Welcome to the site of the École lacanienne de Tokyo !

If you intend to learn really psychoanalysis, you must enter into a personal experience of
psychoanalysis, because transmission of psychoanalytical knowledge will be effected only through
your own analytical experience.

The Ecole lacanienne de Tokyo founded on Lacan’s borromeanity with Freud and Heidegger is
the only place in Japan where you can learn really psychoanalysis.

That every human being becomes psychoanalyst through one’s own analytical experience, that is
the final aim of the Ecole lacanienne de Tokyo, because to be a psychoanalyst is one of possible
ways of desalienation-liberation for us modern human beings who are always in the age of

What is psychoanalysis ?

Psychoanalysis is the practical phenomenology of the Being of human subject as far as we live
in language, that is to say, as far as we are what Lacan calls parlêtre (In-language-Being).

According to the phenomenological structure of the truth of the Being, a psychoanalytical school
has a double function : on one hand it concerns the Being as such in its own truth, and on the
other hand it presentifies psychoanalysis on the dimension of beings as such in whole. Lacan
calls the former function « psychoanalysis in intension » and the latter « psychoanalysis in
extension ». This one consists in all the discourses about the psychoanalytical subject, that one
in the psychoanalytical practice as such no matter how you call it, personal analysis or training

So the function of the Ecole lacanienne de Tokyo is double too. On one hand it offers to every
In-language-Being a possibility of having one’s own experience of psychoanalysis. On the other
hand it organizes seminars open to the public to develop the question concerning the Being of
psychoanalytical subject.
