Title: The Subject of the Unconscious; The Subject of the Cogito.

Lacan's notion of the subject as constituted by the signifier differs radically from the notion of the subject that derives from classical epistemology. By examining the philosophical tradition that begins with Descartes, we will pay attention to the emergence of the Cogito and explore both its correlation and its radical departure from the notion of the subject of the unconscious.

Recommended Readings:

• Descartes, Rene: Meditations on the First Philosophy.
• Lacan, J Seminar XI Four Fundamental Concepts. Chapters III, IV, XVI, XVII.
