Each 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, the seminars are not difficult to read, but it can still be hard to follow the train of associations and links that Lacan makes. Usually, though, in 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.
