[ecrea] CFP: Integral Transmissions: A Dictionary of Lacanian Mathemes and Topologies

Mon Jul 27 10:51:59 GMT 2015

/Integral Transmissions: A Dictionary of Lacanian Mathemes and
Topologies/ is an experimental publication that aims to provide a
comprehensive catalogue of each of the key Lacanian mathemes, formulae,
and topologies introduced over the course of Lacan’s teaching. Lacan
believed that mathemes offered an “integral transmission” of
psychoanalytic doctrine, even while they could not be transmitted
“purely.” In 1971, two years after Lacan gave name to the matheme, he
claimed: “[they are named] mathemes [...] we haven’t the slightest idea
what they mean, but they are integrally transmitted. Nevertheless, they
are not transmitted without the help of language, and that’s what makes
the whole thing shaky.” Yet, these strange inscriptions and topologies
have the capacity to “rip us away from the imaginary function.”

The editor is inviting authors to submit their own dictionary entry for
any number of schemas or topologies, consisting of approximately
1500-1700 words. Authors may contact (Duane.Rousselle /at/
<mailto:(Duane.Rousselle /at/> to secure an entry.

Thank you,

Dr. Duane Rousselle <>
