We shall explore further implications of this concept for religious and sociological thought. How do the late teachings of Jacques Lacan help us to navigate contemporary capitalism, therapy or self-help culture, and mystical or apophatic theology? Join us live once weekly for a total of three weeks with lectures and discussions.
