Speech
Given [[Lacan]]'s insistence that [[speech]] is the only medium of [[psychoanalysis]],<ref>{{E}} p.40</ref> it is perhaps appropriate that the original means by which [[Lacan]] developed and expounded his ideas should have been the spoken [[word]].
As [[Lacan]]'s [[[[seminar]]]]s became increasingly popular, demand grew for written transcripts of the [[seminar]].
However, apart from a few small articles that he wrote on the basis of some lectures delivered in the course of the [[seminar]], [[Lacan]] never published any account of his own [[[[seminar]]]]s.
In 1956-9 [[Lacan]] authorised Jean-Bertrand Pontalis to publish a few summaries of sections of the [[seminar]] during those years, but this as not enough to satisfy the growing demand for written accounts of [[Lacan]]'s teaching.
Hence unauthorised transcripts of [[Lacan]]'s [[seminar]] began increasingly to be circulated among his followers in an almost clandestine way.
Even during [[Lacan]]'s lifetime, the [[seminar ]] circulated in the form of photocopies of diverse and unreliable written versions of the spoken text.
Beginning in 1973, [[Lacan ]] entrusted the transcription of the [[seminar ]] to [[Jacques-Alain Miller]].
In 1973, [[Lacan]] allowed his son-in-law, [[Jacques-Alain Miller]], to publish an edited transcript of the lectures given in 1964, the eleventh year of the [[seminar]].
Unauthorised transcripts of the unpublished years of the [[seminar]] continue to circulate today, both in [[France]] and abroad.
[[Name-of-the-Father ]] was to be the next [[seminar]], but only a single session was given, on November 25, 1963, at [[Sainte-Anne Hospital. Lacan stopped giving this seminar when he learned that the International Psychoanalytical Association had refused to reinstate him as a training analyst]].
Each [[Lacan]] stopped giving this [[seminar contains approximately 25 presentations from the weekly seminar. While each presentation is supposed to pick up and follow on from the week before, the connections can often be tenuous. Unlike the ''Écrits'', ]] when he learned that the seminars are not difficult to read, but it can still be hard [[International Psychoanalytical Association]] had refused to follow the train of associations and links that Lacan makes. Usually, though, in reinstate him as a performative flourish Lacan will pull the whole presentation together in the final moments and provide a startlingly clear and understandable formulation of what he has been talking about[[training]] [[analyst]].
