The title of my project is “Jacques Lacan and the Genealogical Critique of Psychoanalysis”. It attempts to renew the debate between psychoanalysis according to Jacques Lacan and the genealogical critique of psychoanalysis that Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari develop in Anti-Oedipus, by focusing on the ultimate structure that psychoanalysis finds in contemporary subjectivity: the death drive. At issue is, in the first place, establishing a Lacanian doctrine of said notion as a limit-structure between the symbolic and the real, as well as an exposition of the way it appears in Anti-Oedipus. In the second place, the issue is delimiting the philosophical problem that is not only the aporetic character of the references said work makes to Lacan, but moreover the ontological incommensurability with which both sides, as well as the anti-Oedipal critique of Lacan, interpret the repetition that defines the obscure Freudian concept.
