"The Triumph of Religion": Lacanian perspectives on (a)theology
Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands)
19-20 September 2007

At a press conference in Rome, 1974, when asked for his opinion about the
relation between psychoanalysis and religion, Lacan promptly replies: "In
the end, it is either the one, or the other." But he hesitates answering the
next question - 'who, then, will win the battle?' - and finally states that
"religion will never go down." Religion, so he adds, will "triumph." And
after a moment of doubt, he feels compelled to say the opposite about
psychoanalysis: it will certainly not triumph, at the best it will succeed
in 'surviving.'
