Oplægsholder. Titel: “Revolutions of Knowledge: Jacques Lacan on Knowledge and Economy in Seminar XVII”. Abstract: Knowledge is at the core of today’s political struggles, as several contemporary Marxists emphasize, most prominently Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt. The wager of this presentation is that Lacan in Seminar XVII provides the framework for a broadening of the scope of how knowledge functions in power relations. By closely examining the role of knowledge in the Lacanian “four discourses”, what emerges is a theory of knowledge, in which knowledge can function from four different positions: Knowledge can function as Other, as agent, as production and as truth.
