lacan’s notion of feminine enjoyment, or jouissance, especially as exposed in Seminar XX.

Lacan most famously speaks of feminine jouissance as an ‘Other enjoyment’ that lies ‘beyond the phallus’ and the symbolic order of language as fundamentally phallic. Against mainstream readings, we will particularly focus on how the Otherness at stake should not be confused with any form of transcendence. Woman’s jouissance ‘beyond the phallus’ does not stand for The Other and thus for yet another figure of God as a unity of substance. Woman’s jouissance ‘beyond the phallus’ instead amounts to a supplementary enjoyment that still refers to the symbolic order as its not-all, that is, its incompleteness.
