Title: Meaning and Jouissance: The Question of Interpretation

The overlapping of meaning and jouissance determines an empty space, usually understood as non-sense (non-sens). This field is critical for the practice of interpretation which proceeds by a process of reevaluation and a reworking of all logical, epistemical and ethical values. As such, it constitutes a basis for the clinical and doctrinal field of psychoanalysis. This presentation will be highlighted by clinical
examples.
