Free & open to all - no registration

This workshop will trace the development of the theoretical and clinical transformations of Freud’s ideas on the role of the father that progressively gave rise to the concept of paternal function. It will  discuss the distinction between the murdered father and the dead father, and show how the shift from the murdered to the dead father represents the attempt to regulate desire and institutes the sacrifice of sexuality. Two clinical examples are discussed.

This workshop anticipates the public lecture on January 23rd. The themes are developed further in a subsequent workshop on March 20th.

Rosine Jozef Perelberg (Visiting Professorial Fellow in Psychoanalysis 2011/12) will be presenting a series of workshops  and a public lecture that are open to staff and students from across the college. Workshops will be  based around the theme of Maternal and Paternal Functions in Psychoanalysis and Legend
