The Triumph of Religion (Paperback).

The psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (1901-1981) was one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers. I am a great fan of Bruce Fink whose own books give the non-clinician great insight into the clinical Lacan. His many published works include Ecrits and The Seminars. He is one of those very rare Lacanians that can actually step outside the Lacanian vocabulary to say something. I was very optimistic about this new translation, however it doesn't seem to me to be a significantly better translation than the Sheridan one.

"I am the product of priests", Lacan once said of himself. Educated by the Marist Brothers (or Little Brothers of Mary), he was a pious child and acquired considerable, personal knowledge of the torments and cunning of Christian spirituality. He was wonderfully able to speak to Catholics and to bring them around to psychoanalysis. Jesuits flocked to his school.Freud, an old-style Enlightenment optimist, believed religion was merely an illusion that the progress of the scientific spirit would dissipate in the future. Lacan did not share this belief in the slightest: he thought, on the contrary, that the true religion, Roman Catholicism, would take in everyone in the end, pouring bucketsful of meaning over the ever more insistent and unbearable real that we, in our times, owe to science. - Jacques-Alain Miller

This is a cute little book, with transcripts (translated into English) of short lectures by Lacan from an insignificant 1960 symposium:

"Regarding Morality, Freud Has What It Takes"
"Can Psychoanalysis Constitute the Kind of Ethics Necessitated by our Times?"

The second half of the book is a Q&A session of the symposium, in which the following topics were covered (or rather, these questions were asked of the speaker):

-Governing Educating and Analyzing
-The Anxiety of Scientists
-The Triumph of Religion (over Psychoanalysis)
-Closing the Symposium
-The Word Brings Jouissance
-Getting used to the Real
-Not Philosophizing

Don't think of these as chapters - each one is just a few pages long. The title (""Triumph of Religion") was chosen by the symposium, not the speaker.

If you read French, these have been published several times in French journals. They're also online (free) in French, but this is the first widely available translation in English.

These talks provide a personal glimpse of the speaker, but they really don't add anything to the overall work of Lacan. I was hoping these transcripts would tell me more about Lacan's understanding of religion, but there is actually very little discussion on what you or I would probably call "religion". Lacan mentions that Christianity (Roman Catholicism) is the "one true religion", but doesn't elaborate much.

For me, the second half of the book (the Q&A) was the most interesting. Lacan gets quite testy with the interviewer, who is asking many of the same questions I would have asked Lacan given the opportunity. And there are funny little insights in here. For example, the interviewer asks: Is there anything that..."isn't an act of faith (foi)?", And Lacan does a little play on words, indicating that all faith (foi) is bedlam (foire). (In French vernacular, foire can mean "messed up" or "F*ed up"). Or, he may have been saying all of life (religion, culture, etc) is bedlam.

Also, Lacan vehemently denies that he is ontological in the slightest (up until that point, I thought I was reading a mostly ontological argument LOL) ... and he is quite candid about his disdain for Kant.

This book is part of a new series (translated by Bruce Fink), that maybe fill in some gaps, but they do not present a whole (or new) argument. I think it's intended for libraries & Lacanian studies (although, if you're a serious student of Lacan, you probably read French already and have access to all of these things). The book series feels a bit opportunistic, where the publisher is looking for every little scrap of previously unpublished material. It reminds me a little bit of a friend who has a Picasso scribble on a napkin, and ended up framing & displaying it.

For the casual reader, there are much better (more substantive) things to read by Lacan. And if you're interested in getting a "personal taste" of Lacan (interviews & speeches), you can find things like that on Youtube.
This volume collects essays that, loosely, could be said to offer a testimony of the value of psychoanalysis to people who orient themselves by their faith. It is not, however, always an obvious or explicit set of arguments. One will not tend, especially in the first essay, to see Lacan saying explicitly why Catholics ought to study Freud. However, Lacan does do a remarkable job here of defining Freud's worth in general (and in particular Freud's work on faith in Moses and Monotheism, for example) and of defining Lacan's own terms (like the Thing). As many 20th century European philosophers and psychologists did, Lacan deploys terms more often than he defines them, though, and the casual reader will need to be patient and attentive in order to get what Lacan is saying.

I found the essays remarkably lucid and readable. And I think they would serve an undergraduate or graduate student in philosophy or psychoanalysis well.

two talks on psychoanalytic practice and religion, that is, the catholic religion. in the first talk, divided in two lectures, open to the general public, given in 1960 at the faculties universitaires saint-louis in brussels, belgium, lacan points out a similarities. both professions involve confessors, both answer to `the law' of the father in their practice. lacan says that what concerns him is ethics. he speaks of ethics as situated in the texts of freud, and freudian topics of desire, narcissism, and freud's returns to judeo-christian religion. it was with the scripture commandment: Love thy neighbor as thyself, that freud arrived at the limit of religion with the `as thyself'. lacan goes further and describes the failure of kant's categorical imperative. philosophy no longer has anything to say and psychoanalysis is only surviving.

14 years later in rome, lacan, answering questions by italian journalists, will speak of the triumph of religion. the questions asked in the press conference aren't exclusively about religion, but lacan's remarks have bearing on his early lectures. to a question from a journalist that religion and psychoanalysis both have confessors, he answers, not, people come to psychoanalysts to talk not confess. lacan has become a stand up comedian. he even says: `Funny things happen. This is perhaps the pathway by which one can hope for a future for psychoanalysis--psychoanalysis would have to devote itself sufficiently to funny things.' fortunately, his interlocutors are fearless and press on with questions, and an occasional back and forth sallies. lacan also speaks of science and the real, offers a few words on kant and sade, and tells why it is not necessary to educate.

translation by bruce fink. selection of texts by Jacques-alain miller. not as `obscure and difficult' as lacan's other texts, which makes this book a good place to look for readers curious about the noise surrounding lacan.
