Olivier Ouvry: Lacan, theoretician of pubertal development?

We explore ways in which J. Lacan could be considered a theoretician of pubertal development without being aware of it, analogous to the way Freud examined the infantile period though analysis of young women. Through a paradigm change, of which J. Lacan was unaware, between his Seminar, Book V which posits the existence of an Other of the Other and The Seminar, Book VI where is no more Other of the Other, our exploration develops the argument made in J-A Miller’s lecture in 2013: “The Other Without the Other”.
