For decades, at the Sainte-Anne hospital, Lacan developed his return to Freud. His aim was to tear the unconscious away from medicalisation, and psychotherapeutic understanding. In 1964, he established a dialogue at the École Normale Supérieure, in order to show that the unconscious is neither being nor substance, even if his conceptualisation is in relation to Descartes and Aristotle.
Reading of three chapters of Seminar XI – the Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis will open the following questions:

1) Why does the unconscious reveal a gap?
2) What is the relation between the unconscious and time?
3) What is the connection between the unconscious, the real and Kierkegaard?
4) How do dreams and traumas reveal themselves in psychoanalytic practice?
