"The Ordinary Psychoses and the Others. Towards the 11th Congress of the WAP": "Psychoanalytic Allegory of the Stool"
On February 16th, 2018, Miquel Bassols participated in the Seminar of the Freudian Field of Barcelona. His accurate reading of Lacan's text "On a question preliminary to any possible treatment of psychosis", served as an approach to the theme of the next Congress of the WAP. During his presentation, he referred to the "three-legged stool", mentioned in Seminar 3, and made use of the work of the artist and Chinese activist Ai Weiwei, a stool with four or three legs, to remind us that "not all stools have to have four legs" to sustain themselves, but at least three are necessary, as pointed out by Jacques Lacan, anticipating with this allegory the clinic of the knots.
