Summary

Since Lacan is the latest volume of the Papers of the Freudian School of Melbourne, School of Lacanian Psychoanalysis, founded in 1977. As such it is comprised of original papers by analysts and members of the School and other invited international contributors. Three and a half decades after the death of Lacan the papers in Since Lacan can be read as a response to the question as to what difference Lacan's teaching has made in the field of psychoanalysis. A critique is provided of the 'mis'-directions taken in the past thirty years. It takes further Lacan's own recognition of being 'traumatised by misunderstanding' which he tired of 'dissolving'. These papers, while marked by their origin in Lacanian discourse, take up the opening offered by the fact that Lacanian discourse is neither closed nor complete. They demonstrate the possibility of moving from the origin to originality in an antipodean place and a time far removed from any imaginary Lacanian centre.
